WOW! What a wonderful place. Although a little tearful at time listening to all the rescued marine life stories, it was very heartwarming as well to know they are there to help them!More

This place feels like more of an marine hospital as opposed to a commercial aquarium, but that isn’t a bad thing. You can interact with a lot of the animals and the employees really explain each species and their back stories. Fun fact: this is...More

So much fun! Loved seeing all the animals! Got to hear the Dolphin Tale movies and the actual story differences! Nicholas was also another dolphin that was there that we got to see! Staff was very nice! And Fernando let us touch a Sea Urchin!

Hope and Winter. If you've watched the Dolpin Tale movies then you need to stop. We did the Dolpin experience and it was pretty cool. We all had a good time.

Did the after 4pm tickets. Got to see everything. Wasn't crowded. Had a fun time with Fernando taking time for one on one with our family in the lower exhibit. All staff was friendly. The area is under construction but didn't effect what we did.
