Though this aquarium is quite small it has been extensively renovated and a terrific central exhibit has been added. This is the ‘Tunnel’, a 10 meter long glass underwater walk. It is thrillingly immersive. Right outside the tunnel is giant cod in its own large tank. Some of the other fish you can expect to see here include sharks, piranhas, cuttlefish, seahorses, dolphins, eel and colorful tropical fish. If you’re inclined to scuba dive around Phuket, the aquarium has some good resources on what you should expect to see in the waters surrounding the island. The aquarium’s other main task is to conduct marine biological research, and to breed sea turtles.

Nice little aquarium, good place to visit if you’re looking for something to do other than drink or sit on the beach! Good information provided and a large variety of fish and aquatic species. Not too big, we spend about 40 minutes there to see everything. Well worth the entrance fee though. Quite clean and well maintained.
We had a great time here. It's small but the animals seem to be well taken care of. Its clean and also affordably priced. I took my kids here and they enjoyed it. The talking mermaid was a huge hit. Worth checking out if you have the time.
Small, but nice. Don't confuse it with huge places like Sydney Aquarium, this one takes 10-20 minutes. Price is fine - about 150 adult, 100 kids (October 2018). Beautiful views of the ocean with islands.
Amazing place if like me you enjoy seeing aquatic life, giant groupers as jellyfish are among a few of the highlights along with some very healthy discus, the turtle sanctuary is under construction so we didn't get to see any turtles which is the main reason I went but I'll be making a visit once it is open
Although newly renovated, the aquarium didn't seem to be well maintained. There were a variety of fish and shellfish to look at. But unfortunately it made me uncomfortable to look at some of the fish which was kept in such tiny environments, with murky seemingly unkept water conditions. We spent about 40 minutes inside and then decided to leave.
