This is a small aquarium but has some lovely local fish specimens which are so interesting to see.we spent only an hour and saw everything we wanted to see. It is a cool place away from the hot sun and well worth a visit. Not expensive either. Some very interesting fishes from local waters.

It's a nice little aquarium. Good coral reef tanks. And they have fluorescent corals which is cool/unusual. At 3pm the turtles get fed. I enjoyed it. It's pretty small though and the dugongs is just some historical stuff re how they were mistaken for mermaids

This aquarium is fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Even though it is smaller than Australian aquariums it was better because you had time to look in each tank without people rushing you through. This aquarium releases its fish every 6 months and captures new ones so that any fish they have is only ever contained for 6 months of its... More

This is a smallish aquarium but there are so many species of fish, grouped and so well presented in the individual tanks. The lighting and backdrops make you feel you are actually in the reefs and shoals off shore (brilliant for non-swimmers and non-snorkellers). Great for adults and children alike. Main aquarium is flat, easy walking and there is a... More

This is a small Aquarium but lots to see. Sharks, turtles, sea horses, Starfish and many colourful fish. We were there for the turtles being fed. We did this in combination of a city tour.
