Another duel pricing scam.
Jan 2020
If you are happy to pay over 100% more because you are a foreigner,Then go and enjoy.
But if you do not agree with the duel pricing in Thailand give it a wide berth and take your atm somewhere else.

A nice and slow pace aquarium at cape panwa
Feb 2019
A not so big aquarium at Cape Panwa.
Since this place is under the supervision of government agencies, so the price is reasonable with what you can see inside.
I enjoyed this place despite not expecting anything.
I like the Giant Groupers tank the most.

Good to go besides beach
Oct 2019 • Family
If you have mid-age children (6-12 years) it will be a good opportunity to go (besides the beach). It is not comparable to European standards of an aquarium (plastic flowers, fish sometimes more presented that shown in natural environment). I think it was different the time aquarium was newly established. But 2019 it's more old fashioned / old style.

Just boring
Oct 2019
Some tanks were dirty. Parts were closed off. There was hardly anyone there. Has great potential but needs a full overhaul.

A nice aquarium in Cape Panwa, Phuket
Sep 2019
It's a nice aquarium in Cape Panwa, Phuket. Not very new and not luxurious. But the admission fee is very reasonable and you can find a lot of pretty and rare fishes there, including sharks. If you have time or if you stay in Cape Panwa area or visit Cape Panwa, I would recommend you to drop by. Spare at least 40 minutes there. But if you have 1 - 2 hours, it would be perfect.

Sadly we visited whilst lots of screaming kids!
Sep 2019
Small but as it was down the road we thought we would pop in. Unfortuantly we visited during school trips and there were lots of screaming kids running in all directions completely out of control! Can get very noisy as the noise echo's around the place. Its quite small so wont take to long to get round but despite the noise quite pleasant!

Some exhibits should be bigger
Sep 2019 • Couples
We usually avoid attractions with animals, but we do sometimes sin by visiting an aquarium. This aquarium did surprise us by how well it's organised and maintained. The entrance fee was around 250bht.

We were most impressed by the electric eel exhibit. We learned a lot about marine life that emit electricity. The black tip shark exhibit made us a bit sad, it's way to small and it's a square aquarium. Sharks can not see directly in front of them and are usually kept in oval aquariums so they don't swim into the glass all the time.

I noticed many people who wrote reviews mixed this place up with The Aquaria Phuket located at the Central Festival mall. This is a totally different aquarium which costs almost 4 times as much for a ticket.

Something to do in Phuket
Aug 2019
The Aquarium has some great exhibits and some very colourful and exiting fish species. I also agree that some of the tanks were too small even for the eels. The walk through was great although again could have been bigger. They were trying to clean the tanks constantly whilst we were there. The groupers etc. tank was great. The drive there, the naval yards and bay were also magnificent.

Short simple visit
Aug 2019 • Family
The place was rather small but overall it was a good experience for my 1.5yo son. Kids below 130cm is free. There is also this 7min video but unfortunately it was narrated in Thai so my 5yo couldn't understand anything since he also couldn't read from the Eng subtitles.

We spend probably a total of an hour there.
