We had a great time here. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and there are lots of fish to see. We never did see the sharks, but the angel fish and the other saltwater fish are beautiful. We got there kind of late in the day, we're not really morning people, but to our benefit, we had the whole... More

I have been lucky enough to scuba dive in many tropical areas and experienced marine life at its best but nothing prepared me for the totally amazing experience of diving with large jacks, groupers and numerous angel fish (amongst others) which live in the Seabase pools. Ok so you won't have clear, pristine waters with amazing viz but being so... More

Wow, what a fun place to go. We have snorkeled here several times and love it! First off, if you're used to diving/snorkeling somewhere exotic, try to remember that you're visiting a mini ocean in the middle of a land-locked state. For those expecting the Great Barrier Reef, you won't find it. For those that can appreciate a geographical anomaly... More

Not a number one destination choice, but a good experience anyway. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There are a lot of fish to see is the water clarity is good. You can buy a head of lettuce to feed the fish and they will eat right out of your hand. Get there at 8am and you can watch... More

It is cool that someone has transformed this into an attraction for those who rarely or never get to go snorkeling or scuba in an ocean coral reef area, but for those who have, it is disappointing. The water clarity is definitely a big issue.

You can swim with huge tropical fish at a hotspring! Seriously awesome experience. Fish are friendly, eating right out of your hand. See the sharks and rayd being fed if you get there at 9:00 am. The staff is friendly and the environment relaxed. If you just want to hang out its $5, which is pretty awesome, but you can... More
