Adult group visit, great if you're a fish fan, which I'm not, but plenty to see, under water tunnel walk through best part for me, with sharks, rays and turtles swimming overhead. Great experience for children I should think.

Though the surroundings were great and obviously, the sea creatures were mesmerising, we found ourselves getting through the place really quickly. A great deal of the interactive stuff was aimed towards younger kids and kids at heart couldn't even fit in to try it out...More

thanks for your feedback about interactive. I would not disagree that these are aimed at children as adults normally get value from the displays, creatures and interpretation. We try to engage every audience at every age if we possibly can.

Got a couple of tickets to this attraction using clubcard vouchers. Was a great place to spend an hour but wouldn't have paid full price on the day. Was great seeing the turtles and sharks though.
