  • That whale sharks are worth a look, but went to the GW who many seemed to be worth far further afield, too. Sometimes we got to the 8:00 was not the extraordinary crowded parking lot waiting to 11:00 in.

  • I think the General selling whale sharks. So anyway I think whale sharks images of Okinawa "beauty from the sea" was not. But really selling here in the dolphin show. More Dolphin Aquarium has been configured in the bottlenose dolphin, here are five all form (smaller and faster), so now it's dolphin. At the height of the jump I thought you have 5 head enough to impress once again guaranteed that.

  • The aquarium is not that big and its a little bit out of the way so do bear that in mind if you're thinking of visiting. That said, there was enough to see and do to keep our kids entertained includin...  more »

  • It had some rain in the morning but the performance of penguins was still be operated. Its look interested. Slot of sea creatures are presented here including a very big salamander. It will be better if go on a sunny day when you could observe the dolphins performance both outside and inside of the aquarium. The performance of dolphin should not be missed here. It will be better if the managers could reorganize the pools and aquarium since they are quite old and not so effectively placed. Also, the road to reach the aquarium which is placed in an island is very beautiful on sunshine or at dawn.
  • A bit run down, partially closed due to renovation. Decent variety but generally uninspiring.
  • Nice Place with lot of fun stuff for children...
  • Better than expected. Do not miss the dolphin show.
  • I love the whale and the dolphine show.
