“Disgraceful”
Reviewed 20 January 2014

This has got to be one of the worst 'attractions' in Guernsey. Clearly the place is in dire need of a huge money injection and to charge people to look at the pitiful display of fish is beyond me. A real blot on our landscape and yet it has the potential to be so much more if only it had financial backing. The location and surrounding area are great - such a shame.

“Outdated and really just a glorified petshop”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

This place is not worth £4.75, its not even worth 75p in my view. Its old fashioned, incredibly dated and in need of a massive amount of money spent to bring it up to date. The place itself is very tired, dark and most of the info is out of date on the tanks. Its basically just a small tourist trap added onto a pet shop. Really disappointed and advise you to stay away!

“Poor, old fashioned and in need of an upgrade.”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

Poor displays and very much in need of an upgrade this "tourist" attraction is a little embarrassing to be honest.

Nothing different from other aquariums I have seen which is a shame because with all the beautiful waters around Guernsey it could be so much better.

“Tired and expensive”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

When there are no other aquariums in Guernsey, this monopoly excels at over-pricing for a poor experience.

It really needs to upgrade or close.

“Guernsey Aquarium”
Reviewed 20 November 2013

Sadly this is not worth a visit, it is very dark and smelly and certainly not worth the entrance fee.
