This is a fast fun stop if you are in Redondo Beach. You and the kids can learn a lot from this stop. We went there just a few weeks ago after not having been here in years and it feels the same.

This is a small, well maintained sea aquarium with a friendly staff. The outdoor tanks are used for the bigger sea animals, and as touch tanks. Small and big kids will enjoy the tours and exhibits.

Yes, I would agree with Susan J. It is very much for younger children. Your teenage youngsters may be impressed with the Mermaid who can be booked for kids birthday parties!
