Great for kids. The aquarium is cleverly staged inside a wrecked tramp steamer. They have some very large fish and sharks. Many of the exhibits are very dramatic. It's a relief from the heat inside the aquarium. We went on a Tuesday and it was not very crowded (the water park and the animal encounters are closed on Mon & Tues). The Dolphin and Seal shows are just ok.

This is a fabulous attraction. The aquarium is amazing and we watched the Dolphin Show, this was made extra special as they picked one audience member at the beginning, my nine year old daughter was picked and she touched, fed and kissed a dolphin. Very clean, plenty of great facilities. It was busy but very well organised. We also spent time at the water park, it is adjoining and you can walk between the two attractions but pay for either or both with a combo ticket.

Ushaka Marine World is a splendid aquarium. It is wonderful to walk through the supposed wrecked ship and watch the fish and sea creatures through the huge glass windows. The Scary Creatures area is most interesting. The layout of the whole area is extremely attractive.

This was one of the best aquariums I have ever been to. The set up is very creative and the displays are awesome. There are huge tanks full of sharks and large fish as well as colorful displays of fish from around Africa.
