  • This is a small, interesting aquarium that you can visit in less than 45 minutes. Don't expect to see reef fish exhibits: this aquarium highlights the local aquatic life on the Namibian coast. A delightful visit well-worth the price of admission!
  • Basic aquarium, but a wonderful experience! We really enjoyed it and there is a lot to see. There is a large aquarium with a tunnel going through it, which was pretty cool and provided a closer look at all of the pretty fishies. Was a great photo opportunity too. At N$10 per adult and N$5 per child, entrance is practically free. Definitely a must visit if you have kids. We parked at the jetty and strolled down to the aquarium, which added to the experience.
  • The place is small and is not alot of different aquatic fish that are found there. My expectations were too high I guess But otherwise is the best place to go when you feel down, the feeling of therapy by nature is rejuvenating.
  • Nice aquarium in swakopmund.its not that much big. Few tanks are there. But you can enjoy it. Entrance fee around 10-30 N$.improvement required.
  • It holds my Childhood I love it for that,But it has lost its appeal
