Nice layout. Lots of different sea life. Clean and big. Good for school projects. Each time a pleasure to visit. Also very romantic during the week when there are not a lot of people.

I went with my teenage son. It was a fun outing. There's a nice conservation message, which helps give a feel that this is not about exploiting animals.

An excellent and beautiful marine theme park. You get lost here experiencing water rides, dolphin shows, seal & penguin shows. And walk with every sea creature, all caged. Simply amazing
