A small but charming aquarium making a big splash as Europe's first catch and release aquarium. Our animals are brought in to us by local fishermen, divers and families and are returned to the sea every couple of weeks, so you can guarantee that no...more

We really liked this as it’s a catch and release aquarium. They display wildlife they have caught locally and release it back unharmed. Professor plankton was great and captivated my nine year old with looking at wiggly small things down a microscope. Also Octopus and...More

Good concept but for 5 adults not very interesting, may be more suited for children, 20 mins in here is enough for grown-ups. Several dark dirtyish tanks with mostly non moving sea urchins, starfish, barnicles etc (better to see them in rock pools) a few...More

A really nice aquarium which despite being fairly small still has a good variety of local creatures. My daughter loved the touch pool session and holding the different creatures.

Visited with my 10yr old and we were in and out in 15 mins. Very small and not great value for money. I know the ticket is valid all day but I’m not sure why you would re-visit. Maybe something to do if it rains...More

Visited with 3 pre-teens and I had to drag them away. It is small but it is so packed with information that it could be four times the size. Their staff were very well informed, super friendly and very enthusiastic. The kids arrived at handling...More
