  • Wow, this is most definitely one of the most beautiful and biggest aquarium I've ever been to in the world. It is massive, although it is a bit smaller then the stock photo's want you to believe...  more »
  • It was an extremly positive experience! We really enjoyed the visit from the very first moment. It was Friday afternoon, no crowds, everyone was following the rules, the staff was nice and helpful.....  more »
  • A very nice aquarium. Convenient parking, correct Corona protocols. People who appreciate well-preserved, REAL coral riffs will absolutely love this place. Don't just run through it, sit down, lean back, read the signs and enjoy. Some things can be done a little bit better. But all in all a great experience, highly recommend.
  • We visited today and the aquarium is really impressive. It's huge and has many exhibits and a lot of sea animals to discover. It was not busy when we visited (on a Friday). They really took good measurements against covid-19. There is disinfectant gel everywhere and we saw people cleaning all the time. Note though the restaurants are currently closed so bring your own picnic. We spent approx 5 hours here.
