  • The aquarium is nothing special, but you have the chance to touch walruses, play ball with dolphins, shake hands with the otter and watch some shows. It is a nice place to get close to the animals.  more »

  • I've never seen so many creatures of the sea mistreated to this scale. Please do not waste your money supporting this inhumane facility. Maybe 5% of the animals have the correct housing and space. The worst cases are the walrus, sea lions, sea turtle and sharks. Guinea pigs were cute at least.
  • First of all, this doesn’t reflect on the staff. The staff seemed to care very much for the animals and did the best with the environment they were given to work with. But, the aquarium was not good. The animals (specifically the sea lions, walruses, and the sawfish) were way too big for the spaces they were given- some of them couldn’t even turn around fully. That, and it wasn’t the cleanest either. Please don’t support this place if you can help it!
