“Leave you dignity at the gate and have fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Over the peak season in December we took out kids to Ushaka Marine World. The ticket price also included entry into the Wet and Wild Park (R 165.00 per person)
Kids under 3 are free.

This park is packed with super tube ride and swimming pools.
We left our dignity at the gate and had an awesome time with out kids.

The rides were very well controlled and safety was their priority.

There were many lifeguards on duty.

We did hire a locker for R 30 for the day which we felt was worth it.

You are not allowed to take you own food into the park and the choice in the park was limited.
We obtained a pass out and went to the Ushaka Mall to find a more suitable lunch for our family.

Much fun was had by all and we will certainly return.

“Dolphin Show is a must”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

I absolutely loved the dolphin show, however it would be better if the dolhpins did a few more tricks to entertain the audience.

“Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Ushaka Marine World is a magnificent place to be just to enjoy an outing with family and friends.. It has different exciting activities that cater for everyone's needs.

Good
-clean, safe environment
-dolphins and sea lion shows
-breath taking aquarium
-beautiful pools and slides

Bad
- Avoid during Peak Days: it gets overcrowded, lines for every single slide and impossible to find a place to sit

“Awesome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

The Sea world activities were value for money. All activities from Sea World shows / displays to Ship wreck acquarium as well wet and wild et.c were all in one package.

There were opportunities for Shark Dives, feeding of the sharks, dolphins and other Sea creatures. The Dolphin show was the highlight of the visit though the Seal and penguin shows / displays were equally breathtaking. The high intelligence of the Sea creatures was evident.

Above all, it was nice to see people who genuinely love and actively protect the Sea World. We spent over 3 hours just watching shows and feeding and on another visit I hope to engage in the wet and wild. It was an amazing experience
