Loved the aquarium and dolphins but had no need to go into waterpark. Should be able to go in aquarium without having to pay for the waterpark too.

There is so much to see and learn. The kids absolutely love it, their faces light up and they get so excited. The fish are lovely and serene.

Loved the entire experience from the Dolphin show to the acquarium. Great atmosphere with the carnival/costumed dances and beautiful deco. Great selection of restaurants to choose from.

Dolphin show is delightful View from under a ship; Shark tank spell binding to watch. Lots of colourful usual sea creatures to glare at; Can be quite a tranquil experience. Great for all the family.

I probably didn't do this aquarium justice, flitting round it quicker than I should have done but it left a good impression. It is probably an invidious comparison but my feeling is that it is better than the Cape Town aquarium I visited several years ago (which may well be different now!). I love the setting in the old ship.... More
