    The marsh pier is a great spot for photos of the aquarium, bridge, downtown and the Lexington. Come near closing time for best shots.

    Want to get splashed by a Dolphin during the show? There's a higher chance of that if you sit on the left side of the arena.

    Great place to visit for the whole family! Exhibits are always added and improving so come again. Plus with the aquarium's conservation and rehabilitation efforts, you're supporting a great cause too!

    Get your trays of fish to feed the dolphins early. They give you a ticket to redeem when it's time for the show. They only have a limited amount of trays. I you wait till show time it's too late.

    If you're visiting during the Summer or other busy times of the year, pre-purchase your tickets at the Aquarium website and you can skip the line. Just redeem your printed tickets at guest services.

    Dollar admission days are on the first Sunday in December and MLK day. But just a heads up it'll be the busiest days at the Aquarium too. 7,000-8,000 people and a line lasting around an hour.

    Stop supporting the captivity of porpoises, dolphins and orcas. Your money would be better spent helping conservation efforts for these animals to survive and thrive in the wild.

    Dolphin show was great!!!!! The aquarium is smaller than I thought it would be. It is right next to the Lexington and the Art Museum though. There are plenty of hotels, motels around it too. :-)

    Looking for a quiet place to relax while your little one has fun? There is a children activity room on the third floor where kids can do crafts, do puppet shows and puzzles while you sit for a bit.
