  • Acceptable. A bit overpriced if you don't take advantage of many offers to get in a bit cheaper. However still interesting enough for a few hours for the kids. Make sure you time the visit with the feeding of the various animals etc.
  • Super friendly staff with lots of talks and shows involving the animals plus a touch pool with sea urchins, starfish and mire that our 2 and 3 year old loved!
