While waiting for our flight, we decided to kill a couple of hours at the aquarium and damn near missed our flight! LOL. The staff is very approachable, the displays are very well laid out. It is a bit preachy with the environmental stuff but is to kind of be expected. All in all well worth the 2 to 3 hours that it will take to properly appreciate it in its entirety

This aquarium is surprisingly and unassumingly big! Lots of different exhibits spread across the floors then outdoors are the penguins, sea lions etc. The gift shop is pretty big too lots of selection. We also caught the 4D film on sealife. There’s a cafe too. Only downside was it was a boiling day and didn’t seem to have very strong air conditioning inside.

We visited as two 60+ adults, and after a while, the combined squeals of dozens of small children in school groups or with parents did become quite painful. However, it was lovely to see the otters again- they always look as if they are having such fun.
A pleasant way to spend a couple of hours with children, pobably less for adults.

This is the best place with live animals i have ever been to. They seem to take such good care of the animals who actually seem very happy. There are sea otters, sea lions, and so much more. I loved it here!
