I have many fond memories of visiting this aquarium as my daughter grew up. Now it is even better due to recent investments in the facility.

You can come to this newly renovated museum and learn something new each time! The touch Tank is always a favourtie as well as the feeding of the seals.

The aquarium and staff delivered comprehensive information about local water animals and the history of the area. It's a good place to learn and satisfy one's curiosity through viewing, touching, listening, and reading.

Sorry to hear it was a disappointing experience for you. The water is first pumped from the Bay, yes, but then extensively filtered and recirculated. If you are interested in our systems you might have enjoyed an hour long Behind the Scenes tour. Maybe next...More
