  • Apart from having to queue to get in, we really enjoyed our trip here. There are lots of tanks with various different varieties of fish life in. We saw the octopus moving across the front glass of it'...  more »
  • 9 adults and 6 kids descended on here on a wet and windy summers day. Great you can go round with a buggy and you don't have to park it. Enough to see for big kids and little kids. Would recommend.  more »

  • Quite expensive for tickets and it doesn't take long to go round. That said, the big centrepiece with sharks, a big eel, a sting ray and sea turtle is very impressive and you should take your time enjoying it. Been a couple of times now as kids enjoy it and it was good for a rainy day.
  • Short and sweet. It was a lovely place with much to offer. Perfect start for a day out, followed by a walk around Newquay beach and shops.
  • Small aquarium but lots to see. Giant sea turtle and octopus highlights for us. Kids enjoyed searching for the gold coins hidden in the tanks
  • Brilliant aquarium.well set out tanks and healthy looking seaside. Staff are friendly and well informed. When we went, an Easter egg hunt was created which was brilliant. The octopus tank was our highlight.
  • Well presented but not as good as other centers. All over very quickly.
