First thought arriving was that this place was run down and dated. However, all the attractions were enjoyable and better than expected. Saw pequins and many other aquatic creatures. The little beluga whale was hilarious swimming in circles. As are many attractions in China, kids here don't get much discipline and bang on the glasses nonstop, which was terrible. The... More

The theme park is free but the three aquariums have separate fees: Ocean World, Polar World, and Coral World. The park is beautiful. There's a midway. A big bunjee jumping tower over the water is a huge attraction. So is the world's longest underwater aquarium tunnel. Call ahead for free English-speaking guides.Take the double-decker bus #801 from downtown Dalian to... More

The park was a highlight of our visit, especially the dolphin and walrus shows, though the aquarium itself was breathtaking. We were lucky to have a native speaker among our group, as it would have been difficult to know where to go without that (no English signs). It was great fun and probably would have been even more fun with... More

Admission fee is not cheap but it is pretty entertaining and I got ticket to the 4 places. There were different performances at each area. Just make sure you get the time-table from the information counter first to plan your schedule. I visited the place on a Friday afternoon and was able to complete 3 places in less than 3... More

We enjoy this immensely the dolphins were brilliant, clever and really funny the people working with them were very entertaining. The highlight was the Beluga whales I had never seen them before so found it fascinating and everyone in the crowed was fascinated by them I think everyone should see this .

Could be a nice place for visitors and animals. But every aquarium and enclosure is so small. Arctic foxes run around in small circles, obviously distresed, people beat against the glasses of the wale quarium... The place is overcrowded. Save the money, don't watch the poor animals... Again for people who can't speak english: 不要打在玻璃上!

Maybe there are nice shows, and great sea life to see, good coral displays - BUT - zero crowd control. Shows were overpacked w people. One lady piggy backed on to me to see over me. People jammed into us to hwere we couldn't breathe, and they still let more people in. Could not walk from place to place because... More
