“The dolphin show is excelent, and the shark tank really impressive”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

This is a very worth while attraction to visit if you are in Durban. Dolphins, of course, are impressive and I found myself instantly connecting with the friendly animals.
The aquarium, scened as an abandoned ship has a number of very interesting species, but the shark tank is absolutely amazing, I was so close to the sharks slowly swimming by I could see the details of their teeth. Unfortunately I cannot assess the price of the ticket, since I was in a large group.

“Fantastic fun and entertainment”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

We enjoyed uShaka a lot. The dolphin- and seal shows was really entertaining for the kids. There is a lot to do and see. People working at the aquarium was friendly and helpful. Diving in the shark tanks was really nice except the goggles leak to much. Will definitely go back again.

“Best place in Durban.”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

This is a large beach complex with a small shopping area, lots of places to eat and a very good aquarium. The place is clean, beautiful and, in my opinion, the best place to spend a day in Durban.

“MUST VISIT IN DURBAN”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

The aquarium is wonderful. For families, a day out at the water park with slides and rides is great fun! The beach area (no cost for entry) is one of the better places in Durban.
