Stop by the sea turtle center to learn more about the rehabilitation program for injured reptiles before they're returned to the wild. Continue through the complex to see the evolutionary development through fossil displays.

  • Great place to visit and spent 4-6 hours. Lots to see and learn. Great layout and easy to navigate around. All animals are healthy and happy. Staff is friendly and always willing to help. Shop to buy gifts and place to eat and enjoy the day. Walk away from shopping places and hotels. Beach is a walk distance and bicycle friendly around the place. Free parking at the aquarium.
  • Probably the smallest aquarium I have visited, but was impressed for its size. Has a good variety of water species. Located in a former WWI fort it probably different aquarium experience. Great for children!
