The Sea Aquarium does an amazing job of education and research. The progrM they have with the Dolphin Academy for children with special needs is truly inspirational.

We took a cab from our ship $25 for the ride but can be split with others. The Dolphin show was the highlight they had a small tour and pelicans. Children would enjoy this Aquarium

We visited the aquarium following a scuba dive with the dolphins. However, you would still enjoy a day or half day here even if you just visit. The sea lion show was great, the feeding of various species interesting and plenty to do. It is...More

Yes it allows you to see all the shows advertised. The only things you would pay more for would be if you wanted to interact with the animals such as swimming with the Dolphins or snorkeling for example

The ticket price only gets you in to view the exhibit and the so called shows they put on. Not worth it in my opinion. The price to be in the water and touch the dolphins was 99$. To swim with them was twice as much. Way to... More
