We booked our tickets online as they were cheaper and were able to use them on any day of our trip. The fish were amazing and we arrived in time to see the Penguins being fed. The staff were very friendly and took time to answer any questions that were asked. It was an enjoyable experience for both adults and... More

Exhibits were broader and more in depth than I expected. Very educational with a strong focus on the environment. Many kids were there from ages 5-14.

Children thoroughly enjoyed this experience. They were very impressed with the penguins and the sharks. Gifts were reasonably priced in the shop too.

This is a pretty decent aquarium. Good range of sea life, both local and exotic my 8 and ,5 year olds loved it. You also get access to the play area, which when we went included face painting, bubble making and an autopsy on a squid!

The latest reviews sum this attraction up very well; it's extensive, well laid out, good variety of creatures, and the staff are great. Only criticism is that the cafe facilities are poorly organised to cause a bottleneck at the coffee/ till area.

Brilliant aquarium with a massively wide range of creatures in a great variety of settings (walk through tunnel, shark tank, penguin viewing gallery etc.), which maintains interest. The touch pool is great fun and the aquarium has an impressive approach to conservation.

This is a great place to visit. The staff are extremely helpful and full of smiles. In particular, Jack was so informative and gave a great overview of the penguins during their feeding time. We had a 5 year old who loved every minute there. We left for a few hours and returned again later as the entry ticket is... More
