To just sit and watch the marine life is mesmerizing, to stand under the huge tank of wonderful fish, stingrays, sharks is just fabulous, its like swimming underwater without getting wet! An enjoyable few hours.

Well worth a visit very interesting and lots to see with opportunities to see the fish being fed and the staff very helpful with lots of knowledge about the various tanks. I am going back again this weekend with friends who are visiting the area.

We visited last weekend with the grand children, and we all loved it. Fabulous viewing points to see the sharks, sting ray, and turtles swimming above us, below us, and up close. The signs on the tanks were difficult to read in the low light...More
