I think they are making money off of Winter. I think they are a vet and that they need to stop promoting it as an aquarium. I think it is great that they can save animals and get them back into nature but they don't teach you anything. Winter is cool and everything but they never have her tail on her. You are very lucky to see her swim with it. I was very disappointed as was my 12 year old step daughter who loves the movie.
Do not expect a marine aquarium or anything close to Sea World. This is a clinic for sick and injured sea animals and that is what you will see. They really need to add more aquarium space for the animals.
However, the staff and facility do a good job of rehabilitaing sea life and most of it is returned back to the wild once it is healthy enough.
