The aviary right when you walk into the aquarium has some awesome characters hanging about! The sharks, local tropical fish and eels are something else! As are the very playful Bottle Nose Dolphins, which you can swim with. My favorite were the Giant Sea Turtles!...More

Spend a couple of hours there. Tours can be guided or on your own. Surprising how many different exhibits they had. We caught the 11:00 am dolphin show which was fun. The jellyfish, manatee, and penguins were our favorites. Worth a visit.
