This is a world class aquarium with two buildings--one for salt water and one for fresh water. The exhibits are well presented and there are easy to see signs about each tank. The butterfly house was a great surprise! There are great benches for older guests and the ramp design of the river experience building makes it great for strollers or wheelchairs.

We love this aquarium! Great for all ages but plan on walking. There is a fresh water building, salt water building and then the I-Max.

Captain Kyle & Freedom were oh so nice on this trip. Being a boat captain myself I was asked to come below to captain this beautiful boat. OMG....what an experience! The crew was so knowledgeable and very friendly.

You don't see a lot of freshwater aquariums, but this one is huge. The jelly fish exhibit is stunning. The freshwater takes a lot longer than the salt water, as you explore different levels of the same tank. Very well done.
