  • The place is just one floor and few tanks of marine animals. Not worth standing in queue for so long.  more »
  • This aquarium was closed for a long period, supposedly to renovate and modernize it. The only significant enhancement is in the fees, which are now a ridiculous Rs 3,000 to Rs 5,000 for a still camera...  more »

  • This place has come up very nicely after its renovation really! It has more professional look now and ready to attract tourists! The entrance has a nice arch made of glass with variety of beautiful fish that makes us feel like we are getting inside a water tunnel! The sections of fish in fresh water and tropical fish is informative. The small museum with various sea shells and other items is very good! Few sought after species like Shark and Sea Snakes were missing though! Few windows did not have information about the fish there, the hall was crowded and noisy and there was no staff inside to manage it. Overall, it was a nice time in the aquarium, kids really enjoyed​ it!
  • After the renewation the aquarium has many new species of fishes and aquatic animals.They have rare species of fishes. Fresh water fish. Sea Water Fish. It takes about an hour to see the Aquarium. Entry timings 10 A.M. to 8 P.M. Tickets timings 10 A.M. to 5 P.M. Ticket Rates : Adult Rs.60, Child Rs.40 Photography not allowed. The most intriguing part of the aquarium was the innovative type of door fish tank which is made of glass and gives a feeling of being under water. In the new additions of fishes my favourite was jelly fish. The turtles were huge and creatures from sea life added to the rare collection. Overall a memorable experience.
  • You may think that jaws movie was shot here . I will be honest with you, no jaws movie was not shot here because the siE of tanks here very small hardly enough to fit a single fin of great white shark. Even, if there was such a huge fish in the aquarium, local fisherman would have cut it and sold it to people ready to buy fresh great white shark as it tastes just yummy. I would totally recommend this place for you and your kids if you bad knowledge of basic fishes. If you are smart enough and with a girlfriend , take a smart decision don't go out just stay home.
  • Well the last I visited this place was in the mid-80's. I expected it to be much better than what I saw back then. It is much better now however the degree of change is not as expected. The tunnel tank is at the entrance of the building restricting the movement of people into the building. No general guidelines on the movement of the crowed to ensure maximum viewing of the fishes.
  • Good for kids. Very few fishes to observe. No photography allowed. Only allowed to observe some fishes in small tanks. The entrance gate and the sea turtle are good.
