It was so informative and relaxing seeing and learning about the world around us. Loved how well the aquarium was laid out and the emphasis on Florida’s wetlands.

Loved it!

Loved our experience! Favorite part was that huge fish “neighborhood” just sit there and wait for a crowd to move on and the music, the view into their day is the best way to end the day.
Good visit
