“Short and sweet”
Reviewed 3 May 2013

This aquarium is easy to miss unless you're looking for it because it's actually located in the back of a gas station. I believe the town is Maribago and along the main strip (Mactan Circumferance Rd). Nothing spectacular here, but fun for kids and maybe a romantic stroll to take some pics. Many small exhibits inside and several larger ones outside. Very affordable ($1-$2) and takes about 30 minutes out of your day. At the end of tour, there is a kid's room where they can watch a video and draw pictures, but for me, the sharks were kinda cool.

“Nice little aquarium”
Reviewed 24 January 2013

This aquarium is very small and it doesn't take long to go though it. But it was still a nice place to visit and my daughter loved it! The guide was very good and seemed to know exactly what she was talking about. There´s also an area where children can sit and draw afterwards.

“Nice little aquarium”
Reviewed 28 May 2012

I liked the fact that our guide appeared to be generally very knowledgable as well as sincerely interested in the fish/water life as well as the ecosystem. Certainly worth a few hours.

“A little knowledge”
Reviewed 30 November 2011

If you are not a diver, you should visit this place to come closer to the marine creatures. Most importantly, you can see black-tip sharks and turtles close up, of course with glass panel. Free guide attached to explain about the features of these creatures, their habitat and they are willing to clear any of your doubts.
