We saw everything in just under 2 hours. As an adult, I had a pretty fun time. I wish they had more staff to overlook and give interesting explanations of what in the world we were touching. The place was crowded with little kids and field trippers. These otter guys were interesting. They were cleaning their butts and that required them to be in ball form which meant they had to roll in the water.
It was just an endless cycle of rolling and licking their butts. The sea otters, seals, and octopus were super adorable. They were the main and biggest highlights even though their enclosure was boring. Not much decor in the outdoor tanks.
The gift shop was fun. Everything was adorable. It was full of silly fish puns. The merch and kid toys were scientific and entertaining. Summary: Is it worth a visit full price?

The biggest and few positive was being able to sit, relax, and watch the blue waters. Also, how legendary is this shot we took?!

I recommend making a 2-day event to explore just this zoo. My feet were pretty much dead at the end of a 6-hour waltz but I still had a ton of fun.
The animals get ample room and their enclosures are full of interesting things beautifully set out with care and detail. It looks pretty accurate to me besides the wall speakers haha. Cynthia at the petting zoo with the goat that wanted to be pet by her. Most of the farm animals were done for the day.
The only small con is they need more places to eat and more gift shops. Take advantage of impulse buyers as a business!
