Nestled amongst a residential area and in the shadow of the bridge, it seemed as if we were driving in the wrong direction - so bear this in mind when you visit. Very good demonstrations (piranha feed, snakes talk and seals display) and a shark-infested...More

Visited with a 3 and 5 year old. Worst day trip for a very long time. It is vastly overpriced, the whole place is shabby, exhibits limited, little interaction for children, cafe and shop almost larger than the rest of the place! Cafe food appalling....More

First visit and probably last. Have been to other aquariums and this is, by far, the poorest. There is not really that much to see, to the extent I thought we had missed part of it!? It is essentially 1 room with a few fairly...More
