Fostering Curiosity of Marine Life

Get a hands-on learning experience with enthusiastic staff. In an 800-square-foot facility within a retired fish processing plant, touch tanks and thirty beautiful exhibits showcase the creatures.

Catch and Release

The best part about the Mini Aquarium is that the animals are returned to the ocean from which they were collected. As you assist us in returning the animals to the sea, bid a fond farewell to our marine friends. It’s the ideal way to cap off another season of aquatic awesomeness.
