  • Loved this trip to the Aquarium. We saw all the otters and boy were they showing off! The seals were putting on a show of their own. So many beautiful fish and so many people enjoying themselves. It was a great day.
  • Very cute aquarium. The best part is that there are not too many people here. It was not crowded when we came to visit. They has a beautiful selection of fish. The sea lions were also very cute.
