Just what you’d expect from an aquarium, there were tons of fish and some massive tanks, the biggest tank in the country is here with sharks and huge rays it’s very informative and looks brilliant for kids.

The best aquarium I have ever visited for this moment! :) I really spent here very good time and i had fun! :) The best part of the aquarium was the Atlantic ocean with sharks for me. I spent a lot of time there. :))

Took us a morning to see this. It is very well presented and enjoyable to see. The history and educational side of it is really good. Would be great for families. We learnt a lot. A nice museum and we'll set up.

Decided to visit, was not disappointed. Very informative and could have spent all day watching the fish. These two were my favourite 😁

Had a lovely cute date night here! Sometimes they offer a student night which always seems popular handy if you have an nus card!

Lovely walk to the aquarium round the harbour, lovely to see the fish up close with lots of information about each tank. We spent a couple of hours here.
