Definitely worth a visit, facilities are clean, functional and well layed out. Good family day out. Good supporting resturant facilities both within the complex or adjoining shopping mall.

The setting in an old ship - how much more creative and natural could this be. The species diversity and the educational learning from one point to the next is intense. A great atmosphere.

Thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a beautiful aquarium built in old ship which has all sorts of sea creatures. They offer Shark feed etc but we didn't find it as exciting than we expected but it is just 1 part. Rest all was great fun.

I was dragged along to the aquarium but ended up really enjoying it. A pleasant couple of hours out my day but beware it gets BUSY during weekends and holidays. Lots of screaming kids and irate mothers shouting... enjoy
