Only a small premise but well run. Staff are friendly and welcoming and knowledgeable particularly the owner. Its biggest plus is the touch pool which will bring people back.

Popped in when it was raining and ended up staying a good hour maybe more. Wasn't expecting it to be so good. Lots of local sea creatures. Don't expect massive sharks etc it's more about the local coastline but I enjoyed it.
