Really nice local aquarium, but not small or cheesy at all. Have some great displays. They have a seal show, huge shark tank, penguin, and lots of other fish and displays. They have video shows and tours. Kids love watching the seal shows. The ticket prices are good to considering what you're getting. Well worth taking the kids if your their in Point Pleasant.

You would never think that an Aquarium on the boardwalk would be interesting but this place is. They have a decent amount of different fish and wildlife. It’s a small place but they have enough to keep you busy for an hour or two. Parking is a little tight. If you go in the off season chances of finding a parking spot in their lot should be easier. But good luck during the summer. It is a two story place and there is no kid friendly elevator. What I saw were people leave their stroller on the first floor and walk their child up stairs With that said there is an elevator for those who are handicapped. But it’s tucked away by the stairs to go to the second floor. If there is one thing they could improve upon is to have people take strollers upstairs. Not sure how they would do it being the place is rather small.

Small but a pretty good aquarium. I didn't expect to see sharks, penguins and sea lions so that was a nice surprise and everything is set up well. Good location. My only pet peeve is that I felt think he could have been labeled better. I saw some sea life in tanks with no accompanying label a few times.

My wife and I visited the aquarium for the first time this summer. As aquariums go, this one is on the small side. It costs $25 per adult for all day admission, unless you are a veteran then the price is $24 per person. The aquarium is small and can be seen in about 30 minutes. The do have 2 snakes so if you're ophidophobic (fear of snakes) be warned. It's a great place for children to learn about the ocean and to be more conscious of the environment.

I took my daughters here. It's small but clean and set up so nice. I thought it was ten times better than the large Aquarium in Camden. My two girls had so much fun!
