  • This is more like a hobbiest collection of sea life not an Aquarium in a major seaside city! You can re-enter as many times as you like during the day which may offer the hence to see different talks ...  more »

  • The fish look healthy, well looked after and the pools are all clean. It's an easy place to find with plenty of local parking nearby, right on the beach front. Staff are very knowledgeable, passionate and full of information when needed. Children can touch the crab and starfish in a special pool and there is a fossil search exhibit at the end. There are plenty of feeding times to check out and loads of engaging talks throughout the day. The place itself is quite expensive and becoming rundown but all in all a good place to go.
  • Friendly helpful staff. Easy access for the disabled. Kids will have a fabulous time here
  • Fab place to take the kids and for adults. Lovely little outdoor park with water fun too. The kiddies can have a play while you check out the sea view. Cafe attached has nice food.
  • Good value for money. Kids loved it
  • I'm sorry but this is not worth £44 for three kids and two adults. Admittedly the stingray and two sharks were great to see but one of the large aquariums was empty and stank, also the walk through at Portsmouth is so so short and simply not worth the £44. Also, customers should be warned that one of the exhibits is closed and at least owed a discount on the pricey entrance fees.
