Others have raved about the Sea Lab and I took my family several times--and I just didnt get it. Its a bit run down and very very tiny. And THEN we took the tour. Pet sharks, anemones, see GIANT sea bass. Its great.

This is a nice, informative, small educational experience of local marine life. Don’t hedge on the donation. It is an accessible opportunity to see interesting sea creatures. I like visiting the aquarium pools in the back courtyard.

Nice place to go to see fish and invertebrates without 5 inches of glass between you and the water! The staff is well trained, so go on a free tour.

Yes, I would agree with Susan J. It is very much for younger children. Your teenage youngsters may be impressed with the Mermaid who can be booked for kids birthday parties!
