  • Good for an educational trip. I am personally a killer whales lover, therefor I am able to spend the whole day sitting in the middle / front of the cover to look at them the whole day. There are also ...  more »
  • An interesting way to spend a morning touring a Japanese ice breaker that completed many expeditions to Antarctica. There is also an observatory and aquarium.  more »
  • I went for the first time on a trip in the spring. Killer whale show I went. Good bleed showing the killer whale, Orca's show was a little disappointing, but. Dolphin Show is great.

  • MUST CHECK for dolphin lovers!!! You can enjoy the show either on the open-air terrace seating area or under-water seating space. I accidentally sat indoor for underwater part, but it's similarly fun :D
  • Great Aquarium. Nice dolphin show. Sardine Tornado show is quite relaxing. Nice place for a family or couple to spend the day. And there's a Red Lobster nearby!
  • A bit pricy but worth it. I bought a ticket that is in combination with the Observatory and other nearby museums. Very big place to learn and watch marine animals. It will take you at least 3 hours to really visit and stroll along each exhibit. I do hope that they stay away from making these animals do tricks.
  • This aquarium supports animal cruelty. Thers dolphins come from the Taiji slaughter cover where only the "pretty" dolphins are picked. The rest of the dolphins watch their families be slaughtered. Please don't support this aquarium.
  • Awesome. You can see Orcas, Belugas and dolphins up close both from above water or through huge Windows from below. Do not miss.
