  • Friendly staff, got to feed the mullets and hold a starfish. Reasonably priced & worth a visit.
  • Cute place with enthusiastic staff. You'll spend less than an hour here but it's worth stopping by.
  • Superb trip, we all loved it! Thank you to the host for a welcoming and interactive experience!
  • Hand feed mullet where else would you do that? Educational too.
  • Had a brilliant time here today with the children. Max (the owner) was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and amusing. The children loved the interaction with the Mullet and thoroughly enjoyed handling the star fish as well as having their photo taken with the enormous crab and lobster. Felt it was good value for money and we will certainly be back soon. Definitely recommend this lovely quirky aquarium on The Cobb!
