Such variety, the kids while teenagers all admired the in depth knowledge the employees shared. Definitely will return.

Absolutely beautiful displays and the tunnels where fishes swim overhead were breathtaking. Be prepared for lots of kids but big enough that the noise level wasn’t overwhelming and plenty of room to see everything.

So not worth the money. Overpriced and a complete cluster **** inside. If the adult tickets were $10 it may be worth it.

It was raining so we decided to visit. Kids loved the touch tank and the shark tunnel. Mermaid show was cute. I wouldn't visit every year but it's worth it once or twice. I'd recommend getting there early to avoid the crowds.

Loved all the history & fish all in one.they have a boat that you can get on & have a glass bottom experience off the tank, they also have a mermaid experience but it wasn’t open so we didn’t get to do it.

During our family vacation took the opportunity to dive the aquarium and had an amazing time. Prior to my dive, the family was taken on a tour of the aquarium and the guide did an outstanding job showing us behind the scenes. After the tour...More

If it's not a day off from school I suspect it would be the same as any Friday, but if you have concerns, I would just give them a call. Really fun place!

it's about a 15 min drive. It's well worth it.
