  • small aquarium badly maintained (dead fish in some Aquarium..), I read that it has been renovated in 2015! No or little explanation other than those of the guide during the "meal" of the residents of the great reservoir.l' place does not correspond to what we can expect in view of the description on the site (no corals or anemones..). A bit expensive entry in terms of the time of visit.

  • Unquestionably, this aquarium cannot be part of those who allow the visitor to complete the tour with a real satisfaction. This isn't for lack of special interest with the "basin to predators", and to present a nice range of aquatic wildlife. But we're still hungry...

  • First things first, this is a small venture which cannot be compared with a big city aquarium. However Richard is a charming knowledgeable host with a passion for the aquarium. The fish which are all ...  more »

  • A very basic aquarium which can be visited if you have kids and nothing else to do on the island. Tickets are on the higher side. Parking is free and they do have a small stall for refreshments within the campus. Souvenir shop is just before the exit. Bon Voyage.
  • Nice fishes but only few tanks to watch + pool with turtle and small sharks. BE CAREFUL! All the pics in google with tunnel aquarium are fake! There is no tunnel aquarium, no interactions no attractions like this!!
  • Good place to take kids. They have a large fish tank which has tortoise, small sharks and lots of other varieties of fish. There is an entry fee which is common for locals and tourists.
  • Tickets very expensive and not soo many fishes . It's only a 10 minutes visit for Rs 300 rupees. They are doing just business. I don't suggest any one to go there.better you take a glass bottom boat ride it's much more better.
  • Terrible. Overpriced at Rs300 and had nothing more than a few fish tanks. Can see more at a pet shop forfree
