  • Get heard. Was compared to other large aquariums, dolphin shows are not the Sea Otter was compensated. Shell went 13:00 meal time, up to the ground two feet stand, or applause, ended up eating dunk to put bucket, was surprised by the wisdom.

  • I love by saying Japan's large aquarium Aquarium is really looking forward to was. Aquarium here's how long to I turned sideways. I was impressed because no room is divided into different zones, manatees and dugongs are seen on TV other than that. Cute body and swim. I was surprisingly's eyes. Particularly manatees here watched a lot, I'm aware of a great little more scary, I thought I would. Personally I have liked to Badger. Dolphins playing with a soccer ball, it was interesting. Elderly people where everyone enjoyed the family is recommended.

  • My husband and I are dugong lovers. We really enjoyed visiting Serena the dugong as well as seeing a variety of other sea creatures. We went on a weekday so not many visitors and there were lots of ph...  more »

  • Nice cruise around the Island to get here. I went in the autumn so it was quite cold and windy. The only disappointment was that I waited all day to interact with the dolphins but was only allowed "one touch". The staff I met were too robotic, especially working with animals. But saying that I feel bad for the animals caged up in narrow spaces made to entertain us, I hope one day they can be set free, quite narrow pool.
  • Loved it. So many “strange” animals and close interactions with some of them, especially the Walrus! Love to see all the feeding time as well.
  • HUGE aquarium with thousands of different fish and other aquatic animals (capybera and jungle cats??) on display. Great dine-in restaurant and facilities too. Conveniently located a short walk from the centre of the city (or even better hire a municipal bike from the government office across the road from the train station and ride along the river to / from it)
  • The Aquarium is well organized with lots of interesting stuff but a bit old. Good for family visits with kids to spend a day there.
  • The aquarium is big. We spent almost 4 hours here. We enjoyed 2 animal shows, the seal and the walrus. It was a lot of fun!
