This is a small, well maintained sea aquarium with a friendly staff. The outdoor tanks are used for the bigger sea animals, and as touch tanks. Small and big kids will enjoy the tours and exhibits.

The SEA Lab operates on local support and donations only. It was wonderful to learn about local species and to get to touch corn sharks, sea anemones, starfish, and sea cucumbers. I recommend visiting and donating as much as you can afford.

Most of the exhibits were empty. Guess someone broke in and took the Fisk and they never recovered from it. Sad.

Yes, I would agree with Susan J. It is very much for younger children. Your teenage youngsters may be impressed with the Mermaid who can be booked for kids birthday parties!
