When you have had enough of lying on the beach, swimming in the sea and eating and drinking, why not try visiting this attraction. It is not cheap but is a cool and relaxing place to amble through. If you have kids, this is also a worthy education trip. It is well laid out and very well documented. There is... More

Brilliant attraction. Great for families and anyone interested in the sea. The seal show is great. Fantastic little gift shop with good priced souvenirs. Great food and a fun day out.

This is a fabulous place to enjoy and learn about the broad range of creatures inhabiting the shallow seas and rivers. The large number of aquaria display a broad range of sea life including anemones, jellyfish, seahorses, heaps of different fish - including sharks and rays, lungfish, reptiles and amphibians, and seals. The highlight for us was the tunnel with... More

My Partner and I visited Underwater World with his little sister (14). We all thoroughly enjoyed the entire place as a whole. It was both entertaining and educational for kids. We paid for a Snorkel with the Shark experience for our little sister, she loved it! And we got to watch from within the Shark tunnel the entire time. We... More

Out dated and over priced. I took my sister, my 7 year old niece and my 14 year old son here for what I thought would be a great day out. Everything looked old, tired and worn out, including the animals. For the price you pay you expect at least clean and tidy. Instead you get shabby and out dated.... More

Went with my brother and sister and partners all around the 20s. First time I had been there in over 5 years. The amount of marine life is great and I think young kids would love it. Some very interesting things to see and do but got through it in around 2 hours. Didn't get to see the seal show... More

We took our grandchildren to Underwater World and we enjoyed our visit very much. There were many positives as the exhibits were well presented and the seal show was great. The only negative was due to the weather as the cafe was not air conditioned and it was nothing short of a sauna. If the weather is good everything would... More

Decided to go to escape the heatwave and had a better time than we thought. Surprisingly bigger and more equipped than we have it credit for. Great for little kids. A bit expensive for what it is but hopefully the money is being donated back to the upkeep of the animals

We visited today with our 18 month old and it's changed since our last visit a few years ago. Everyone that we came across that works here is lovely. In particular there was a lady that was working near the touch tanks that was really lovely with our son! We have annual membership at SeaWorld and the difference in experience... More
