They have such an amazing array of sea and river creatures, the kids were both entranced and excited, pointing at various colorful or strange-looking animals. However, the main attraction of the Atlantic City Aquarium is definitely the Live diver Feeding Show. How a girl can get inside a tank and feed sharks, dogfish and rays by hand I will understand. But I have to admit, it was an amazing thing to see that.

There are also boat rides and city cruises available, more info at the Atlantic City Marina.
