Fodor's Review

Get up-close-and-personal with more than 7,000 creatures at this waterfront attraction, where exhibits invite you to journey through distinctive habitats. Step into the Mountain Forest and find water splashing over a rocky gorge as river otters play. Enter the open-air Saltmarsh Aviary to feed stingrays and view herons, diamondback terrapins, and puffer fish. And gaze in awe at the two-story, 385,000-gallon Great Ocean Tank, home to sharks, jellyfish, and a loggerhead sea turtle. Kids love the Touch Tank and the 4-D Theater that shows films with special effects such as wind gusts and splashes of water. Tours of the Sea Turtle Hospital are well worth the extra $10.
