    First time we have seen the sea lions show, they did great! We have been coming for years and this year it just seems that a lot of the exhibits were gone. It was a little disappointing.

    Nice outdoor area with birds, otters and seals. Definitely worth the 3 hours.

    Decent aquarium, but small. Has nice outside exhibits of sea otters, seals, aviary, and turkey vulture. Indoor aquarium has a "petting" area good for kids, but lacks many exhibits. 6/10.

    Octopus encounters are awesome! They're much smarter than you realize!

    Swampland ends on Jan 3. Great time to visit the aquarium, lots of it is indoors. This is an aquarium to sit and relax at, don't hurry through it or you will be disappointed.

    Would reccommend for anyone. The areas where the fish and sharks swim right over your head is wild!! great fun

    Although you can see almost all of the aquarium in thirty minutes, I don't recommend it.

    There's an awesome tunnel to go underneath the piranha tank!

    Great aquarium for families - small enough to not kill the little ones and still packed with fun stuff. Read more

    The trash sculptures are amazing. People are slobs.

    Check the paper in the entrance for the feeding times. That's the best time to see the critters active.
