  • Large glass-fronted tanks with well lit exhibits. The building is on several levels so must be very strong! The lighting is better than on the naturally lit reef. The restaurant has good food. Well done guys.
  • Very well thought out and laid out aquarium. Highly educational and interesting talks given throughout the day, well worth attending. Plenty of opportunities for added extras you can pay for such as behind the scenes tours etc. The turtle rehab centre looks great for example and is very reasonable. They feed the animals in the exhibits at many of the talks which is really fascinating. We zipped through in 3.5 hours but you could easily spend more time.
