This is not a huge aquarium, but it feels like it is. The main feature (besides the dolphin show which features a human/dolphin swimming/jumping tandem routine) is a massive 2 story open ocean tank - one of the best multi-species tanks I've ever seen at...More

2 floors of display. The main attraction is the 20 minute dolphin sea lion show. They also have great penguins and let you pet them for a few seconds during "friendly" time 2x/day in summer. Pretty good aquarium.

Being originally from a tropical country, I was amazed to see the penguins. You can see different kinds amd they are all so adorable (like from Happy Feet and Madagascar). There's also a special time where you can touch and take your pictures with them....More

I loved every minute of my visit. The crowds were massive because of the summer holiday and it being the first month it was open, but still it was great. The interactive exhibits were great and there was enough english signage to make it enjoyable...More
