The aquarium was absolutely incredible. The Ocean Voyager was my absolute favorite because of the Whale Shark, Manta Rays, and the sea turtle named Tank. But I will warn you, you’ll spend a lot of time in that room. It’s so captivating. The only issue that we did have is that if you buy your tickets through a third party vendor, you’ll have to pay for parking. Make sure you purchase your tickets through the aquariums website to avoid the confusion at the parking machines.

it was amazing. the best time to go is the first thing in the morning and i mean as soon as they open if not be in line before opening. the later it gets the more crowded and uncomfortable it gets. plus if you want decent pictures you want to go early

Great aquarium. Not super crowded like the National Aquarium and the New England Aquarium can be. Loved the sharks and the beluga whales. Only reservation was about the ethics of having sea lions do shows.

A fascinating experience; You get to see creatures you never thought of seeing in real time. A place worth visiting.

The venue was clean the staff was friendly, and the exhibits were 100% enjoyable, amazing, and easy to get to.
