I was disappointed with this place. It cost $100 for 2 adults and 2 small kids to go see fish. It seems like a legit place because it’s so big, but everything is just so spread out so it takes longer to walk around.

A nice aquarium. Growing up on the east coast, this gave a look into the pacific aqua life. There are some beautiful representations here at the facility. Staff appear to enjoy their work as well. A nice afternoon.

One of the better aquariums compared to others around the world. The exhibits are very clean and very well maintained. You may wanna expect that, but its not always the case. What I found very noteworthy is the fact, that they let visitors touch animals....More
