    We love the Aquarium and all its habitants. Parking can sometimes be an issue but it's all fun inside.

    Be sure to check out as many shows as you can and leave a whole day to do it. Everything is very humane and well done@plus they have a great 4d film!

    There are short feature programs focusing on different animals every hour: penguin program is good, so is the one on whales.

    if u have two adults going, buy one adult membership and you get one free admission along with it, price almost the same as buying two adult ticket, plus you get discount on most purchase and food.

    Wonderful aquarium right in the park. Terrific live shows, 4D theater and informative, well presented exhibits. Clownfish Cove is a fun spot for the under 8 kids.

    Instead of lining up at the front gate for a ticket, use the fast check-ins along the side and skip the line ups. They only accept credit cards.

    Do not go if you hate crowds or small children. It's curated in a way that you won't have trouble seeing anything, though.

    You'll get the best view of dolphins and sea lions performing if you go during an informal feeding time (around noon when I went).

    If you haven't done it before, the 4D experience is well-worth 1/2 the price of your admission.

    Avoid the 'free' app snappz. 3 QR code locations then you (or your kids) need $3.99 to unlock. Better to just be creative & make up a game to keep kids engaged. Feels like a cash grab!
