The Oceanarium is part of the marine biological Centre on Phuket Center trains students to research the marine flora and fauna, protection of endangered species here presents a large variety of fish of the Andaman Sea from those you can eat up those who gladly eat you ... Eels, crabs, sharks, jellyfish. catfish, fish-stones (borodavchatki) with poisonous thorns, surgeon fish, fish-knife, Cardinal fish, lionfish, Leopard scat ... All does not list ... In aquariums recreated natural habitats of sea inhabitants Wednesday: sandy beaches, mangroves, rocky cliffs, coral reefs. On the interactive screens provide information about each obitatele (in Thai and English). In the center of the Aquarium 10 meter long transparent tunnel, passing under them, you can see over your head float redfish, shark, etc.. At the exit of the most terrific-8 huge, human growth, fish. This giant gruppery, who live in the Aquarium for more than 20 years! Their weight is around 110 kg! If you visit the aquarium in the Saturday or Sunday, you can see a demonstrative feeding sharks and stingrays. The price of tickets may amounted to 160 baht. Opening hours from 8.30 to 16.30.

  • It's pretty decent for a small island aquarium, costs 180 baht for foreigners. Takes about 30 min to finish the main aquarium exhibits. It is slightly dated but is still a good place to bring kids of all ages. Has a leopard shark and a good number of Goliath mouth groupers.
  • A good place to go with kids! Though far away from the town centre, but the entrance fee is cheap enough to spend 2-3hours there. Not a big place, have some species of fish and ocean lives. They have a souvenir shop with their branded dolls, tees, and some small items. But still suggest the theme park can print more their brand on their items that people may buy more for memorise.
  • Its a small but very well put together aquarium. About 40 small tanks and two large ones with some nice exhibits. Great way to learn about local sea life. There are some good scenic viewpoints and restaurants nearby so if you travel to this area plan to stay a bit. Its at the very far edge of the island in a not so touristy area.
  • Beautiful facility. Many unique species of sea life! Even experienced having micro fish tickle our toes in a tank of water, for 20 minutes!
  • Worth its money. Don't expect too much, though. Good selection of fishes. Explanations in Thai and a little English.
