The Sea Life Aquarium is not that big and not really much to see and we thought it would be much bigger because of how expensive the prices were. It's very cramped and quite dark when you are walking around so would not recommend it to anybody who's claustrophobic!

This place is great. You can see all kinds of creatures that live in the sea. You can also see otters. This is not a whole day activity but I highly recomend this place ☺

you can spend 2 hours to see a little group of sea creatures but it is not really attractive! if you are more than 5 people it is not recommended to visit at a same time because there will be so crowded

We thought it would have been bigger. It was €30 for 2 adults and a child. The coffee shop could have a wider selection. A little play area in it.

I've been to a few aquariums. For it's size it has a huge range of sealife. The tunnel in the tank is amazing. The kids loved it.

There is much to see and explore. Friendly staff tells gladly more information when asked. Buy tickets from the internet before: it is cheaper.

If you have never been to an aquarium this will be fine but if your kids have been to others this is not great. Cramped/basic and lacks energy/information et.
