Really worth a visit, not expensive to get in. Have loads of fish, reptiles, snakes to see. It is located in a tunnel in the rocks so it is quite dark which shows the fish up well.

In fact one of the worst. Such a shame. Plenty of fish and reptiles to look at, but why can't they spend a little time and money on updating the signs and improving the lighting. Maybe then they would have better reviews and attract more visitors.

Run-down, dirty and depressing with many of the tanks empty and the ones that had specimens looked a very sorry sight.

With a limited range of fish and a smaller array of reptiles, this attraction will entertain most families for about half an hour. The premises also houses a shop selling all things aquarium related including fish and does have some interesting specimens to look at, but the labelling is not always accurate and some looked decidedly deceased (especially one crab).

This aquarium was the absolute crowning glory of Guernsey for us. Our tour would show us such marvels as specsavers European office, an old BBC mast, a school our driver used to work in, Doris's house, a house that used to have goats and now doesn't. This though, was a 20 minute walk to a pet shop.

This is really an individuals collection of reptiles and fish - housed in an underground tunnel. A lot of the tanks are really far too small for the creatures and it's all a bit amateur. We popped in as my husband was visiting the military museum next door and it was raining - probably wouldn't have bothered otherwise!

I like a good aquarium and this place looked inviting from the outside, Going inside it is like a regular pet shop with a few tanks to go and look at. The building is shabby and floors were wet, some of the tanks werent labelled and others had photos on in black and white that were so faded you couldnt... More

As others have said, this venue needs some attention. To be fair, it's cheap to get in, but many of the tanks were empty or lacking in signage or had signs that weren't lit and were virtually unreadable. The staff weren't that interested in us either although they did at least allow a student a reduced entry fee. It passed... More

Tucked away under the cliffs, south of St Peter Port this aquarium cum aquatics shop needs some attention. Some tanks were empty, some with no information and the whole environment was below what you now expect from this type of attraction.
