  • Nice little aquarium, never saw the baby turtles as they were doing renovations . The mermaid is a big scary electronic model . Seahorses were the best .  more »
  • Just off the end of the road ten minutes from Cape Panwa hotel you will find a large car and bike park and the entrance to the aquarium. It is 180 baht to enter once inside some nice exhibits some do ...  more »
  • Dirty, poorly equipped and just a big disappointment. No idea what they do with the admission fees. On the positive side, they do take care of rescued turtles. The day I was there I saw staff burying ...  more »

  • The aquarium itself was okay. The animals are well taken care of and the tanks are clean. The surrounding displays are older and need some work and the lighting could be better. I believe they do good work here just need a face lift in some places.
  • Nice detour from the sunny and hot beaches. Yes, the tanks seem somewhat on the small side, but the overall look and feel is that the place is well maintained. From my own point of view the biggest negative was the early closing time.
  • Have had many visits to this place and always good value for money. The attraction is generally well maintained and the research center on site does some great environmental work. Unfortunately there is a shop at the exit which although not too expensive, if you have kids it's hard to avoid shopping for overpriced gifts and snacks.
  • We took a cab here and it was a pleasure to kill 2 hours here looking at the sea life and exhibits. The aquarium seems a bit worn. The moving stairs under the largest tank wasn't working, but it was still nice to take a long stroll under the tank. The most notable parts of the aquarium and the sea horses and the giant grouper. Although small, it's relaxed atmosphere was nice. There's also an excellent gift shop before your exit with reasonably prices gifts and snacks. I paid 20 baht for an ice pop.
  • The place is pretty good! The dorm show is not what you expect, it's not good! The rest of the place is fun, it's not world class but it's a good pitstop! You can get some great pictures but the reflection of the lights around makes it a challenge!
