“Some nice features and nice exhibits”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

We enjoyed the time we spent at Underwater World, especially the penguin and seal exhibits. Some of the other enclosures looked a little tired however and there could have been a bit more emphasis on the local coral and marine life.
The gift shop in the middle of the aquarium and the posed photos were a little off-putting. The toilet facilities were quite dirty and in need of maintenance.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Boat was very old and smelly, hearded on like cattle, very disorganised re diving and boat arrivals, pontoon was a joke, only pleasure was seeing the baby sharks off the jetty when walking to the island.

“Better than the one at KL”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Has wider range of water life than the Aquaria at Kuala Lumpur. The souvenir shops are managed by a bunch of smiling cut throats. DO NOT buy anyting from the first few shops. As you move forward shop by shop the prices keep coming down and the last shop offers the same souvenir at half the cost.

“If you have nowhere else to go”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

For RM28, Malaysians adults with MyKad, the trip can take up to 2 hours if you take your sweet time with the fishes.
Many types of fishes, sharks, a few stingrays, penguins - it's not much for that price.
Although, the penguins were really adorable. So please watch out for the feeding times that are on their website. There is a feeding every 15 minutes starting from 2.30pm up til 4pm+.

The tunnel tank is the best one, as there are all types of fishes there. The stingrays are super adorable as the slide pass the glass on top of you. Their sizes will leave you in awe.

A good place for families to visit, i'm sure the kids will love it.
