Spent a wonderful afternoon looking at the penguins diving. Also otters were cheeky. The aquarium is quite large with some good information on the variety of sea life. Highly recommended. Coffee shop and souvenirs available, friendly staff.

Very different to what we have in England. Some absolutely beautiful fish and sea creatures here! Loved the penguins too! The Ottas didn't come out to play they were still very cute. Very good place to take the kids on a rainy day!

If. I remember correctly the price was 13 euros but I think there is a family ticket and slightly less for OAP's.
