Great aquarium. I've been to many of the great coastal aquariums across the country and this one is excellent and is a front runner for best in the nation, IMO. The MOTE aquarium had good displays that were multi generational (kids and adults alike could enjoy). I liked the separate manatee exhibit as well. More simple than several aquariums out there, but the focused exhibits keep you from turning a single day adventure into a 2 day adventure. I put this tops with the Monterrey Bay, Duluth (Lake Superior) and Baltimore National Aquariums.
