I always forget how small this place is but it is very enjoyable and the seal show is great. If you have young kids you might want to go through twice as they seem to rush ahead.

The seal show was the best thing I have seen in a while. It was funny and amusing to watch and the seals are very clever. The underwater tunnel was another great thing to experience. Great for the kids to learn and explore.

We where in town for a family long weekend and this is a must to go visit. We have an 1.8 month old and she loved it. The attractions are excellent and the staff helpful. If your staying in a hotel you should be able to get a discount voucher from reception to save some money.

We have went quite a few times over our lives to Underwater world, now we take our 4 year old son, he has been once before a few years ago. This is more for kids but we still enjoyed it. The man at the petting area on entry was very knowledgeable on the rare turtles and shark population versus crocodile,... More

Overall was a little underwhelmed ! They do have beautiful displays of the beautiful sea life, but it just needed more. We paid about $130 for a family of 4 and we were out in about 3 hrs. There needs to be more interaction for the younger kids, the seal show was great and funny, but they could have got... More

The seal show is a must if you have small kids, although there is some 'humour' for adults (make sure you get there 30 minutes before a show if you want a good seat). The jelly fish displays were a surprise and quite impressive in their variety and the scale of some displays (with 100+ jelly fish in one tank).... More

A daytime outing with the grandchildren became a treat for the whole family. Don't miss the fabulous Sea Lion show! A touch on the expensive side for a large family. But a excellent two hours!

A very well presented and organised operation and fun for the whole family. Educational and entertaining this venue offers challenging tests for children to learn about sea life and the environment. Even without children it's a good experience for adults. Recommended.
