Great Great Great Aquarium! !!!! This was my first time back in about 15 years, it's only gotten bigger and better. They now have two whale sharks in their big aquarium!! It's a great set up with all the exhibits surrounding the huge circular aquarium that allows you to spiral down giving you views of the big aquarium at different depths. They really have a lot to see, too much to name, but recommend anyone living here or vacationing to come see this place. It's super cool!
Great aquarium. It's possible to get a combination ticket with the Ferris Wheel, so if both are on your list, it's a great deal. The inside of the aquarium follows a nice path of more than 800m. It takes you along all the tanks, containing some wonderful animals. It's also pretty cool seeing the divers in action, cleaning up the tank and such. You can definitely spent around 3 hours here. Tip: it sounds tempting to start taking pictures when you first arrive at the main tank (with the wailshark) but since it's the main tank, you walk around it plenty often on multiple floors, with even better photo possibilities!
A good aquarium, some great sized tanks. It was very busy on a Saturday with many children and queues. There was the occasional quiet area but these were far and few between. The otters hunting amongst real shoals of fish was amazing. The Pacific Ocean tank was massive but still on the small size for huge whale shark. The jellyfish dark area was ethereal. Worth a visit possibly in the evening when it should be quieter!
The aquarium design is awesome. There is enough room to film and take photo. Most aquarium, you need to fight for space to take pictures. This one has a lot of opportunities to take good pictures. Around the area is a family mall. You will see a lot of young kids. Be prepared.
Very clean and thoughtfully designed. We had a great time here, only wished we came a bit earlier to beat the crowd. Search for feeding times a head of time so you can see your favorite aquatic creature in action. Some of the animals such as seals and penguins can be seen without glass barrier and only a few feet away.
