helpful staff, interesting display. modest enty cost. learn more about the southern coast marine life
Was expecting more from this place particularly for the price. It largely comprises displays, some kids activities and some videos. The 3D video was basic and poor quality - not really worth viewing.

A great place to learn a great deal about the different types of whale.Kids could look for 'hidden treasures' in the sand pit.The real whale skeletons and parts were awesome!Unfortunately December was not a time for whale watching.

We visited the whale centre just recently and found it very interesting. Even though we don't have small children anymore we still found it fascinating and enjoyed playing with the displays in the kids area. The 3D movie was great and explained a lot about whales. Also the little movie about the whalers was done well, but would have been... More
