Blue Reef Aquarium Reviews
It was very interesting, not the biggest aquarium I've ever seen but still enough. We enjoyed the seal show and I would definitely come again. more »
We both visited this attraction when we were in the area, although it's not a massive place it was well worth a visit to see the otters and seals alone, the keepers give a questions and answers talk o... more »
We always love going to the aquarium - from the variety of attractive fish to other beasts and similar! Today we saw a horseshoe crab - quite an unusual sight in such a place - and the otters were ver... more »
Fairly small aquarium but luckily we booked our student tickets in advance so it wasn't too pricey. Make sure you also do this!! Overall the exhibits were good and fun to take pictures of the various species of fish (and random tiny monkeys...). The seal show was pretty fun!
Great fish and animal displays with fascinating information. Loads of activities to keep kids (and adults!) interested. But it was the staff who really made the visit special - so knowledgeable and passionate about their work! The emphasis on conservation was unexpected and impressive. We couldn't decide in the car on the way back which was our favourite bit - so many to choose from: mischievous otters...performing seals...just-born baby monkeys....
Good selection of fish and wildlife. A little on the small side but they do really well with what space they have. The shows are regular and the seal show is especially worth waiting for. It is a little pricey but its definitely worth a visit.
This is a tough one to review. The Aquarium is good and an enjoyable trip with a child. The Seal show is a particular highlight. However the entry price is too expensive considering the (small) size of the place, you can easily walk round in under an hour. With the high entry fee they should look at modernising or expanding the venue.
Great day out with a 3 year old. If you spend enough time time there, you can get involved in a few activities. Seeing animals get their food while the great staff talk about their environment and conservation. Could do with a bit of tidying up. Not perfect, but definitely worth the visit in my opinion.
