We asked a guide at the pier how to get to the aquarium and she very helpfully told us it was within walking distance. She also handed us some coupons for a discount off the admission. We walked to the aquarium stopping to take pictures along the way. The aquarium is pretty small but has a good selection of animals. We saw sharks, sting rays, turtles, tropical fish, jellyfish, eels, sea horses, and much more. This is a great excursion for kids and our 4 year old loved it. The aquarium focuses heavily on conservation, education, and rescue and several of the animals have an associated story. There was a poor rescued sea turtle that was permanently tilted sideways because his shell was cracked and he had an injured flipper. They allowed the kids to touch the sharks if they wanted. The tour guide held the shark securely for safety reasons. I did my souvenir shopping in the attached gift shop. They had a great selection, reasonable prices, and the proceeds benefit the aquarium.

Small but inexpensive way to kill an hour. We purchased a combo ticket that got us the aquarium, trolly tour and the shipwreck museum. $48. Sadly we didn't get to ride the trolly much as we were busy wandering on our own.
