What an absolutely educational outing! I was totally taken a back by the strong message which was demonstrated not just by the dolfin show but the seal show as well by keeping our ocean clean! Well done to all the people involved!

Even on a cool and cloudy day, it's fun to meander thru the stores and restaurants, rides and walkways, aquarium and beachfront. Like any other place, stay safe and constantly be aware of your surroundings.
