The best part of the SeaLife Aquarium was walking through the underwater tunnel and seeing sharks swim overhead. As for the rest, we thought it was pretty overpriced for what it offered. For a family of 4 (parents, 20-year old and a 12-year old) tickets...More

Honestly I believe it is. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and it was amazing to hear his experiences about the facility and animals. I am a wildlife major and truly felt as though even I learned quite a bit!
