This place is so drab compared to other aquariums we have been to. There are basically handful of species. The place stinks. Its very unkempt.

Its also in a very unsafe, rundown area of town. Save the money. Dont go.

We love going to aquariums. This one is $15/person (50% military discount). We watched the Seal Show that lasted 15 minutes and then viewing the rest of the aquarium took about 6 minutes. It's very small and will not fill your day or even half your day. We like to support aquaiurms and the animals though so, it's whatever.

I really liked the aquarium but we all agree that for it's size it was overpriced at $14.95 for an adult. About 3 dozen exhibits in the downstairs with another dozen upstairs (a third of that floor is being renovated into new displays to be opened in 2019. For me, the sea lion show was the highlight but even that was short. We spent an hour here and 20 minutes of that was waiting for the show. The advertisements for the aquarium feature penguins but that was a disappointment. A half dozen birds all standing in the rear of the exhibit with their backs turned to us. I think they were waiting for food to be dropped in.

This was very disappointing. Go to Sea World!!!!!!! Not very much acquatic life. You can see everything in 15 minutes or less. If you want an acquatic thrill of a lifetime, visit the Atlantis Hotel in the Bahamas. You don't have to stay there to tour their acquarium. You'll be amazed.

First I have to give a shout-out to how wonderful the staff was. There was a small issue with the ticket I'd bought online and they were very helpful in getting it sorted.

The aquarium is on the small side, but the exhibits are great! We caught the seal show while we were there, which was really quite fun. I've been to a lot of aquariums and this one had some exhibits I hadn't seen before. This was really perfect for a quick roadside attraction to take a break and stretch your legs. We were there for about an hour, and it was a very enjoyable experience. I would recommend this place to anyone travelling in the area.
