I was there during spring break so it was super packed, but still had a great time. Other aquariums have been difficult to get good photos, but I had great luck here.

See this aquarium- It has massive viewing windows, and huge (still NOT fully grown yet !) whale sharks and manta rays. And they are expanding! It is comparable to the New England Aquarium (the penguin exhibit is smaller)

"Excellent Aquarium"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed May 21, 2019 NEW
This aquarium is so huge, so massive that several other more famous aquariums could fit inside. The marine tanks are large enough to be considered inland salt lakes and large enough for the world's largest fish to comfortably swim around. Be sure to travel the motorized tunnel under the water for a true undersea experience. To save time and the lines, buy your tickets ahead online
