  • This is the top entertainment. Could have been bigger, but is constantly in development. Have fun for the whole family. A bit expensive at both the entrance and the food in the Café. But the children enjoying themselves. Make sure to get the feed!

  • A Brilliant Aquarium which is definitely one of both best I have been too. All the water is taken from Fjords or the Sea and so the effect of the ocean is captured perfectly. There lighting conditions are also replicated so the fish feel as if they are at home. My only suggestion would be to make the Penguin pen larger. I lived in the Falklands amongst thousands of Penguins and I feel the enclosure could have been more "natural"
  • Technically it is possible to walk there from the downtown, though there is public transportation and the tourist "hop on / off" bus that will take you there. Unlike other aquariums, the Atlantic Sea Park focuses on local sea creatures, so you're not going to see a huge variety of fish, but it's very well built and structured with an hour or two of things to see at minimum, including seals, and hands-on crab, starfish, and anemone interaction for the kids.
  • Great place, especially for kids. There is an activity room for learning all about the sea life!
  • Great aquarium! Lots of stuff to do, nice staff and decent prices.
  • A great aquarium. Nice shows, from feeding to diving, nice diversity and outdoors and a good price tag. A little bit small but overall a very enjoyable experience.
