“Sharks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

The shark tunnel is absolutely amazing. Best I have seen worldwide.
Nice to spend at least half a day.

“Brilliant day out!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

Underwater tunnels are especially good, as is the dolphin. If you are there long enough, I would recommend a visit - especially with children

“Fabulous experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014

It was beautifully laid out, with so much of interest to see, two tunnels allowing us to walk amongst the fish. Separate areas to represent different environments, you walk from one to the other, all clearly signposted, we used the audio guides which were helpful. The animals, on the whole, with the exception of what I've mentioned below, seemed very happy and well cared for.

Only downside was, we thought the penguins didn't look very happy, they had their beaks against the glass and were swimming, as if they were trying to get out. The Baluga whales were also behaving in a stressed manner, doing repetitive circles.

“A real experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

The various aquaria are housed in very well planned and attractive modern buildings surrounded by ponds and gardens, giving the impression that all captive species are well cared for. The dolphins show is amazing. Best to book tickets in advance during the high season as the park is very likely very crowded.
