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!

uShaka Marine World overs everything, from dolphin show to sharks cage diving and feeding the stingrays. Educational and also just a joy to watch all. Was freezing the day I went but still the staff was friendly and made sure I had a great time. Thank you, next time I’m in Durban, I will definitely go and visit again.
