Incredible place to visit. Prime location with a reasonable entry fee, very welcoming and helpful staff. The aquarium seemed never-ending with all the things to see and do, with a large amount of very interesting attractions. Very good photo opportunities and loads of fun for all ages. Penguin boat ride was a very nice touch.
Going to a place like this specially on a weekend you would consider it to be quite hectic, and indeed it was. Full of children and lots of noise, but overall the experience wasn’t marred too much by this. I would say that the manatee was the highlight, as well as the penguins. The way this place presents its animals and fish is quite amazing. I recommend going when it’s not too busy, say during the week day that is not on a school holiday.
