Those cuttlefish get around in the most hypnotizing way.

It's not every day that you get to see a brown banded bamboo shark laying an egg case in our shark and ray touch tank!

Some of the  baby seahorses have graduated to the adult tank! Check in with the lined seahorses. 
It takes about 9 months for baby lined seahorses to grow to full size. So as you can see, these seahorses born this past September are already well on their way to adulthood. Several weeks ago they graduated to adult food — mysid shrimp — and a few are large enough to go into the larger tank!

The aquarists that care for the animals in our Armored and Venomous exhibit use kevlar gloves and always have a buddy nearby anytime they have to work in this tank. #fish #handlewithcare #video

We just added 16 common cuttlefish to the cuttlefish exhibit. Caution! They are extremely adorable.
But sometimes you might have to exercise your powers of observation to see these little guys. The juveniles often settle into different nooks and burrowed into the sand throughout the exhibit. We've pointed out just a few of them in this handy GIFs. These little guys have had quite the journey, ...

See some of the fascinating features that went into the brand new octopus habitat.
Our newest exhibit is beautiful to behold. Visitors have been wonderstruck by the diversity of species, the colors, and the artistic elements, like the rock formations inside and the sculptural rails along the outside. You might be interested to know that as much care went into designing the ...

Today's blog post is chock full of cool video of cuttlefish eating — in fast motion and regular. Check it out!
A beautiful broadclub cuttlefish is currently stalking our cuttlefish exhibit. It is fed an assortment of seafoods, including live crabs now and then. Recently a staff member had their phone recording video during afternoon snack. Take a look at this cool behind-the-scenes video!

A giant glass tank spiraled by a multilevel walkway is the main draw at this waterfront attraction.- Google
"Helpful staff, the aquarium was great to see and the kids loved it all."
"Penguin Exhibit was stellar, giant tank pleased me."

This is a great place to visit. It comprehends three floors with a big aquarium that goes from the bottom one to the top floor. There are areas were you can actually touch the animals, like jelly fish, starfish, rays, coral and sharks. The variety of species that can be seen it's also very good, with interesting facts about each of them being displayed. At last, in the gift shop you can found something for everybody, child or adult.

Where do i start? I gave it 1 star only because i couldn't give it a 0 or a negative score but believe me it was a negative experience!! The line to get in was rediculous however the lines inside were completely out of hand! Shoulder to shoulder and very uncomfortable; we couldn't even move!! The worst part of it though was it had to be 90 degrees inside..so hot we left after only half an hour! There has to be some kind of control implemented at the door to let people know and only allow people in as others leave... very disappointed and i will never go back!!

It's a nice Aquarium. There is a beautiful corral reef type tank that's in the center of the whole complex which goes up by four flours and holds many many fish. Beautiful to see all those fish in that space and cool to see the staff put on their wet suits and driving masks and get into the tank to feed those fish. Any kid would be in awe with this aquarium. I don't recommend bringing someone who gets worried about animal living space in captivity(a.k.a me) with you because they will ruin the awe that comes from seeing all these fish.

Very busy when I went on a monday. Not very expensive for the attraction itself but you also have to pay to park. Family fun but I went simply as a sea life enthusiast and there were too many people for my liking. Will have to go during an off season for sure. Lots of tourists!

I love this place. The staff are knowledgeable and for the most part seem to love their job (how couldn't they?). My mild nitpick is that I wish some of the exhibits were better-maintained. Some seemed rather dirty and I'd assume it's not very good for their health.

One word: penguins. Yes, it's a decent aquarium. The main giant tank is definitely a mesmerizing scene, though sadly, not entertaining enough for a one year old human toddler. I loved the area where I could "pet" the stingrays, and the outdoor seal exhibit is definitely a favorite.

Great aquarium, with an intuitive layout for both large and small groups. The main part of the aquarium has a central pillar which is one of the world's largest fish tanks, and branching off of it are multiple floors of separate tanks. The residents include piranhas, penguins, a set of extremely large turtles, electric eels, and seals! In terms of interactive education, the aquarium provides a plethora of demos on each floor, and includes a tidal pool manned by staff to answer all your aquatic queries. For lunch, you can either go to the cafeteria or step outside to walk about a mile to pretty much anywhere to eat. The entire building, food court and all, is wheelchair accessible and definitely deserves five stars. My single qualm with the place is its hours. Many times you find your outing to the place cut short due to closing time, but this too is justified, because the fish need specialized care too after all, and the marine biologists caring for them can't go back and forth between tourists and fish continuously. All in all, a great place for an outing even if you aren't a student.

Went this afternoon and it is indeed impressive. although not cheap at $27 per adult our under 3 yr old was free. staff were engaged, enigmatic and friendly and seapite the heat and previous day transatlantic travel, we all loved it. the gigantic centre, cylindrical tank stole the show.. until my daughter stroked the star fish - and later a ray. we walked from the hotel as previous reviews say parking is not great. we did see a large multi storey but it was busy and the car rental places seem to use it so if you are residing closeby / seaport area I would walk.
