I fully support this place. To me its not signed posted enough by the State to let people know where it is. I simply stumbled into it by chance. I've seen some mixed reviews about this place. But what people seem to forget, is it will cost a lot of money just to keep this place "afloat" . So if... More

On arrival, the staff were very nice and explained that they were in the middle of building some parts of the aquarium. When entering it looked just like a fish shop. There were a few different fish to see but as there was a lack of labels, we did not know what half of the species were. Very small and... More

This attraction is OK but definitely needs a good refurbishment. Many of the labels telling you what was in the tanks were missing. There was plenty to see and the admission price was reasonable. However, I was left with wanting to know more about what was in each exhibit.

Took three grand children on a cool day in April. They really enjoyed the exhibits, particularly the spiders and lizards. We loved the lobster and will take the children again. Quite a long walk from town though. Would go in the car next time.

Visited with friends & their 2 year old girl. Tanks in poor state of repair, few signs giving any information and a random poster about the Amazon river. Being on an island it could take so much inspiration from the wildlife around it. Could be much better than it is. Please make Guernseys aquarium better!

The exhibit had obviously seen better days. The tanks were unclean, the information was hanging off the walls, many display panels had nothing in them, and it left you concerned for the few fish on display. Some tanks had nothing in them and the whole place seemed uncared for - unless you wanted to buy fish, tanks or accessories. This... More

This is worth a visit for the few quid. Don't expect a great deal but my daughter really liked and at nearly 2 she has no expectations. Everything in Guernsey is nice but other than beaches nothing is spectacular so it is what it is and they doing a lot with the space.

I visited this aquarium with my husband and could not believe someone would consider charging entry to such an establishment for the following reasons: 1. Empty tanks 2. Occupied tanks lacking descriptions or if a description supplied the lighting above it was broken rendering it impossible to read in the dim light. 3. Occupied tanks where there was a readable...

This is an aquarium coupled with a shop selling related items. It's quite small, but there are a lot of interesting fish. Nothing large scale or spectacular (apart from the incongruous presence of Rosie the Burmese Python !

Warm welcome from the owner who explained about some of the inhabitants we would see. Aquarium is much larger than its outside appearance would suggest. Lots of different fish on show - I fell in love with the garden eels! Definitely worth a visit.
