    Disappointed with the amount of fish, etc. Sometimes looked like habitat was empty. Not up to caliber of other aquariums we've been to.

    Very entertaining

    Loved all the exhibits, but our fave was the Parakeet Pointe! So much fun! We could have stayed there all day. Greg was a lot of fun to talk to while we were with the birds.

    Handicap Accessibility

    While it was a nice visit, the wheelchairs can’t make it to all parts of the establishment comfortably. It’s more so geared to children, as we took my elderly mother-in-law, and she seemed uninterested because there were no big creatures to see. The penguins were adorable, but tons of kids so didn’t get a long look.
