    Pricey admission but nice facilities that got you really close to all the animals. Don't forget the bay is also part of the experience, take it in and look for the Dolphins!

    Pretty good aquarium overall! A little pricey, expect 80$ in admission for two adults and a child if you watch the 4D movie too. The albino Alligator, Bald Eagle and special rescue were the best!

    Various hotels in the area and even on base sometimes offer special rates. However, there are unadvertised discounts for military, AAA members, and seniors if you just ask at the ticket window.
