I really enjoyed the Shark Diving, one thing I would advice of is they should supply oxygen masks in order to get more time under water. now even though we really enjoy the challenge was gasping for air every now and then.

Not like overseas but I really love coming here and even on my own sometimes just to walk around, hence the platinum membership.

This Aquarium is so well laid out in the middle of Ushaka complex with Waterworld and diving and snorkeling attached. It was an amazing experience that seemed to go on forever with surprises around every corner. Truly enjoyable. Afterwards walk the promenade and enjoy beach-life and some nice places to eat. Segway rides available at the Mabida Stadium were enjoyable.

This is an optimum place to visit with the family. Very relaxing and tranquil. Also visit dangerous creatures. We visit at least every 3 months.

A fantastic sea world experience. Don't miss it if you are in Durban. Nothing like it in South Africa. One could spend the whole day there and not get tired. The restaurants are great as well.

It was interesting to see and learn all about the different sea creatures. I didn't even know half of the m existed. The dolphin show was good, not excellent but worth watching. The staff are all very friendly and my boyfriend and his niece enjoyed the Ocean walker activity.

Tool my 3 year old son to the aquarium, we had the best fun ever! I recommend a family day trip to Ushaka, half the day at the Aquarium and the other half at the water park! Only down side was the Sea World bath rooms were utterly disgusting and the stink in there almost got me to the point... More

The display of various marine creatures is beautiful, its an informative and interesting tour. You get to have a closer look at the creatures and they have a wide variety.

This an excellent place to spend a couple of hours! I thoroughly enjoyed strolling around looking at the various marine life! There are spots setup along the way to give you some perspective views and to take some cool photos.
