It is a 2 hours visit. I was expecting way more fishes, the aquarium area is kind of small. I didn't went to the shows as they were overcrowded and the sun was too heavy. Conclusion: too much fuzz for not much.

At the end the Aquarium is not bad but I was expecting more fishes than birds. There are 3 scheduled shows, sea lions is the best. Price is OK cost-benefit.

Great pictures with family. Shows are entertaining. Lots of animals to see. Very nice landscape. Fish aquariums are stunning. Souvenir shop is very poor.

I was expecting to see the sea lions and local wildlife, but really it was just a bunch of birds and common fish. It is very small and easy to navigate. They have shows every hours for various animals.

This requires a half day minimum to explore it all. They have several mini shows with assorted animals. Excellent

Hard to say if that is the case. They appear well fed but I witnessed some behaviour in some of the animals that would suggest they are suffering....such as pacing up and down the cage and weaving. The tiger just didn't... More
