Have visited many aquariums around the world with my kids -- this one felt somewhat average to be honest. If your kids have not visited any or many aquariums then they will enjoy this one, but if you have been to some of the bigger and newer ones elsewhere then this may be a bit of a disappointment overall.

We recently returned to see the aquarium after five years, and loved the experience once again. Walking through the clear tunnel surrounded by rays, sharks, and fish of every size and color is an amazing feeling. It was under construction so we weren't able to see the dugongs (manatees) but that didn't spoil our visit. Our grandchildren enjoyed all the interactive displays and interesting creatures.

There are some really interesting exhibits here and you can get some amazing views of the sealife. One of the highlights are the amazing walk through tunnels with sharks and rays swimming above you truly fantastic. Quite pricey though, but we combined with 4 other attractions and saved a huge amount of money. Well worth a look.

I liked the platypuses and was surprised how small they are. This is a great aquarium and should be visited.

Lots to see and great for kids (if you have them). It is very good at providing education on various marine species.
