  • Don’t let the small aquarium put you off. This was a fantastic way to spend an hour. The tour guide was excellent - funny, knowledgeable and clearly passionate about his craft.  more »
  • Very enjoyable and well worth a visit. Knowledgable and friendly staff. Small local operation that deserves support.  more »

  • As others have said it's a small aquarium but Daniel's knowledge and enthusiasm more than make up for that. He spoke at length about the sea life local to the area and the kids never lost interest. They got to hold a starfish, touch a baby shark and where squirted at by a scallop! A much more interactive experience than some of the bigger aquariums we've been to, one they won't forget. They also loved the gift shop!
  • Absolutely the best aquarium I have been to. the guy who explained all, was unreal in his knowledge of the local aquatic life. child friendly and language that everyone could understand. would definitely be back next year
