“Brilliant”

Rather shabby from the outside however having read a review on the outside of the building I figured we should go check out the inside. Don't expect a huge aquarium. This is small. Yet it is stacked full of local fish from pollock to lobsters and from starfish to plaice. The man working there clearly loved his job and loved the fish and displayed total enthusiasm. The fish were in good condition, with plenty of space to swim around in and the man overseeing the aquarium was full of knowledge and super keen to offer information about the different species. Both the kids and us adults thoroughly enjoyed it and really recommend popping in. For the very small entrance fee this place should definitely not be missed if you're visiting Fowey.

Just come back from a long wknd camping. Nipped in here on Saturday and thought it was brilliant, loads of local species to see, and an extremely helpful and informative owner who was willing to explain anything you asked . If your interested in nature, fish, or wildlife, go.

It was the first time I had been inside this aquarium. We spent ages in there looking at the fish and other sea life. The chap who runs the aquarium spent time talking to us ans answering our questions. He even fed the small lobster and the wrasse so they would come out of hiding so we could see them. I would definitely recommend anyone interested in marine life to visit here if you're in Fowey.

Fantastic displays of native marine life to Cornwall. Includes a touch pool. The owner is very knowledgeable and approachable. All the creatures get put back into the sea at the end of the season.
