It was a very good place to visit. My grandsons are 7 and 9 and they loved it. We really enjoyed the splash pad for the kids, they played and we got to relax and watch.

Never knew there were so many fish in the world. Your visit here makes Sea World redundant. I was impressed with the size of the aquarium as I assumed Tampa would not have such a good facility.

The Aquarium was fun. Was quite crowded, but everyone kept moving. Wasn't as nice as the one in NC we went to several years back, but glad we went

It was wonderful, Grand kids loved it and so did we. A place to see.

Not as small as SeaLife Hannover/Germany but worth a trip to do. Don't forget to looks around the harbour area where the Aquarium has been built in. A good example for the new usage of old industrial waste land.

Never seen such an amount of different animals in one complex ! Awesome Aquarium ! Clean and perfect tour round everything ! Highly recommended !!

I loved the aquarium, especially the water park. ..I wish there were more activities than the waste spots though. Maybe a slide upgrade.

Our guest enjoyed the marine exhibits and the day was very enjoyable. I know from previous visits with grandchildren that the aquarium is a very good day of learning and enjoyment.

The aquarium was pretty dull as most of it was closed. Only good thing was meeting a penguin in the lobby. I expected much more from an aquarium in Florida, so I was very disappointed, thus the rating.
