It was not a great aquarium. They had some cool fish but was horribly laid out and very small for the price

Nice aquarium. Teenage kids liked it. Good location. Pricey but everything is while on vacation. Took around 90 minutes to get thru

Love love loved this aquarium. I've been to many aquariums and this is one of my top faves. It's clean and well laid out and has so many things to see. I particularly love the mermaid picture shoot and show. My daughter loved it. It also has a glass boat experience which is so cool. Sting ray petting and being able to crawl through tunnels to see inside aquariums are huge bonuses I highly recommend seeing this place
This aquarium is outstanding. The boat ride is great and the open sting ray touching exhibit was awesome! The only reason I'm giving this such a low rating is because of the Penguin Encounter. A TOTAL RIP OFF. they have you sit in a big room and just have ONE Penguin roam around. No touching, playing, or feeding the penguin. Choose the right seats because if the penguin doesn't go near you then too bad. They also chose a penguin named Saba that they are trying to mate with another penguin. So only thing Saba did was pick a corner far away from everyone and nest there. Even the little kids that joined us weren't having any fun. $70+ just to watch a penguin. DON'T DO THIS ENCOUNTER UNTIL THEY ALLOW TOUCHING AGAIN. NOT WORTH IT RIGHT NOW.
