  • Small aquarium but in a great location with a neat underground method and sea-level viewing window. A few specific great features like the rotating ice tube, TONS of penguins, and underwater tunnel pool - watch sharks and mantas swim over you! Limited wildlife, and no live turtles I could see. But what they do have is good. Also, SHARK BUS!
  • Penguins and sharks are easily the highlights. Their penguin colony is fascinating to watch both in the water and on land. And the sharks swimming above you in the tunnel is incredibly cool. Staff was all very friendly. Went on a Saturday morning and it wasn’t overwhelmingly busy, although I certainly had to wait my turn to see things. Gift shop at the end is unnecessarily large, but if you’re looking for that kinda thing, it’s there.
