  • This is where you take the kids! Great rainy day activity. And then you can watch the cod fisherman cut things up and taunt the seagulls. This is a small exhibit hall with 30 tanks to look at of vario...  read more »
  • Interesting aquarium. Great for small kids. Readonale admission price. Only drawback is it's a small place and they can pack a lot of people in.
  • Not going to lie, one of the most fun bits is squeegeeing off the condensation on the tanks to see the animals! Everyone gets their own squeegee. The animals are mostly caught in the spring and released in the fall, except for the fancy lobsters. It was a neat stop, but I certainly wouldn't anticipate it taking more than an hour to go through.
  • A small aquarium that provide a hands on experience with some of the marine life in Nfld. The staff helped get the kids engaged with the touch pools. The setting in Petty Harbour really adds to the character of the aquarium as well. The facility is quite small and gets crowded very quickly. The size of the facility also limits how much time you can spend there - the average visit of 40 min to 1.5hrs on the web site only applies if they are doing a demonstration of some sort during your visit.
  • Small but surprisingly fun for small kids. The touch tanks are filled with starfish and hermit crabs. I wasn't expecting much from the look of the place when you walk in the door but we really enjoyed it. Quite small, don't plan to spend much more than half an hour.
  • Our kids and us loved it. They have all local marine animals that you can see and touch. After take a walk in the harbor, very interesting place to see. We arrived in the morning directly from overnight ferry. Summer 2015.
