This is by far one of my favourite hang-out spots in Durban. The aquarium lay-out is AMAZING and certainly of high international standard. Entertaining for kids, groups of friends, families, even solo visitors looking to escape a hectic day. It is tranquil and dark yet full of life. The staff are great too. One could get lost in here for hours.

Sent a happy few hours here looking around the aquarium and watching the shows. Be warned - the shows like to ask for volunteers so be prepared to get stuck in! One down side - no food or drink is allowed to be taken in, so you have to eat the food on offer there - when we visited, some of the food was sold out, (even though it was off-peak), and prices were a little expensive. The food we did buy wasn't great either. Otherwise, a great day. A tip - we bought a 'combination ticket' for the aquarium and wet & wild together - cheaper and both worth a visit.

It is a beautiful place :)
The exhibit is arranged in such a clever way that will immediately transport you into the marine life.
Don't miss the dolphins show! It is great ;)!

Easily the best aquarium in Africa. From the wrecked vessel theme, the helpful and informative staff, the interactive format, to the variety of sea life on display, its a no brainer visiting Sea World Aquarium.

The snorkeling lagoon experience was a major highlight and great fun.

Go for it, you will not be sorry.
