This is by far the most impressive shark tunnel I've seen yet! Also the stingrays and horseshoe crabs are cool too! Well worth the money!

Great variety of fish/animal life. Very friendly employee give talks in various areas (rays, sharks, etc...). The tunnel is very cool. Give it a go! :) I didn't do the extra behind the scenes tour (for extra $) but it looked cool. Not enough time.
