The glass bottom boat to see the sharks was a must. It was worth the extra charge. You could touch sting rays, jelly fish and horseshoe crabs. You also had an option to swim with the sting rays for an extra fee

It was fun to touch the jelly fish! We hadn't done that before. It was not as good as the Toronto Ripley's Aquarium, but it was very nice and clean.

Family had a fun time but the aquarium was a little over priced for what they had to offer. Try to find a Groupon before paying full price.

AFAIK, there was no shark dive--either in progress or advertised. What you may have seen are advertisements for activities for later in the year.
