Cheap aquarium to spend an hour or so. I gave it three stars purely based on the fact that cape panwa has nothing else to offer as far as attractions are concerned and we had nothing better to do that day. If you have visited big and fancy aquariums in the States or Europe, don't hold your breath. Dirty and... More

A small and quaint aquarium. This is a nice place to go if you've had too much sun and need a good way to spend a couple hours. The place is small but there is a lot to see and read if you take the time. The fish tanks and interior building space were clean. Although, the outside area needs... More

Had a nice morning with our 6 month old baby and a three year old toddler: as it was only nine in the morning, we had the place to ourselves. Our toddler was well exited over the blacktip reef sharks and the giant electric eel they have on display.

I would say very interesting place and would've gave it 5 stars, the fish tanks looked all very clean and there was alot of good info around the place, sadly my only problem with this place is they tell you throughout the whole aquarium the importance to not have litter lying about as the effect it's having on the environment...

Intermediate experience. Sad fish. Dirty aquariums. Only interesting things ware the giant baramundi and some coral fish...but you can just get a mask and fins and snorkel in front of the aquarium. Overall fair experience. My daughter (8 y.o.) shares this opinion.

We stayed within walking distance so spent a couple hours walking through. Bigger than I expected with useful information. Small admission fee. Very quiet until 3 buses of children came in. We just sat on a bench until they passed and enjoyed the rest of our visit. Worth a stop if you're in the area, but wouldn't make the trip... More

Small but very nice aquarium. Lots of sea inhabitants. Really interesting hot day activity with kids. Beautiful seascapes around.

I really enjoyed this aquarium, the creatures we saw here are so unlike any in the aquariums back home that it was mesmerising. We particularly enjoyed seeing the turtles at the end. You left feeling like you had really learned a lot too. Only thing I would say is it's irritating and quite cheeky that as tourists we were charged... More
