What a fun day for the whole family!!! The two teenagers spent the whole day at the Water Slides and joined us for the Dolphin show. Our 6 year old loved the Aquarium, Seal show and Dolphin show and then spent the rest of his time on the Water Slides.

They have done an amazing job with the setup and scenery for the aquarium, with great attention to detail. The dolphin show was wonderful, as were all the talks and feedings we saw while there.

Dolphins shows are a must for visitors, We watched 3 pm show which was a wonderful experience, dolphins are so smart and clever when you see them performing.

The highlight for us is the Dolphin show and the amazing scenery. We are staying across the road from Ushaka and have had an awesome experience. Plenty of amenities around and very well maintained

The kids had such an amazing time. My only concern is that the food and beverages are very expensive (bottled water R18 for 500ml compared to R6 in a shop). Also, there are no healthy options either.
