Not so good
Nov 2019 • Couples
The place needs to be improved. There are not many kinds of sea creature over here. But in general, it is not so bad

Absolute disgrace
Aug 2018 • Couples
Our boat tours last stop was here, it was an absolute disgrace. The tanks were far too small, dirty and the fish looked like they deserved to be rescued back into the sea. There was a large area cordoned off with green turtles in we just wanted to let them swim free. This place should not be allowed to stay open. Don’t visit and support it.

Why?
Jul 2018 • Friends
Why Asia Vacations support this place by sending their tours here is beyond me. An absolute waste of a day. We would not recommend this place for a second. The fish should be set free and the place closed down

Horrid
Jul 2018 • Couples
The biggest disappointment of our trip so far. Why tour groups put us through this pain is beyond me. If you want to see fish, put a snorkel on. These poor caged fish should be released immediately. Asia Vacations must stop putting tours through here as it’s just supporting a terribly run down prison for fish.

Don’t do it

It looks good in the pictures.
It looks good from a distance.
But that's where it stops.
It is nowhere near the standard of Western aquariums as far as display style and exhibits are concerned.
Sharks in the larger bodies of water are teased with fish tied to a line to excite them into action for the audience.

Disastrous!

There's some construction going on. The boat will leave you there for 45 minutes to do nothing if you are not in the aquarium (which is something I don't agree with) Seriously don't waste your money there.

Wouldn’t not recommend unless you like seeing sick animals
Feb 2018 • Family
Only visited this place as part of a tour and was shocked to see the conditions of the animals. The tanks are so tiny the animals barely have room to move. There were 3 turtles kept in a tank inside so tiny they couldn’t even turn around or change direction. It was heartbreaking to see and they looked distressed. The water in the tanks was filthy and when we got to the shark tank they were all just sitting in the bottom, which sharks aren’t meant to do. They all looked sick.

There really wasn’t much to see and we spent maybe 10 minutes there before we left, as seeing the conditions of the animals was horrifying.

Venue was dirty and rubbish everywhere. Toilets were filthy and none of them flushed. Would not recommend funding this place’s animal cruelty practices.

DO NOT SUPPORT THIS PLACE
Sep 2017 • Friends
Don't be fooled by the interesting look of this place from a distance. Horrible experience. Extremely small tanks for large 1mtr+ fish, turtles, rays. Water quality is very very bad in the large tanks, green algae and very murky. Large outdoor enclosures are stagnant and covered in green algae. Aquatic life covered in algae. To top all this off the whole time we could hear a horrible distressful scream coming from the direction of the seal enclosure. We left before going near the seal enclosure but can only assume the screaming was coming from a caged seal.

Woeful

This tour was part of our package. The venue is really dirty and the rubbish floating in the water surrounding it is really horrid. They did have two of the oldest men on the planet trying to scoop the rubbish out but i suspect it was more for show than actually to clean up.
There are a variety of fish in rather small tanks along with some pretty tired looking sea horses and eels. The tanks just seemed so filthy.
Outside there were two large ocean type pools, one had some very large fish in it but you could barely see them as the water was filthy and i did wonder how the poor things breathed. The other contained 7 really large sea turtles, again the water was filthy so unless the poor things were right on the surface you would never be able to see them.
I was really shocked when some Chinese tourists went right into the water and started pulling on their flippers i bought this to the attention of our guide but he insisted that this was ok and that we could do it too as it was good luck. We chose not to tug at them.
There was another enclosed pool area, i don't know what was in it but they were trying to entice them with prawns on a fishing line. At that point we decided it was time to leave.
I would not recommend this as a tourist attraction. I think as Australians we are so lucky with our beatiful aquariums, zoos and nature parks that places like this in Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand just upset us. Do yourself a favour and stay away.

Great seals show !
Mar 2017 • Friends
I visited the Tri Nguyen aquarium as a part of 3 island boat trip . We went with my wife and kids . The aquarium was ok , The tropical garden in which it's located enchanting,but the real great surprise was the seals show at the Dolphins Planet . It was the best deal in Nha Trang . For little more than $1 we were treated to the professional show that our kids loved . Thanks to the russian team of animal trainers the little critters performed acrobatic tricks and amused everyone . I guess those Russkies know not only how to hack our elections :). Strongly recommend during your stay in Nha Trang.
