  • Great attraction. Has been upgraded since my last visit. Kids loved it. Staff friendy and helpful. Meal prices not outrageous either.
  • I hadn't been here for many years so I was keen to see the if the place was as good as I remembered. This time I went with my wife and lil 1 year old, thinking my bubba would be old enough to enjoy the aquarium. I wasn't wrong - my lil bub was wide eyed from exhibit to exhibit. Taking in giant fish, lobsters, sharks, sting rays and the dugong. One thing worth noting is school teachers get in free, avoiding the $42 adult entry.
  • The aquarium it's big and has a lot to see. I recommend 1 hours and half to be able to see everything. I love the biggest tank in the end. Just beautiful. I tried the Glass Bottom Boat and it was fun to feed the fishes. Great to go with friends and family.
  • My daughter loves this place! She loves looking at the "dory" and "nemo" fishes. We have come here 3 times in the past month. It can get really crowded on weekends.
  • I have not been to the Aquarium in years, so I was really looking forward to the visit. Thankfully we had a free ticket so only have to purchase one adult ticket, which was $40 - which is over priced. We walked in and the fish tanks early on at too small and too few, it was hard to get in close as a lot of people want to check them out. The walkways under the tanks are nice, but tight when busy as well. It feels like they are trying to renovate or modify the site, which is letting down the visitors - plus charging way to much money. It is not worth visiting anymore.
