Our 5 year old son loved it, especially as he got to touch a star fish and a sea cucumber. It's not as big as I thought It would be, and we'd been round it within 1.5 - 2 hours... read more

Good Aquiarium with sealife for kids mostly, is good for the whole family but kids always have loads of fun during their time in this good place, they have giant turtles, sharks, rays, and more... They mishap is the price, only a bit expensive but for one time is worth the visit!

The Sea Life Centre is very well set out and easy to get around, but unfortunately it was very expensive for it's size. We were round in under an hour. If you're expecting something on the scale of London Aquarium or Sea Life Centre Brighton then look elsewhere. Some of the tanks looked a bit small for the animals that... More

Welcoming and really well set out for young and Old alike. Plenty to see and read about. The Otters were really endearing as they were being fed by two keepers, clearly they had a lovely connection with their charges. Loved being that close to sharks and being completely dry in the tunnel. Huge turtle in the same tank

Situated in the marina has a wide selection of sealife. Reasonably priced as you can take as much time as possible there. Worth a visit if you are staying in the area

We wanted to go for an "excursion" to "kill" a fel hours with our kids. We spent 50 minutes in the car from Estepona to visit the aquarium. It's worth going there if you're in The neighbourhood but not really worth going too far to visit. It's quiet small however nice.

Lots of lovely fish, staff are lovely, really nice day out. next to the marina so plenty to keep you occupied. Did facepainting with my little girl and you can touch some of the fish too.

We've visited several sea life centres, this is certainly the smallest. Even though we walked back to the start and went through again and watched a presentation on sea horses, I can imagine it took us no more than an hour to get round it. What they do have is good though and my daughter seemed to like it.
