Yes, you can even though it is a smaller aquarium. They have feeding scheduled from 11 am through 3 I believe. You can interact with the people who feed and care with the turtles, sharks, and manatees.

I know this answer is super late. I didn't even know I had an inbox let alone that someone could post questions. However I have no idea. I was just visiting and we walked from our hotel. It was about a mile and a half for us, but it was enjoyable.
