National Marine Aquarium Review

This excellent aquarium on the harbor presents aqueous environments, from a freshwater stream to a seawater wave tank to a huge "shark theater." Not to be missed is the extensive collection of sea horses, part of an important breeding program, and the chance to walk under sharks in the Mediterranean tank. Feeding times are fun for the kids, and Waves café, with its harbor views, makes a good spot for a rest and refreshment.
