I'm a biology geek, so any aquarium is my cup of tea. This isn't comparable to Atlanta's or Baltimore but either is the cost.

We were here with our 9 yr old grandson. Well worth the cost for both adults and children. They have a 320 lb turtle called Hunter that my grandson loved. We were able to see the sharks being fed.

Great little aquarium. Very friendly tour guides and very informative. Loved the turtles and the stories of how they were rescued, and the on-going project of designing a new flipper for one of them. Worth visiting!

This is probably one of the cutest little aquariums I've ever seen! And it is little! But don't let it's size fool you! It's still worth going to. They feed different sharks and some big ole' fish and it was amazing to watch! Located right...More
