Feeding the seals was fantastic. The aquarium is small, but they have a diverse set of creatures. I loved seeing three octopus! There is a also a touch pond. Definitely will be making this a tradition. Squashed pennies in their gift shop too!

The seals are what makes the place awesome. The touch tanks are nice and easily reachable. Price to get in is fair price
