Excellent choice! Colorful and friendly butterflies everywhere! Gift shop has many good choices. We spent about an hour there and I would suggest the Southernmost Beach Resort for breakfast beforehand and then a short walk to the Southernmost Point afterwards. We went about 930, No line, and when we came out, the line was long. Worth the visit!

Fun, but not a huge variety of aquatic life. However, it was still a pretty good experience and the virtual tours were kinda entertaining.

It's a small aquarium. When I was there there wasn't much going on, I liked it.

It was a cool tour with humor and charm! We really liked it 🤗
