Even in winter this place is worth going to!! A good place to relax, and enjoy the kids really learning about the sea … and the parents :D

The location of the aquarium is perfectly tucked in next to the ocean. You can have a lovely stroll before coming to the park which is approximately 30 minutes walk from downtown. The entrance fee was very descent for the number of attractions inside. There are large displays of sharks and fish within the aquarium itself, peppered with smaller tanks of jellyfish and anemones etc. there are outdoor settings to watch seal shows, dolphin shows, penguin, shark feedings and stingrays. There are many kiosks selling food and beverages along the way. If you have children there are children play areas as well as a water world for an additional cost. You can not bring your own food and beverages into the park and they check bags as you enter. I did not go to water world but it looked fun passing by with a lazy river inner tube
Area, water slides and much more. It was clean and well organized.

Had a very tasty chicken burger with chips, service was fast and friendly, best part is the beachfront right outside :)

Although I visitee Ushaka marine world at about 3pm in the afternoon. Food was more or less localized which perhaps wasn't too good enough for visitors trom other countries. Artifacts should have been à combination of both local and international. Ushaka however, is a place that reserve à second visit.
