The acquarium it self was nice nothing extradonary. What I loved most was the outside grounds of the aquarium. When you exit though the back you have get a beautiful view of the ocean. There is alot of green space to sit and relax or have the kids run around. A little further down there is a huge kids park all part of the acquarium grounds! I think there was more people at the kids park than inside the acquarium. The kids loved playing in the multiple play areas.

This aquarium is not the biggest of the world, but the majesty of teaching visitors explaining about the ecosystems and species is very creative. It's worth knowing about corals and its structure.

Turtles, turtles, fishes and more turtles. LOL, need more animals, I was pleased with the ocean view. Just lovely. There is also kids park in the back of the aquarium. Lazy sharks! They sleep all day. A huge turtle sleeps on their heads and yet..they don't wake up. This aquarium needs repairs. The windows are leaking water from the tunnel.

The aquarium has a nice collection of local species with some really nice displays. There are some incredibly family picnic spots and a great children's area to make this not just a visit to the aquaium, but a family event. Popular with schools, this is aquarium does a great job representing the nation and is certainly recommended as a place to visit for a quiet half-day visit.
