  • Incredible place to visit. Prime location with a reasonable entry fee, very welcoming and helpful staff. The aquarium seemed never-ending with all the things to see and do, with a large amount of very interesting attractions. Very good photo opportunities and loads of fun for all ages. Penguin boat ride was a very nice touch.
  • Going to a place like this specially on a weekend you would consider it to be quite hectic, and indeed it was. Full of children and lots of noise, but overall the experience wasn’t marred too much by this. I would say that the manatee was the highlight, as well as the penguins. The way this place presents its animals and fish is quite amazing. I recommend going when it’s not too busy, say during the week day that is not on a school holiday.
  • This was one of the highlights of my holiday. I see bad reviews on here maybe because too many people go in afternoon. The key is to go to places like this as soon as they open and you able to enjoy the full experience without a crowd. The tunnels were amazing with the sharks swimming over you. I was able to take videos of them swimming over me. The penguin boat ride was awesome to. The online booking that cost $75 for 4 attractions was cheap as I had more money to spend at all the gift shops.
  • Amazing place to see. Must visit. If you're a nature lover, specially aqua life. It has penguins, sharks, Ray fish, Dugong(sea cow) named Pig. One should carry a light jacket with themselves because temperature inside is low, specially in the area where they have kept penguins. A whole day could be spend there if you are interested in sea creatures. There's a segment dedicated to sea horse breeding.
  • A really good Aquarium to see sea animals with your family. If you have an online ticket you can get through quick. It was a fun experience for my whole family. My favourite parts was the penguin boat ride and in the underground tunnel like thing were you can see the sharks etc. swim past.
