I was actually impressed with the aquarium and what it offered for the price. Easy walk from Beach Palace. Our kids really enjoyed the shark tank experience and the swimming with the sea lions. They take great care of the animals I thought.

As others have mentioned, the aquarium is smallish and rather limited. However it is interesting and a nice way to pass time. I was very pleased with the restaurant. There is a bridge seating area. You can order food and drinks and watch the dolphin...More

It is very sad to see the dolphins and sea lion on a so small area. Places like this should be closed as what they do with the animals is just unacceptable.

Quite expensive for so little. No Sea turtles- perhaps because law prohibits it but we were bummed that there were none. Not worth $14

Excellent value for money, basic entry even allows you to feel stingrays! Very well set up, lots to see and lots of useful information. Should sell swimming kit at start not in end shop though so can do dolphin/shark swim if forgotten swim kit.

We choose to do the Interactive Aquarium, what they provided was not what they offered in their brochures. It looked a lot nicer with a lot more interactives. There were a lot of additional charges and the place was small for the price.

We went with our 6 year old. There’s no height requirement as far as I know. They give you a life jacket anyway. Please check their website
