The seals are what makes the place awesome. The touch tanks are nice and easily reachable. Price to get in is fair price

This was our second time to visit the aquarium. We went years ago and were disappointed in how small it was. It is still small. We enjoyed watching the seals getting fed; lucky for us we happened to be there when they were feeding them....More

Love the seals. They smack the water or belly to try get you to feed them. The Place is small, but worth it.

Took our five year old grandson and the best part was feeding the seals. It was a new experience for him. Not a big aquarium but worth a look

This has been around forever. I think it has gotten better. They had 3 Octopus here which was impressive. Quite a bit to see for a family price of under $30.

Old school with some charm. Fun thing to do with kids if the weather isn't letting you enjoy the beach. You can feed the seals and has a small gift shop that doesn't kill you on prices.

The seals are pretty cool, but the space is small and cramped. It’s about $8.50 to get in, and the room is very small. There are a few touch tanks and the rest are glass aquariums. A small gift shop that you can visit without...More
