Liked it very much, It is not really fancy, but shows a lot about the sea life in the Gulf Coast area. I did take many pictures and loved the big eel!

This aquarium is small featuring mostly local species found in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The exhibits are well marked and designed so that viewing is easy even for children. The volunteers are very helpful and friendly and there is a small gift shop with some interesting items. An added plus is that admission is free. If you are in Rockport, and particularly if you have kids with you, this is a fun and educational stop for an hour.

Lots to see and a great adventure for the kids. The dolphin and seal show are wonderful. Lots of seating and cover from the hot Texas sun.

This is a FREE facility and my kids were geeked about ocean wildlife after our visit. Don't expect to see large aquatic mammals performing tricks here and you will be surprised at the diversity of animals they do have, especially for the cost of the admission. The volunteers at this facility made the visit fantastic and educational. No other Texas aquarium can match the passion of the staff volunteering at this little aquarium. They are knowledgeable, friendly and more than willing to answer the 123240410465313540 questions a kid can ask. Thanks Ed! You made the day!

the aquarium is small but they do a lot to catch your interest with what they have. it's a nice change of pace when needing some time out of the sun, but don't want to stay away from the ocean
