“Small but worth every penny!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013 via mobile

Came here and brought my daughter for the first time as a family day out. It cost is 9.50 each admission but if we upgraded for another 9.50 each we could have a years pass so we did this as this is hugely worth the money, it's an easy place to get to and is fantastic sensory place for my little girl. The talks by the staff were really interesting and I was impressed with the amount of talks considering the small amount of people visiting the aquarium. The cafe was really cheap and very nice. Would highly recommend!

“Fantastic day out and brilliant birthday party!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

We have visited the Sea Life Adventure Aquarium in Southend a couple of times as our little ones love sea creatures. The staff have always been very polite and friendly. The Aquarium is perfect for little ones. Recently we held our child's birthday party there and I was very impressed. Everything was really well organised and the children had a wonderful time. It was both educational and fun! The staff went out of their way to make it a great party. Highly recommend it to visit or for a birthday party!

After upgrading my adventure island wristband for sealife I was able to enjoy my day even more with the bonus of feeling under water with the fish! Was fabulous! Oh and the kids enjoyed it too... Lol. Fabulous day! Will go back soon enough!

“Expensive for such a small Aquarium”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

An overall great day. Brilliant nursery and polite staff.
Excellent choice of marine life and very informative.
Brilliant idea of having wristbands to exit and enter as many times as you like. Perfect so you can have fun on the beach, have a picnic, play at the newly built water park area and go back in later.
