This aquarium is pretty nice and fun for kids. It is conveniently located right on the point pleasant boardwalk which makes it easy to get to and a nice indoor retreat away from the beach. The penguins are adorable and really fun to watch. I would recommend especially if you have younger kids.

It would seem that jenkinson's owns point pleasant beach since they have so many places down there. Well tis is another one. the nice ting about this place is that it is a rarity. The next closest aquarium is pretty far away. They have fish, crocodiles and many other sea creatures. My favorite area is the penguins. They are so cute and interesting to watch and the kids love them.

My kids love this aquarium because its not too big. It has just the right amount of sea creatures and also seals, alligators and penguins. There is also a petting tank and some parrots on the upper floor. Only takes an hour or so to get through but you definately wont lose your kids in here.

It is definetly small but there is enough to keep toddlers and yourger children occupied for at least an hour. My kids love the upstairs where you can touch certain creatures and they love the little monkeys upstairs as well. We have gone on a few class/recreation center trips there and were never disappointed. The best part is that it is on the boardwalk with lots of things to do.

PROS: on the boardwalk with lots to do with the beach right there
CONS: small aquarium which can get crowded easily

Stop by if you are in Point Pleasant and have some time to kill but do not go out of your way to see it. Probably a good thing to do once especially with little kids that are into marine life or nature. I have never seen the feedings but I have pet a shark there and kids get so excited doing it. Like everything on the boardwalk they are on the expensive side but probalby worth it one time.

The aquarium is small and situated on two floors. They have sharks, penguins, seals, a variety of fish and other sea creatures as well as parrots. The animal feedings are fun to watch and days and times are posted. You can leave and re-enter by showing your hand stamp. It's expensive to get in ($8 per adult and $5 per kid over 2). The staff are not always knowledgable about the animals. Today they misled us twice regarding scheduled program times.

PROS: Great for small children, esp. on rainy or cold day
CONS: Expensive for the size of the place
