Took a lady friend here for a date. We both enjoyed the place, we got to see a lot of marine life for the first time because of the vast variety of sea creatures that they had. The place itself was clean and organized. It was big enough to explore for an hour or two but you can definitely sit down, have a conversation and stay longer to watch fishes, sharks and whales like we did. We had a magical experience and I know that with the right person you will too!
This aquarium is extremely knowledgeable about caring for their animals and educating their guests. I loved having a bite to eat next to the majestic whale sharks almost as much as I loved helping feed the dolphins and admiring the sea turtles. The season pass is definitely worth it if you're going to go more than 2 times in a single year and, trust me, with as many events as the host you'll wanna go more than once!
