  • This is a neat aquarium where the animals are just here on vacation. They get released after a stay of I think up to 6 months. Pretty luxurious place for them.  more »
  • We were looking forward to seeing all the creatures that spend their lives in the acquarium temporarily for the year and then are released, but we went in September and it was closed for the season...  more »

  • This was a last minute impulse decision for our group of 3 to go, and I am so glad we did. The aquarium is small, and the price of admissions reflects that. I brought my 15 year old sister from the interior in, and she fell in love with the touch tanks. The staff was very friendly and offered their expertise when asked. I would highly recommend this aquarium for a quick visit.
  • Took the kids here this week. Loved it. It's a small aquarium, but they've packed a lot of native species into it. The octopus was a hit and the kids loved the touch tanks. The staff were very helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly.
