The admission for this is rather expensive, almost $17, with no discounts for seniors or students but the experience was eye popping, especially, the tunnel where sharks and other animals swim above your head. You get an amazing close up view of the animals often from an underwater viewpoint. There is also a pool where you can touch manta rays and other creatures – if you dare. At the beginning, they talk your photo which they try to sell you at the end of your visit and there's also a souvenir shop at the end. In other words, this is a very touristy place. The admission includes an audio guide and you walk in one continuous direction from start to end so you won't get lost following the guide. You can linger as long as you like at any spot. Since none of our group lives near an aquarium, this was a unique experience for most of us.
