We thoroughly enjoyed the exhibitions and displays in a wonderfully nautical setting. We went out of season on a day that many of the activities were closed, but enjoyed the day even so. I particularly appreciated knowledgeable staff on site always ready to eexplain and assist

Lot to see with possibility to dive with sharks. Take a good time, since there is lots to see. Good for families as well as those who travel as solo or couples.

Oh what a lifetime experience - visiting the sea world I couldn't not let go of it. We were there for four hours because the sea is my life - people you cannot visit Durban and not go to the sea world,

You get to meet all the amazing and beautiful sea life first hand. Get to butt heads with dangerous sharks and calm sea turtles. Fun filled seal lions and many more intelligent creatures. Just what an animal love needs

Best outing for the family in Durban. Not just on the aquarium but on the water park and the restaurants as well. This park are well maintained and very clean. Well done to management. This is my regular place to visit when I'm in Durban.

Very clever design to the building and structure to replicate a beached broken ship and all the tanks made to seem apart of the structure and gives you a unique feel and not just walking and looking through glass at fish. This is a must see. Went a few years ago.
