It is tiny, very shabby, but after you get past that, the fish and other marine life are actually quite plentiful and interesting.

Plus be given an informative chat about the sea life that reside there. We took our 1 year old and she was made to feel very welcome and was able/allowed to... More

Spent a good half day here and took advantage of the meal deal. Enjoyed the morning and afternoon feedings and the helpful informative dialogue with staff. Break for lunch in the restaurant adjacent to the aquarium was peaceful on the balcony over the water. Good range of options on menu. It is not a large aquarium, but I spent hours... More
