Good collection of ocean species

I like the way they laid out the interior of the building, taking you through various jungle like passages, viewing the numerous aquariums along the way. The upper floors are dedicated to larger creatures, dolphins, walruses, seals, etc. There are strategically placed high priced gift shops along the way.

great attraction in Penglai, animals all seem to be well looked after ,dolphin show which was good and was all well done, we were allowed to feed the turtles and seals for a small fee something we had never done before , all in all very interesting we spent a good 3hrs looking at all the animals and fish, the signs also being in English was very helpfull

Nice fish and shows

Spent 2-3 hours at the Ocean Aquarium of Penglai. It was a big place with lovely fish and interesting shows, especially the "mermaid show" was nice. The place seemed like a maze with many levels. The dolphin show was very loud and it had a lot of talking in Chinese, so it was a bit disappointing.

lots of fish. I did not like that they were throwing coins at the crocodiles, they were even selling coins to throw at the poor animal. lovely dolphin show though and great gift shop.

Another great experience in Penglai

Spent 3-4 hours in this nice waterpark.
Many strange spices of fish and other water related creatures.
Also a 4D cinema, and a watershow worth viewing.
Nise architecture so you get a feeling of wandering in a jungle.
It can be quite crowded, and many children running around, so be pasient.

10 Dolphins at this park stolen from the Sea after their family were slaughtered!!!!
Nov 2013 • Family
10 of the dolphins at this 'entertainment' park were chased into a cove in Taiji, Japan.

The one's deemed fit enough by 'trainers' were bought whilst the rest of the Dolphin family were brutally slaughtered in from of the captured dolphins eyes.

They swam in the blood of their dead families.

The ‘trainers’ watched as this all happened.

Before you pay any money to this 'attraction' educate yourself on what you are paying for.

These dolphins were stolen and the rest of their pods slaughtered in Taiji, Japan. They do not belong in small tanks performing for people. They belong with their families in the ocean. BOYCOTT all marine parks that use marine mammals for entertainment purposes. please.

Park contributes to Taiji dolphin slaughters !
Jun 2013
10 of the dolphins at this park were stolen from the wild ! Once living with their families, in their home , the ocean. Now destined for a life of captivity ! All for the sake of entertainment . Taiji fishermen slaughter 100's of dolphin and other small cetaceans every year . The 'pretty' ones are picked and plucked from the wild and end up in places like this. This is wrong and must stop. !!!

It's a pity...
Sep 2013 • Family
Unfortunately I had the opportunity to know that, at least 10 of dolphins of this park where brought from Taiji in Japan. So it certain that this 10 dolphins were brought alive here while many others were killed in a very cruel and inhumane fashion. I rather suggest other places to see dolphins, like near the sea, instead of this park.
