The tanks for the Sea Lions and Seals are tiny and filthy. Most of the fish are dying or dead in small, ugly, old tanks. We brought our granddaughter and luckily she is only 3, so didn't understand why the fish weren't swimming or laying...More

With all appreciation to the nice people involved, the place horrendous and displays only sad sad fish and deeply disturbed seals. We genuinely hope that these majestic sea creatures and mammals will receive better treatment. Today!

Don't let the seals barking from the inside persuade you to enter. This place is old and unkept. The space that the rescue seals are in is deplorable. Fish tanks are slimy and ancient.

It's very small and actually kind of made me very sad that the seals they do have don't have much room The fish they have are pretty cool. It's very cheap to go to it even if you want to feed the seals.
