Very informative exhibits with a great combination of detail and live animals. This was a great couple of hours checking out live developing shark embryo, lots of jellyfish, sea horses, star fish, and the list goes on. Loved this place!

A free entrance , though they recommend $5/adult and $1/child. Our 3 yr old grandson loved the exhibits. We spent about an hour there and were never bored. Not a large commercial aquarium, but a value alternative. You can also go to Cabrillo Beach across...More
