This is a great little aquarium with interesting exhibits big and small, really informative boards by the tanks explaining all about them, the highlight was the feeding time when a diver with a bucket of fish appeared and fed the sting ray, shark and assorted relations to each other. The groupers were enormous too! I wouldn't necessarily recommend driving across the island to visit here, but if you are local and it's a bit overcast then well worth a visit. You can also walk outside to see the turtle tanks.
They highlighted the environmental concerns of plastics but then had plastic stirrers and plastic water bottles in the shop!

Definitely worth a visit. The aquarium has lots to see but some of the tanks looked a little neglected & could have done with a clean. Unfortunately the aqua dome was closed. The thing that made it for us was the incredible turtle rescue Center attached!! The staff looked after them back to health incredibly well, immaculate tanks (mid water change as we went round) & they all have access to a variety of food/ health care if needed. It would have been nice to have been provided a little more about the turtles, but we all agreed it was lovely to see the hard work going in to rehabilitating the turtles. Why do they not advertise this bit more?!

A great spot for family travel, we went there due to the rainy day. The aquarium provides different information about sea animals. It is not too crowded and it is good for us to travel together with a 2 year old kid. The aquarium is not too big and the ticket price is considered a bit too high.

This aquarium has quite a lot of construction and will be pretty great in a few years. We saw lots of things we don’t see at home( which was neat) but some tanks were kind of pathetic. Too big fish in too small tanks. I’m happy they have the turtle and soon Dugong rescue program, but they need to upgrade some of those small tanks for the big fish. Nice area to sit out back on the patio, nice ocean walk around Panwa lookout, not much to eat nearby, take water it’s hot and humid.

In this age of concern for animal welfare, especially when those animals are in confinement, this place falls well short of the mark. It is cheap to enter (THB180 for foreigners, THB50 for citizens), but even then it is not worth the money. Most of the exhibits were small tanks with a few fake rocks and almost no vegetation. One tank (about 1m3) contained some sort of ray with no vegetation, no fake rocks, nothing. Just water. If you are concerned about animal welfare, show your support for the animals by stirring clear of this place. The Shedd Aquarium it is not!

We enjoyed our visit to this well organised aquarium. The emphasis throughout the exhibits was on education - particularly on environmental issues. A welcome surprise was the previous double pricing for foreigners had been corrected and I hope this will become the pattern elsewhere in Thailand. Set aside around one and a half hours for the visit

Lovely little aquarium. Affordable entry fee. Glad to see that locals can get in for very little to learn about their local environment. Not flashy but well done.

If you are happy to pay over 100% more because you are a foreigner,Then go and enjoy.
But if you do not agree with the duel pricing in Thailand give it a wide berth and take your atm somewhere else.

A not so big aquarium at Cape Panwa.
Since this place is under the supervision of government agencies, so the price is reasonable with what you can see inside.
I enjoyed this place despite not expecting anything.
I like the Giant Groupers tank the most.
