We enjoyed an afternoon at the Seaquarium. There were many families enjoying the various sea animals. The venue had a rustic charm.

Hi Deborah525, Thank you for sharing your experience with us! I must say, the seal swim is my favorite animal encounter. It's wonderful to read how much you and your son enjoyed the encounter and we'd love for you both to visit the park again.
