      Teaching the next generation about sea life
      Kathy_O, Jul 2022
      The ability to touch starfish and see the octopus were highlights for the 3-year old niece I took. It was her first time to an aquarium and she was mesmerized by the exhibits.
      Nicole_K, Jul 2022
      The aquarium is an extraordinary experience. There is a gorgeous array of sea life and lots of fun touch pools where you can actually touch Rays, jelly fish and small sharks. The bird exhibit is also fantastic. Lots of fun feeding them nectar. Also the Viator ticket service was excellent. I was able to find an early entry ticket time, not available on the aquariums main website.
      Fun time!
      Frank_H, Jul 2022
      If you love the ocean, you must visit to see what's in and around it! Check out the Lorakeets too!!!
      Great experience!
      Alyssa_Z, Jul 2022
      Very great experience! Would highly recommend to go. I went with my boyfriend and we have a great time together. You learn a lot and get to see all these different species. You get to touch stingrays, jellyfish, and star fish. Which was personally my favorite part.

      Wouldn’t go back
      Alice_K, May 2022
      Terrible. They hardly had any sea animals. It was mainly small fish and nothing interesting. Food was terrible frozen meals deep fried. Employees were also rude and all seemed to be annoyed with their job.
      My kids dream visit!

      It was eh
      Sammy_R, Apr 2022
      It was very dirty and almost every glass aquarium was really hard to see or even get a good picture. I wouldn’t recommend this if you wanted to go out on a date but I would recommend it for kids or a school field trip
