Great way to waste some time inside. In comparison to other larger aquariums not much to see but still a worth while stop

Ideal for families. Shark reef is a smallish attraction which enables visitors to get close the the sea life on show. Takes around an hour to complete the tour so long enough for youngsters to retain attention

This tour was amazing!

Took longer to walk from the parking garage than it did to go through it.

Really nice aquarium. Enjoyed reading the different plaques about certain sealife. Liked touching the little sting rays/ horseshoe crabs.

Saved money by buying tickets through Viator but it took about 2 hours before will call could see the purchase.

As I expected it was a small exhibit but they could have done a better job on providing information signs on the animals. Their last large shark pool is better than the shark pool at the long beach aquarium.

It was very quick for the money that was paid... could have been more

Cool exhibit. Pretty pricey for what it is though.

This was a fun and informative experience. The exhibits and tanks were clean and very nicely set up so you could see all the marine life clearly. Aquarium staff was friendly and knowledgeable and gladly answered any questions regarding the exhibits. Just remember to stop at the Will Call window to get actual tickets printed out. Would definitely go again.
