“Could be more but Cant be missed!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2014

The Underwater World,Pattaya is a typical aquarium with a walk thru the water world displays.....they have some good information and aquatic life but many a displays appeared empty.......for a person who has seen these kind of aquariums it has nothing new to offer but kids and first timers were having a good time! apart from some feeding and petting areas there are not much interactive spots.....but worth a visit....

“Just had a Good Time, But one can experience more”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2014

1. One can enjoy more based on their preference :

a. Walk through the Aquarium [Average Size] & enjoy few unique creatures
b. Adventurous by Diving with Sharks & Rays, feeding them, Holding onto a turtle
c. Feeding Kois with a Milk Bottle

2. Overall Just a Time Pass, since we didn't go for options b & c as mentioned above
and can be disappointing if you have been to world class aquariums before

3. Diving is quite pricy, but the costumes/gears are up-to the standards


Tips:
Please take an appointment one day before for Diving

“5 stars for shark dive, 4 for the rest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2014

This was the first diving experience for my friend and me. Everything everyone says about Steve being a great patient teacher was and is TRUE! He has a calm and gracious way of teaching each individual about what needs to be done to dive successfully for first-timers. For others who have been diving before, this is obviously different, it's in a tank and for a shorter time, but when would you ever get to swim so close and touch marine animals like sharks and turtles. I disagree with another reviewer who said it was disrespectful. I was taught how to touch and pet the animals with gentleness. One way to learn respect for animals is to be with them and appreciate them. I LOVED IT! Communing with God's creation in an unforgettable way! I can't wait to go diving for real in the ocean with many more animals. This experience gave me the confidence that I can do it! (yes, even me a person who isn't a great swimmer) The water tunnel for viewing was quite long and nicely organized with different tanks in between sections, nicely displayed with Thai and English signage. Yes, it is smaller than other places (Singapore, Bangkok) but this is Pattaya, have fair expectations for a smaller place that's just offering an experience for those traveling there already.

“Value is terrible.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2014 via mobile

We were so looking forward to visit Underwater World and we're very disappointed. The cost is ridiculous.
Many of the tanks/enclosures were nearly empty or empty. It is a very short walk through. We did check everything out and it only took us 15-20 min. I do not recommend this excursion. Spend your money elsewhere.

“Tank diving,two tanks and feel the fish up close & personal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014

Steve, the trainer gives you all the low down on how to touch,play,feed some of the fish, turtles, sting rays in the two tank dive and in second tank dive you get to feed the sting rays and groups of fish while being view from all the people out side the tanks. Great for young and the old. Don't miss this while your in pattaya. Great for the whole family. Great service and they make it a special moment to remember.
