We really enjoyed our visit here after a disappointing visit to the Tarkine. Only $15 for a family. There was only 6 tanks but lots of info and history. The children really enjoyed picking up the shells and discovering what was in the treasure chest....More

The Seaquarium was a nice place to spend some time. The sea life was up close and some could be held. Not a large collection but interesting all the same.
