"Good Family Trip"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5

This was a really good family trip. The aquarium is bigger than I expected. We saw various kinds of fish, glowing fish, sea horses, sea creatures and sharks. There is even an area where children can pet and touch star fish, snails and other safe sea creatures. They have a book for the kids to stamp at each section of the aquarium and when they get all the stamps they get a free gift at the end of the tour. We took pictues at the end and it made for a great family memento. A pleasant, fun and enjoyable trip for the whole family. Very nice! I recommend.

Nice aquarium. Not extremely expensive like all the others. Easy to walk through. You go at your own pace. You can go through as many times as you like. Good gift shop with photo packages. Exhibits were great. Lots of cool and interesting species. And its at the mall in case someone in your party doesn't want to go.

This is where me and my now wife went on our first date. We loved it and have taken our children and friends here and have come back on our own. Great place with a lot of good education involved.

This Sea Life aquarium offers a variety of fresh and salt water seafood. It does have a short water tunnel that allows you to see the fish swim over you plus the undersides of Sea Rays and Sharks. To see all it takes less than 2 hours. The entry fee is reasonable and offers both seniors and military discounts.

Took the family to Sea Life and I was impressed that it was located in a mall. The aquarium staff are knowledgeable and the Behind the Scenes tour is worth it. I was able to find a coupon to lower the admission price by 40%, so I was able to save and enjoy the aquarium.
