You can virtually travel to the Indo-Pacific Barrier Reef, or “California” to see the Sea Lions or even “Africa” to hang out with some very cool penguins. You can also make friends with some piranha and jelly fish, and beluga whales or otters from the friendlier set. These are just a few of their incredible exhibits you can explore.
