An absolute must when in Durban. One of the best aquariums I have ever visited. The kids just love it.

Awesome! So much to do. No matter what you end up doing you enjoy EVERYTHING. Shark cages are worth viewing. Dolphins are a must see. Not only fun fir kids but adults also. Very safe and friendly security staff.

The location of the aquarium is perfectly tucked in next to the ocean. You can have a lovely stroll before coming to the park which is approximately 30 minutes walk from downtown. The entrance fee was very descent for the number of attractions inside. There are large displays of sharks and fish within the aquarium itself, peppered with smaller tanks... More

This is a must see for all visitors to Durban. Excellent presentation of fish, information and visibility! Highly educational even without tour - well presented information everywhere. A must see!

Our family is trying to get over the Aquaphobia, now when you see God's beautiful creatures you actually realise there's life there not only danger.

The Aquarium is a "must see" when in Durban. The aquarium is huge and much thought has gone into the design. You will still find the traditional dolphin and seal shows drawing the crowd. We love going to Sea World, and enjoy everything just as much as we enjoyed it the first time.

My wife and I where excited about seeing the Sea World, again. We had seen it about 1 and a half years earlier. The first time we saw it we were impressed with the shows and everything to do there. This time we were not impressed as we went with our 22 month old daughter to see the dolphin show,... More

We stayed 5 mins away from Sea world and took a walk and once we arrived we were amazed at how big it was. My 2 year old daughter loved the dolphin show the most.
