"Educational cool place!"

We checked this place and enjoyed the visit. It was educational for our daughters. They saw a crayfish/lobster feeding. The aquarium has a good variety of sea life and the lay out of the place was easy especially for a toddler. It's a great place!

"Just so-so"

As noted by other reviewers, Sea Life is kind of expensive for what they offer. There are some nice exhibits but not a lot of them. Might be best suited for young children.

"way overpriced"

Very nice aquarium! The Behind-the-scenes tour is NOT included with your ticket , but Austin, out guide was very informative. We went through the aquarium in 40 minites, then did the behind the scenes tour in 30. It was quite busy with homeschool/daycare. The desk staff told us to wait until after the "daycares/schools" left to take our paid tour, I don't think we should have had to wait 2-3 hours for that, It is definitly not worth the hour drive to get to sealife.

We had a great time at sea life with our daughter! She loved all the different sea life and touching the star fish! It would be nicer if the price was a little cheaper considering the aquarium isn't that big. But overall we had a blast!

Small but we totally enjoyed ourselves. Lots of different fish and areas to view at different angles. Some looked liked you were in there with the fish.
