  • Children loved the experience. Really neat and clean. We got to take some cool photos which you can purchase. The best part was watching the divers feed the sharks and the Penguins walking and swimming around. Lots of fun. Will definitely go back again soonest.
  • Great place to go for young and old. Shows teach everybody something about the ocean and individual stations allow you to explore. The children have a play area that is well suited for learning while playing. Unfortunately a bit small and no attractions like dolphins or whales but arguably it is better to take a short ride on a boat to see these in their natural habitat.
