This is a very popular attraction at the southern end of the main beach area of the city. As the name suggests it is mainly about marine animal displays but also offers a range of shops restaurants gift shops and water play areas for children, including a flume which circles the park and is very popular with children. It also opens right onto the beach

Middle of the week visit, we arrived early as we were staying nearby, we were sadly greeted by a number of thrill seekers of a bygone era on the beach promenade. We prepurchased our combo tickets which made entry a breeze. Having arrived early there were no queues to speak of. We made use of the locker facilities offered at a reasonable rate for the day. All slides were in good condition, lifeguards were on standby were required. The facilities were well kept & clean. Time permitting, I would recommend a visit for the day as we spent more time in the aquarium than in the sun.

My family absolutely enjoyed this place. We ended up spending the whole day here and cancelling many plans. The Dolphin Show and Dangerous Creatures was the highlight of this place. Would have tried snorkelling but was too scared, it looked like so much fun though.

An early Sunday morning visit to the Ushaka Marine World down on Durban's Point waterfront with 2 small grandchildren, turned out to be a wonderful way to have fun and also spend quality time together learning. The tickets are pricey for a family outing with two small ones under 5, but once older I guess as a full day outing, enjoying all of the Ushaka amenities, it might be worthy of the high price tag.
The endless shops and eateries on the amble down from the parking lot to the aquarium (which is down on the beachfront promenade) is like any other small mall with nothing different or unique. The aquarium itself is cleverly housed in an "upturned ship" and I must add that I was impressed by the overall care and maintenance here, as far too many of our favourite tourist attractions in South Africa are neither well managed nor well maintained.
Feeding time was fun for the kids and we also watched the mid morning seal show which was also enjoyable. Glad the emphasis is being placed on teaching this next generation to keep our oceans clean!! There are well-versed guides to assist if you should require any extra info.
We didn't manage the Dangerous Creatures or the Water Park with our two little ones, but once older, pretty sure they will enjoy those too one day.
We visited out of high-season which made for a pleasant outing, but for those attempting to vising in peak season, I would highly recommend an early start in the day before the masses descend!

Lots of things to do, Aquarium, Water World and plenty of shops and eateries. Would definitely recommend it. Go and visit the penguins afterwards - too cute!
