There is quite a lot of exhibits in the aquarium. You can rent an audio guide in the aquarium to understand the exhibits. However, the place maybe crowded, so do go there early.

Check if your hotel sells the tickets. we stayed at universal port and they sold the tickets and ferry tickets also. Very easy and not crowded day we went. Never saw any lines to get it. Well organised. Enjoy.
