A peaceful under water experience. If one needs to get up close and personal with the owners of the sea, Ushaka is the place to visit.

A really good aquarium. The dolphin show was entertaining (although a little low on real education, felt like it was for little kids) and the dolphins themselves were great fun. Aquarium was excellent, loads to see, we spent ages watching the crayfish fighting over some...More

Nice place, wasn't crowded at all when we went. Love that the aquarium is built into a ship. Good prices for food we found but the entrance fee was a little steep. Nice for a once-off but unlikely I'll go again
