“Not a lot there”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

Some nice things to see, but it is very small. But quite interesting and hey, it's free, so not a bad thing!

“Quite hidden and free”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2012

This little place is right next to the water park at Goodrington, but if you are not looking for it you would certainly miss it.
Very informative for young children.

“Underwater Adventure”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2012

Interesting little fact finding musuem. Quite interesting for kids, to go through the seaweed curtains and see the crabs, look up at the tv to see the magnified shells and open little doors to find out curious facts. Absolutely FREE, but only worth a 15-20 min visit/

“Very small and little in it - but free”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2011

I can't give this attraction on Goodrington Beach in Paignton less than 3 stars as it is free to visit. Inside there are a few tanks containing fish, shrimp etc (although we could not see many of them) and some information about the sea life in the area. I am not 100% sure but I think they also organise walks from here exploring wildlife. Fine for children for maybe 15 mins or so.
