We visited the aquarium in October, after the tourist season. We loved it! The displays are amazing and the staff most helpful. Especially loved the jelly fish and all the hands on displays. This is an incredible place - yes it is small, but they...More

Nice aquarium small but cozy. We enjoyed our visit lots of touch tanks to explore. Made you feel welcomed like you were visiting an old friend

This was a cute place. Was hard to get to and had to take a Jitney, and getting one back was really hard. Wish they would have advertised the feeding of the stingray was only during certain times. Good Groupon price

Elevator was out so you have to walk up 3 floors to enjoy this aquarium. Beautiful grounds and by the tour boats with shops and restaurants on the water. Great for kids. Nice place at night for adults by the water.

I can't believe people are bashing this place. It's $10, you can get it for $9 with their free website coupon. Animals need to eat, staff need to be paid, and tanks are expensive to run. Yes, it's small but it's a bargain price when...More
