  • Do a good deed while discovering, it is possible to Picton! Ideally take the guided tour to learn more. Ideal if it's not beautiful, but do not expect a large aquarium, it's small. After the notes support their action!

  • Cute aquarium in Picton, one of the few interesting things to visit in the small town. Was a bit pricy for what it had offered, but you had unlimited re-entry for the day. Had few cute blue penguins on exhibit.
  • Compared to a few other things I did with my partner when we were in Picton, this was the most expensive. I understand there is the cost of taking care of animals but it wasn't worth the money. The disgusting stench that greets you when you first go in is something else. The whole place needs a full clean & upgrade. There isn't enough space for the all the turtles to rest out of water. Only 4 could fit, and I felt so sorry for number 4 having to keep trying to get into a spot where it wouldn't fall back into the water. The 2 penguins looked depressed and didn't have much room to swim or to move around on some up turned boat. Didn't see any sea horses. Was such a shame
  • During a trip with so many phenomenal stops, this one fell a bit short. They do good work, and there were interesting things to see... but for the price of admission compared to other attractions we visited in New Zealand, this one was only just okay.
  • I formative and amusing tour guide. Friendly staff and wonderful exhibits.
  • Very expensive entry and not alot of exhibits. I would be okay if the admission were about half of what it is. The blue penguins are cute though.
