Although it is a small aquarium, the visit was an exciting experience thanks to Richard, the very charismatic guide who gave us much information about the species they own. They had sharks, but not large, and the most loving part was that we were allowed...More

If you are anywhere near please call in. It's fairly small, they are working hard to provide education and help ecology. Please give them some cash - they deserve it. It's a great place for a short stop and you can see the exhibits easily....More

This place is a total rip off. There are a few small tanks with tropical fish and a couple of larger ones. There is no "shark" although it is advertised. It takes less than 15 minutes to go round and is not worth even 25...More

The aquarium is very small for a maximum of 35 min visit. You have to go through on your own but the names of the fish are labelled which helped to identify the exact names of fish which we used to see while snorkeling. The...More
