Truly an experience to remember! My family and I spent a good part of the day learning and observing many creatures of the sea and of the land. This is an educational aquarium as well as a fun event for all!!!

This was not my first trip to the Aquarium but it had been over a decade and I thought I would remember it. I was wrong as the exhibits were better than my memory and I learned a lot. It was a little dark in some places but the ambience was perfect. I would have liked to see more sharks of different species. I also felt bad for the dolphins in such a small area.

This was the coolest aquarium I have been too! I loved that there were multiple floors and I was able to look at the tanks from above! I asked one of the employees a question, and he was very helpful and informative about the different types of fish and sharks in the tank. I would definitely visit again!

In comparison to our local aquarium (Boston), we were absolutely blown away. This aquarium offers such a great variety of aquarium animals. We specially loved the 3-legged turtle. We had a great visit there!
