We stopped on the spur of the moment and tacked onto a guided tour. We were hooked from the start. Spent a couple of hours mesmerized by the guides knowledge and amazing array of marine life on display. It was an extremely hot day but a lot of what there is to see is under cover. Don't miss this one

We visited when the temperature reached almost 40 degrees, but have yo say the tour was so informative forgot about the heat and flies for a while. Loved seeing the different sharks, so beautiful. A must do if you're visiting the Shark Bay Area.

Regardless as to when you join the tour, as the tour is continuous, taking around 45 to 60 mins, you simply leave the next tour at the point that you joined the original tour. The added advantage is that the tours are carried out by Marine Biologists who are very informative.

Informative guided tour, relaxed atmosphere, wonderful dining - a great day out for young and old alike. Spend as much time as you like at the different attractions and learn about our diverse marine life.

The marine biologist has a continual guided tour through the centre. Wherever you join the tour you can follow on from there until you've completed a full circuit or take a break and comeback anytime to join in again. It takes about an hour or so to see all the creatures. I'm a keen fisherman and I learnt a lot... More

Great for the kids to interact with the fish and turtles, watch the shark feeding and hear about the conservation and future for the area.

Started with a good coffee then an informative and interesting talk by 2 very knowledgeable marine biologists. We learnt a great deal. A must visit when in Denham.

I enjoyed our trip to the Aquarium, despite being a bit under the weather myself (don't cope well with heat). They had a good array of animals, and the animals seemed quite friendly/inquisitive, so would often come close to the edge which gave great photo opportunities. I thought $25 per adult was a fair price, particularly for the area, where... More
