It's not the best underwater world but I do enjoy their show during feeding time for the seal. The penguins are cute and they like to interact with the visitors

This is the place that I think is quite a waste to visit. It is nothing much impressive other than the penguins. Maybe it is suitable for a primary kids to visit not an adult as it is really boring.

A good place to take your kids esp on rainy days. Not much varieties of marine creatures for the price paid. We only enjoyed the fur seals and penguins. Quite a rip off Since its an enclosed place. Loud conversations seemed to be amplified which can be quite annoying. The staff don't even bother to stop ignorant visitors from using... More

This is one of the first attractions visited by me with family while in Langkawi. Well maintained setup with some Birds, Animals as well as lots of underwater living things. Information boards present in front of the exhibits to provide quick information about the exhibit. There is a cafeteria in the middle, just before marine section to fill ourselves up.... More

This isn't the biggest or the most spectacular aquarium you will ever go to, but it is well done and well thought out for it's size. I saved going here for a bad weather day, and it was a perfect way to wait out the rain. If you take time to appreciate and really look at the exhibits, then it... More

Nothing to really see here, and the conditions for the animals and fish are terrible. A dive to travellers: save your 40RM and put it towards Devs Mangrove Tours

This is a fun way to escape the heat. The seals and penguins were my favorite. They take credit. The facilities are nice, as well.

What a great attraction! And reasonable. Fresh and salt water. Some really unusual critters like a Naitilus, spider crabs and albino frogs. Some pretty birds too. Unlike Thailand, same price for foreigners. And superior to similar attractions in Singapore, Bangkok and Pattaya. Huge and easy to tour. Your kids might love it!

We went in at 11:30 am and missed the penguin feeding session, some of the big fishes are really amazing but expected more creatures given the superb ecosystem Malaysia has. Pricy for 40 RM!

Aquarium was average (compared to others I have visited) and I was not amused, my 4 year old nephew enjoyed his time though. Facility seems old and the glass on some aquariums were scratched/blurry. Depending on your pace, ½ hour to hour is more than enough time. After leaving aquarium, you walk into a shopping center. Non-Malaysians pay more, which... More
