Get there early in the day and make sure to go straight to customer relations so you can reserve special activities like feeding the string rays. Everyone can watch different presentations but you have to pay extra and reserve early for the kids to have hands on. Definitely worth the extra!!!
The best part was the sting ray exhibit. The stingrays are very social. They have Dolphins, but they won't let you get close enough to really see them. They keep a rope between you and the tank where the Dolphins are. I was a little disappointed. Also, don't spend the extra money on the boat ride to see Dolphins, as we were lucky to see two. I like what they are doing here, but a little expensive for what you truly get to experience.
We love getting to see Winter and Hope after seeing their stories! This aquarium is simply amazing! The staff and volunteers are so informative and friendly. Seeing all the animals they are helping is truly heartwarming! The girls had a blast! We enjoyed our trip to this aquarium and will definitely return soon!
I and my wife took the tour and it appeared to be quite boring. I would recommend seeing the dolphin show and not going when they first open up in the morning unless you want to stand in line. On the tour you see no dolphins and barely see any turtles that they have.
