It is a good place to visit with children. Good staff and maintenance. Different types of living beings from the sea. Food services are not good. The penguins walk could be skipped. They not seem to be happy. Indoor and outdoor attractions.

Nice aquarium and not as large as the one in Okinawa but still fun to go. Perfect for half a day. There is a Red Lobster next to it and we love the food there.

Loved the dolphin and sardine shows. Loved the displays, they were all at the right height for my little 3 years old kiddo. He could see everything juts like everyone else. Bring your own lunch it will be cheaper and better.

If you want to see the Dolphin and Seal shows (which I highly recommend) then I would say to allocate about 3 to 3.5 hours depending on the show schedules, if not then it's probably about a 1.5 to 2 hour activity. I think... More

The shows are on several times a day but some exhibits undergo periodic maintenance, so call ahead if your time at the aquarium is limited. During the week there are school groups but the place was not busy so no problems... More
