This may not be the largest aquarium I have ever been to but I have to admit it is so well done. The sharks are incredible and also you must take time and watch the penguin feeding. It is a memorable experience.

Value for your money. The whole family will really enjoy all the marine creatures. My daughter and I loved the jelly fish tanks and colorful shark tanks.

It’s been some time since I’ve been there but it’s very interesting and I’m dying to visit again. Something that most ppl will never see is available in beautiful tanks and loads of educational things for kids.

If you’ve been to table mountain and want something quick and downtown, this may help kill some time. Pretty average
