  • There are lot of new fishes from deep sea in all over world and birds. In every tank They have written about the fish in English and Sinhala languages.  more »
  • First of all, it is far when we have to go to the center of Colombo. Otherwise, the fish are beautiful and varied, but however the environment is rather deplorable. It is dirty, not maintained. It's a shame because there are potential! My son loved discovering all these fish!

  • A privately owned aquarium + bird park + leisure park. main attraction is the fish which are bought all over from the world. Lighting is not appropriate and some tanks are really small for the fish they contain. General maintenance seems to be below average. Pricing is reasonable and you only have to buy tickets for entrance. a Mini under water tunnel , a bird park and a small kid's play area is there. Parking and rest areas could be a issue if you visit on a crowded time (which might be a rare occasion). Bird cages are covered with very small-holed nets, hence birds can't be seen clearly. (perhaps due to locals feeding the birds unnecessary things) Must see if you have time. takes about 3 to 4 hours to enjoy.
  • It's a very nice collection of aquarium fish. Many fish tanks with different types and kinds of fresh water fish as well as sea fish from all around the globe. Full of colourful, strange, bizarre, fish and other sea and fresh water creatures. Some tanks are breathtaking that you can't take your eyes off them. The arrangements and layout also is very good. A play ground for kids and a Food outlet is inside. There are some varieties of beautiful birds too. But all the cages are made of double layers of iron nets making it so hard to see through. Anyway it really is a nice experience spending few hours there.
  • It’s a first time visit to the water world. An easy access from Colombo-Kandy road from Kelani. Wonderful place for a kids and adults too. This place is see a variety of fish but not birds. Entry for adult is 280/-, children 180/- & Foreigner 400/-. Parking available for 10-15 vehicle free of charge. There are space for lunch, I will recommend to take a lunch and water with you. Other snacks you buy from the canteen.
  • One of the better places in the outskirts of Colombo for some animal watching and relaxing. Has a large aquarium with plenty of fishes of different and many variety. The underwater tunnel is unique and first time for Sri Lanka. People had to travel to Singapore to experience this before. Has a large collection of exotic birds as well. Overall a nice place to take kids to. Ticket price is slightly high compared to the National Zoo for example.
  • Nice place within a short drive from Colombo. Depending on your enthusiasm towards birds and aquatic creatures, you may be able to spend 3-4hrs. Last time I was here, few years back it had way more attractions. Clearly it has not been maintained well.
