  • Some species in small ponds Rubbish in enclosure next to crocodile who was in a very small enclosure The whole place needs updating Small beach at the back not very inviting No staff around if you.....  more »
  • We spent slowly all the afternoon in the institute. All the inside aquariums at the view level ,you have the felling you are inside water with them! Lions’fish, Clowns’fish, sea horses, sea snake.....  more »
  • Not a bad place, but it has 2 major flaws: 1. Aquariums (and water) Are not crystal- transparent. Water looks dirty that spoils all effect. 2. Taxi drivers try to "rob" you, because it's the farthest end and it's hard to get out of there Otherwise, not bad place, although species amount is not very rich.
  • Much bigger than I thought it would be. Many different displays. And all the sea life looked happy and clean.
