The aquarium is quaint. Very small, but fun. It was nice watching the seals and sea lions. It is really cool that the animals that are there are ones that have been "saved and rehabilitated

You can go through in about 30 minutes. It will be longer if you stay for the show. This is a small aquarium. I think it is best suited for children.
