“Sadly still under renovations”
Reviewed 15 September 2012

Sadly for us it was still under renovations. They did fairly enough advise us this and gave a discounted rate. Still to be recommended
Will need to go again next visit.

“Pretty lame”
Reviewed 9 September 2012

We were pretty disappointed in this attraction - it was super expensive for what was essentially a few fish in small aquariums. The seal show was the best part and kind of made it worth it. But our kids were bored by the whole experience and so were we. The aquarium is in a series of really run down buildings and you are directed through gift shops the whole time which is just wearing and annoying when you have kids in tow. Kelly Tarltons in Auckland leaves this place for dead - and it is around the same price. We went to one talk and the woman said - oh I forgot my microphone, never mind... So she didn't do the talk just fed the turtles a couple of prawns with her back to us and then left! We couldn't believe it. The shark tank was shut - maybe if it had been open it would have been better.

“Do not waste your time and money”
Reviewed 9 September 2012

this is one big rip off from start to finish. the attractions are limited with the main attraction under repair.. despite this fact they charged us $77 for 2 adults and a child. the place is run down and over comercialised. instead of providing a educational or interesting place to visit, they try and upsell at every opportunity and then when the kids are bored (should not take long) the only exit is the gift shop with no clear way out. a dissapointing and ripped off experience all round.

Being a big fan of aquariums we were very excited to visit this one. Unfortunately the shark tank and moving walkway were closed which turned it into a very boring day out for our children. The seal show was excellant though.

“Funny Seal Show”
Reviewed 7 September 2012

Shark complex closed (September) - seal show funny, a lovely morning but quite expensive (I think about $98 AU) which was about 1 1/2 hours entertainment. Be aware, the Seal Kiss offered for $10 sounds great, but does not include the photo that they take.
