Got to feed the seals. They do tricks to get the fish you throw their way. They have other sea life in tanks, as well as a petting tank. Very good exposure to sea life.

Good variety of sea life and reasonable entry price. No fishy smell. For $2.00 you can feed the seals, which are entertaining. Great way to spend an hour. Do recommend.

Our children had a blast! This was well worth it and the pacific octopus was really cool! Our son also loved doing the crayon rubbings they provided. We would do it again for sure!

It was very relaxing to watch the sea life. Really enjoy watching people feeding the seals like you can at Sea World, but much more inexpensive. It does not take long to see the entire place. We were there off-season. I would recommend off-season visit...More

This is a small aquarium but nicely done. Very informative plaques and friendly, helpful staff add to a fun experience. Watching the feeding of the harbor seals is hilarious.

We brought out 5 year old son here to see the aquarium and we all had a good time. I like that they stamp your hand so you can come and go as much as you want during the day (good for short attention spans)....More

Kids will love this small, manageable aquarium. $2 gets you a plate of slippery fish parts to feed the sea lions who work hard to entertain the crowd and earn their treat. There's a great touching tank where kids can "pet" starfish, urchins and other...More
