  • You are very mistaken if you think this place is just another "Ocean Park". The place is totally dedicated to marine life and the exhibitions are carefully designed. The only drawback is the seemingly...  more »
  • 我們來到的時候剛好碰到虎鯨表演時間,現場有大螢幕同時直播,表演很精彩,虎鯨很聰明! 水族館還有白鯨,企鵝,海豚, 海龜等等, 非常適合帶小朋友來。  more »
  • Loved seeing the beluga training and the penguins being fed; worth a visit for those two things alone. Dolphin show was cute (replays got a little irritating after a while!) Enjoyable and educational.  more »

  • 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.
