I went to this aquarium, because I saw that they had a seahorse and sea dragon promotion. I have never seen seahorses or sea dragons, and I was pleasantly surprised with the quantities that they had at this aquarium. It was a magical experience! I...More

It was insanely hot outside and the aquarium was a great break from the heat. Of course in comparison with Atlanta it pales but still a nice reprieve. The sea lions were fun to watch and the shark tanks were neat to explore.

Went with extended family from San Francisco and thoroughly enjoyed it. There were 14 of us (8 adults & 6 kiddos ages 1 1/2 to 6 years old) Everyone had a blast! Will definitely do this again!

GREAT for kids of all ages. I've taken five year olds and 90-year-olds, and plenty of children, teens and adults in between. All loved the experience. We were members for several years and now go 2-3 times a year, if we see discounts. This was...More

At that time it will probably be pretty long. If possible, get there when the ticket office opens to avoid the long lines

The whale watching tour would be fine for a 2 year old - the downstairs indoor seating area is enclosed (no chance of falling overboard!) and has huge windows so you can still see really well.
