This place is crowded with people, young and old. It's a place for everybody and their seaside display is pretty amazing. It was fun walking through the trail and being surprised by all the different displays. At the end of the trail, you could pat certain of sea creatures that are supervised and in the tank. It's worth a visit... More

My husband and I made a trip here while on our honeymoon. The place was so neat! The location, the surrounding sights, the attraction etc. I was a little skeptical at first about going to an aquarium, but I'm glad we did. It was more fun than I expected! Saw a lot of families, with kids of all ages. I... More

My partner and I are very much aquarium people, and because there isn't one in the city we live in, we make sure to go to them whenever we're travelling. I would highly recommend this! The highlights were, of course, the huge whale sharks in the centre tank, but I also loved seeing the adorable clawed otters, the impressive jellyfish... More
