Jacob's Review:
     They have these really cool old fashioned boats, and the bottom is part glass - so you can see into the lake! There are giant catfish - white and black ones! And a big underwater thing that you can go in and see divers in the water!!
  The Aquarena is a large lake feed by underwater pressure springs. They have an aquarium that features over 7 endangered species. They also have a swamp walk which is a floating bridge in the middle of a swamp habitat for birds, fish, and turtles (I saw 4 turtles when I was there). The river boat there last attraction is a boat that has a glass bottom which allows you to see under the water.


Dad's Notes:
   This is the source of the San Marcos River, a huge spring fed river. Since it is spring fed the water is crystal clear and the glass bottom boats and submarine theater are very cool! Divers can usually be seen on the weekends! There are special programs and group trip special events!
