Very disappointed in the aquarium. Thought it was very overpriced for a family of 4. Took 15 minutes to walk around. Quite tatty. Only plus was we could take the dog in.

Friendly atmosphere where questions are welcomed. Staff have good knowledge. A lot of interesting facts to learn about especially the huge lobster caught locally.

It's small but cheap to get in and great to see the local sealife. Saw blue lobster and a huge crawfish. Recommended.

This is a hidden gem and the kids loved it. So nice to go somewhere so "local" and informative. Beats a Sea life centre hands down. We love Fowey and this is one of the reasons why!
