    This is a very small aquarium but they pack a lot in and the kids loved it. It covers the story of the local waterways from stream to sea and the staff were friendly and informative.  more »

    Lovely quaint little Aquarium with lots of information about the fish they have and a nice little quiz for children. There aren't that many tanks and it can get a little squashed when it gets busy but...  more »

  • Great little aquarium visit as many times you like on your day ticket... my four year old loved it she really enjoyed the trails and reading about and seeing all of the sea life. Great to see species relative to the area visited ... accommodating staff very friendly and knowledgeable. My little girl wanted to revisit the following day!!!
  • A nice little local attraction. Only took 20mins to look round so not sure price reflects. While the gentlemen who looked after the fish was pleasant and informative the lady on admissions was quite rude in answering the telephone in front of paying customers who had been queing paitently. Was tempted to walk out if i hadn't of had my son with me
  • Very polite and nice staff and despite how tiny it is its still worth visiting. A small aquarium with a cafe on top and outside at the sea front.
  • Nice little plaice...! The staff are great and the fish were very relaxing to look at. When I heard that the fish where from the local Devon, I thought it was a nice touch.. really liked the colourful lobster & friendly cuttlefish! Also.. very cheap attraction, would recommend if visiting north Deven Will & Lekhana
  • My favourite thing about it is the sting rays. I think it's spectacular. I like the staff.
