The kids wanted to go in here and despite the adults' better judgment, some of the party did. Pleasantly surprised with the displays and how long we spent there! Totally thought it would be a 10 minute visit but were there over an hour!

We came to Wildwood for a long weekend. Unfortunately, we picked the wrong weekend because it rained all weekend long. Being trapped in a motel with two little boys was not exactly easy so we ventured onto the boardwalk and found this aquarium. It was very small but my kids loved it. The got to see some really neat fish... More

My boyfriend and I were looking for something to do on a very cold September Saturday night. We have been to Wildwood many times and never even noticed the aquarium. Everything on the boardwalk was closing or closed. We saw the aquarium sign and reluctantly walked over thinking it would be ridiculously expensive. To our shock it was only 8... More

Very small and felt bad for the "residents" Enclosures were small and not a lot to see. It was something to do when it was raining and little kids may enjoy it but I was disappointed.

I liked the fact that these animals were rescue animals. Good learning opportunity for the very young to see a few different sea creatures.

When I was a kid, my mother only took me once and never again because it was a dump. Brought my own daughter recently and was pleasantly surprised. New ownership has been making great improvements! As soon as we walked in, someone was educating us on the Moray Eel, since he was the first exhibit we saw. I had about... More

It's a cute little spot to stop in and check out the aquarium. They have lil monkeys, piranhas, puffer fish, crocodiles, Moray Eel, Turtles, sharks, Big Iguana that doesn't like being Social, a beautiful fountain with different fish in it. Its a good place to soak up some knowledge on nature.

They're doing rescue work!! Bravo for a tidy and clean fish / reptile/ mammal environment . Definitely worth the small fee to help save the rescues!
