“Disappointing and not very eco friendly”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

I attended here based on there advertised display of Hammerhead Sharks. I was disappointed to find that all of these sharks were juveniles and none were any bigger than maybe 600mm in length.
The display of sea creature was not representative of what was advertised with many creatures not on display. To my horror they had touch tanks for sharks, turtles and rays which as a person involved in the marine life industry appalled me. Small sharks and rays are not designed to have 1000's of hands touching them each day. Further more all three black tip reef sharks in one of the touch tanks had skin an flesh missing from their top of their tail fin where it had been hitting in a part of the display due to the shallow depth of the water. All in all this was a very poor and disappointing display marine life and not very marine life friendly.

“A fun place for the kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014 via mobile

This was our third visit.

And this time we gave ourselves time to see all the feeding occasions.

Kids will love it.

The newly introduced Hammer head sharks are awesome and so are the massive dugongs.

It is very crowded on weekends and you need to be very alert to keep track of your kids.

Touch pool is quite safe. ..go ahead and do it with yourself.

This is not as big as the Bangkok ocean world or the Singapore aquarium, but still worth visiting with your kids.

“Quite good fun actually”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

This place has different things to do. Take the aquarium of Sea World. Quite impressive actually. Touch real fish. Walk under the mantas. Good fun for children.
There is also a swimming pool and art craft village nearby.
You'll need a car (taxi) to get there.
Reduction for the "eldery", which in Indonesia starts at 55...

“Don't do it!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

We didn't really have high expectations but what we found was even worse. Being a week day it wasn't very busy at all. We paid for the Dolphin show which was scheduled for 4.15 but we left at 5pm after waiting in an empty arena. As we walked out we saw the dolphin enclosure and was horrified, it was about 5metres max in diameter and we could see at least 2 dolphins just constantly going around in circles it was appalling. The Park in general is leafy however the buildings are very run down. The same song was being played over and over and was extremely irritating. This place shouldn't even be operational in the state it is in.
