Spend a couple of hours there. Tours can be guided or on your own. Surprising how many different exhibits they had. We caught the 11:00 am dolphin show which was fun. The jellyfish, manatee, and penguins were our favorites. Worth a visit.

Definitely worth checking out. Some very cool ways to check out the fish. Nice dolphin show. I always love the medusas (jellyfish). There were penguins there!

Touching the penguins and having them so close is extraordinary. The veterinarians do a great job training them and looking after them. We even had some pictures with them. We learned a lot about penguins. Highly recommendable!!!!! A unique experience!!!

Not worth the money :( the dolphins were fun to watch for a minute. There were way too many people. It felt like cattle being pushed through the halls.

Overall it was a good experience. The place is clean and lol taken care of and it has enough animals to keep it interesting. But some of the bigger creatures (dolphins and belugas) had very small enclosures, which was quite alarming and disappointing. Smaller children...More
