Fun and Informative

Took a trip to the aquarium and loved it! Very clean, easy path to follow. If your looking to be up close in personal with anything from Nemo to Sharks this is the place to go. Also, for parents it's an incredible wealth of knowledge for the kids. Everything is simplified and made easy to understand. When you first enter they take a family photo. That brings me to the reason I dropped off one star - just because trying to get the picture at the end of the day ended up being to long of a wait. They do give you a card so you can receive your picture from the web. I recommend getting the picture earlier rather than later to save yourself time. Overall, excellent experience and fun for kids to adults.
Okay... very crowded on Saturdayl

Frankly a victim of its success... letting too many people in so everyone has to jostle to see the exhibits which are all excellent.
Unique Aquarium Layout by country & terrain

I absolutely loved the layout of this aquarium. It had layers! Literally escalators to the different layers of the terrains that were featured in the wild. I spent an entire afternoon wandering about. I went on a Sunday afternoon & it was a bit crowded- wish I had went on a weekday but I got to see a lot of shark & fish feedings. My favorite part was the dolphin shows & the relationships the trainers have with them. You can tell they genuinely love the animals & their jobs! The aquarium itself is huge on conservation- definitely made me more aware of my practices with recycling & such! Enjoy!
Nice place to spend the day

I have been to a number of aquariums and this was one of the nicer ones. Strictly indoors so something to do if the weather is not that great. It had a nice flow and it was easy to see and follow the exhibits. The open reef tank was the highlight of the aquarium with numerous viewing platforms and the mangorves exhibit was one of the best I have seen. I was not fond of the dolphin exhibit but that is my personal choice since I felt they needed more space for such a large animal.

I was at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta a few days ago and personally I thought this one was even better. It may not be as big, but the layout made for a more fluid experience, there was lots of amazing stuff on display (I especially loved the sea turtle and the rays in the main tank, the various sharks, and the octopus in one of the smaller tanks), and it was far less crowded.
