Being a big kid I love the water park, but the aquarium is equally as impressive and is perfect for those winter months. The dolphin and seal shows are great for the kids, while the penguin show is not quite as exciting, although very informative.

Impressed with the range of aquatic creatures in a well presented aquarium set in the body of an old ship. Clean and safe.

Watching the dolphin show was the best moment well spent in ushaka marine and watching those sharks being so close even if its through glass it was an amazing experience. We would'nt hesitate to go back to durban for a holiday its worth it.

An excellent trip with family to spend at this place. A bit expensive though with some of the places charging prices above normal for food and drinks. The dolphin show is the highlight of the place. The entrance cost is a bit high as well.

Lovely place with activities for the entire family. Can become crowded during school holidays so best to visit out of holiday season. They don't allow personal food into the place and they have very limited halaal places to purchase food inside the area
