I loved it, but if you are expecting a traditional aquarium, you may be disappointed. This is a rehabilitation facility that only keeps the animals that can't be released back into the wild. All of the staff was friendly and knowledgeable, especially Fernando.

We loved visiting all the attractions, and the admission goes to helping more animals/fish with rescue, rehabilitate and release. And we got to see Hope from the Disney movie "A Dolphins Tail".

My grandsons were here last week from Wisconsin and they wanted to go see the dolphin in the movie, we had a lot of fun. It’s not too big and it’s small kid friendly. We all enjoyed our time at the aquarium.
