The aquarium is convenient to get to and parking is very cheap. It's US$21 per adult, half for seniors and free for kids under 4. The sea lion show was a hoot and the dolphin show was great!

My husband is on oxygen so this was a chance for him to see the underwater world. Fortunately there were only 12 people on this so we all had our own little seat. It says it can carry 30 something but I don't think I would like that. It is a confined space but not too bad with only 12... More

The Park gives informative tours, has a water show of dolphins and seals. Eateries inside. A little pricey

Beautiful reef, abundant marine life, seahorse, octopus, sponge, coral, parrot fish, trumpet fish, etcetera. It has an easy access from shore, so you can swim to the reef without much effort, depending of course of the weather . We went with Ocean Encounter diving, great diving company. Our diver guides were David C and Cherina, and they are greatttttttt!!!
