At Kelly Tarlton’s SEA LIFE Aquarium there is over 30 exhibits and more than 80 different species.

Love those penguins, they are just so impressive. Didn't see any from happy feet but they did look good. The aquarium has a lot in it, very impressed. Go there early in the day, very popular can get crowded
