“Cute animals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

The aquarium is big and full of families walking by. The attractions are the dolphins and whales as expected and the babies are very cute and used to people. Next to the Aquarium there is a museum and the ferris wheel which is beatiful in the night.

“Not Seaworld Orlando but quite good (not sure about Orca's pool size)”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

Clean, easy to get to, animals seem well cared for. The Orca pool seemed very small which was quite upsetting to see (I really hope they had a bigger pool to go to "behind the scenes"). The Belugas were lovely and treated well, it was the highlight of the visit.

“Another great aquarium in Japan”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

You can find more than just fish in this aquarium. There are four orca here and you can catch the orca show at the main pool daily. Besides the orca show, there is also the dolphins show in which these smart little creatures can stun you with their impressive moves. A great place not to be missed when you are in Nagoya.

“Excellent Dolphin Performance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

We visited for about 3 hours and saw everything the aquarium had to offer, lots to see for a 6 year old, the dolphin performance was spectacular with very high jumps. Unfortunately the Orca performance was cancelled on the day of our visit.

“Amazing animals in an impressive setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

If you believe that keeping animals in captivity is cruel then I wouldn't recommend this experience. But otherwise, don't miss this if you visit Nagoya. The dolphins, orcas, belugas and other sea creatures appear to be well fed and cared for and they put on an amazing show. The display of various other aquatic life is both fascinating and educational. We spent nearly 3 hours there and could easily have passed an entire day if we'd had more time.
