I love sea life creatures and was looking forward to this, the queue went down quickly, the experience took under an hour to do, it isn’t a big place but enjoyed it was just expecting a little more. more »
Very good displays with some open topped displays to allow the watching of fish from above. There is a good selection of species, including lion fish, sea horses, sharks, and many tropical species along with local species.

It's quite small but there is a surprising amount to see. There's a sweet octopus(I love octopuses, me) and a tunnel with sharks and a sea turtle. You can pop back in all day once you have a ticket too so you can check out the talks and feedings.
