Had a lot of fun. The shark tanks were closed so we only got to see them. My kids loved the touch tanks. Did think it was a little pricey not something we'd visit again because of the price.

Great spot for families, but we are two adults that enjoyed it as well. Butterfly house was the hit. The aquarium is just so so.

Well kept facility with knowledgeable volunteers. Marine displays are interesting. Butterfly house, while it had a lot of butterflies, could have a wider range of species.

Marine Cove was more than what we expected. You can pet sharks & sting rays. Lots of viewing tanks for other marine life. The butterfly house was amazing; so full of life and color.

Butterflies galore! And the cutest little quails running around. Also nice aquarium with the chance to touch live sea creatures. There was a very knowledgeable volunteer there also sharing fun facts with the kids. It is also in the same area as a GREAT playground! Lots of different play structures for all ages to enjoy.
