Not really knowing what to expect at the end of a dirt road we were fairly sceptical about how good the aquarium would be from outside and expected to spend no more than an hour there..

A fantastic visit, a great education, some amazing photographs, superb views, and a very good coffee at the end of it all we finally left about 3 hours later.

Groups are taken round the various indoor tanks and given a lot of information from well informed guides (ours was a marine biologist from Netherlands) who are happy to answer any and all questions.

There is an amazing variety of marine life for visitors to see, each with it's own unique story. Plenty of opportunities to get some great photographic shots of animals in a relatively natural habitat.

The outdoor pools were another source of amazement. Huge variety of fish to be told about, and perfect amount of detail from the guides that we weren't left on information overload.

The shark pool is also a superb experience. With a number of varieties from local waters, being able to be so close to such magnificent animals being fed is a true honour.

The aquarium visit was one of the highlights of my visit to the area. Visiting at off season we weren't too lucky seeing the "big 5" in their natural environment, which made seeing them all in the aquarium a particular bonus.

Loved the Ocean Park Aquarium. Each time we visit there is something new to look at. We always learn about the local animals. The setting is gorgeous. View magnificent. Looking forward to seeing the little fishes grow up for dinner at another visit. children learn so much from first hand experiences.

The shark feeding was superb. Up close to some very large teeth!!! The staff are very knowledgeable and have great customer service. This is obviously a new business however with a group of young guys with ambition I am sure it will go far. Great coffee with a great view. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.
