  • this is an absolute rip off. No excitement, just crowds ambling about. Staff feeding the seals in the corner where not everyone can see them. Would have been much better at the other corner. Shop exto...  more »
  • What a rip off! Lucky I got my son in free with spree voucher but was £15 for myself . Was in and out within an hour as very little to see. Cafe awful cost £8.50 for kids lunch box and a packet of cri...  more »

  • You must visit! Such an amazing place to spend an afternoon. Interactive talks and shows by friendly and knowledgeable team members ( thank you Daniel and Keith). Fascinating creatures on show in great surroundings. Go.. meet Stella the mischievous ray and look for Patch the 45 stone shark. Have a close encounter with Sam the corn snake and tickle a starfish before you go home. Fantastic experience, thanks guys!
  • Absolute rip off. £36 for myself, grandson and his friend to get in. Took 20mins to see everything and that was day out. Went to cafe got two kids pizza meals (frozen pizza) with chips and chip roll for myself £21 for that. Couldn't eat it it was so disgusting. Kids also left theirs. Bought them a tub of ice cream one scoop in tub and each tub cost £3.50 total £7.00 and again it was inedible. This has to be the WORST place for a day out EVER. We will never be back. Looks great in the adverts just shows how deceiving an advert can be. Please DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY GOING HERE. Filthy as well and had a very weird smell even in cafe. Everything looks quite run down. Obviously needs some money spent on it.
  • This place has got variety of fish species. Main attraction is the largest shark they got in entire UK. Seal show is another attraction though the water looked murky. If you choose to walk from North Queensferry station to this place then you'll see stunning views of both rail and road bridges.
  • Nice place, seen a lot of fish I have never seen before! There's more than fish, there are frogs, spiders and snakes too. The seal area does look a bit disgusting, the water is green and smelly. It can be very busy and crowded at the weekend, you can hardly move when you're under the glass because of all the people. Overall really nice place to go with family, but it is really expensive and not worth that amount of money.
  • Nice variety of aquatic creatures from Nemo to Tiger Sand Sharks. Amphibians and reptiles to. In the outside keep are the seals. Although entrance fee is a little pricey it's really worth a visit. Having said that there is some downsides. The amphibians tanks are quite mucky and hard to see in. These could have there windows sqeegied before the public enter. The cafe to is a let down as prices are well inflated and queueing is unbelievably long. The gift shop however is very reasonably priced. It is worth purchasing the Behind the Scenes ticket for an extra £3. This is a guided tour behind the tanks and above the sharks with a member of staff telling all how things are done. We would like to go again but as it is a large entry fee, viewing our photos will have to do. We give 4 stars.
