We enjoyed the layout the amount of fish and friendliness of the employees. We will definitely visit again but next time bring the kids with us.

Do yourself a favor and take the following steps: 1. Go visit BOTH the River and the Ocean buildings. The Ocean part is cool with the big tank and the penguins, but the River building has lots more to see. 2. If you have a family of four or more and plan on visiting more than once, get the membership for $100, you will pay for the cost on your second visit and then make money from then on.

When we booked our VIP tour, one of the ladies on the phone said there would be a chance we could see the otters on the tour. I think she was new or something because the tour guide said this was definitely not the case. We would have not bought the VIP tour package if we had known. The rest of the tour was pretty boring. Not worth it to spend extra for it. However, the Aquarium is fantastic and a must see.

Even seniors will enjoy this aquarium. Especially the butterfly exhibit . The kids have plenty of room to explore. Plan to spend a few hours so you can fully enjoy.

the aquarium is unbelievable. So much to see. Both fresh water and salt water. We got to talk to the sea horse expert and learned all about sea horses. we even got to watch them being fed.
