it's only small so won't occupy more than 30 mins of your time, but our kids absolutely loved it. Plus it's only a charitable donation to get in.

Lovely to see the sealife of the ocean and learn more about it from the very helpful staff. Well worth a visit.

A small aquarium containing tanks of local fish. Free entry but donations welcome. Friendly staff on hand to answer questions. Worth a quick look.

We visit here every week, sometimes more. The fish are local and cared for by the staff, who are friendly and informative. The tanks are spotlessly clean as it’s just reopened for the season. Also freshly painted. I cannot agree with a previous reviewer saying...More

It is free so don’t expect much - just sad fish in dirty smelly glass tanks. The aquarium is very poor and we found it upsetting

This is a free admission aquarium that shows the different types of fish and sea creatures caught in the local waters. Although free, you can leave a donation towards the upkeep of this small aquarium.

Towards the back end of Mevaguissey harbour you will find this attraction. Small, free, and well worth a look, especially if the weather is poor.

Yes it's very small. But it is free (we have a good donation as my son is fish crazy). Lots of local fish and an interesting place to visit. Would recommend if your in the area.

I did see a couple of dogs in there, so I guess they are.

Hello, I know it is open from 10.00 am until 5.00 pm most days, but that may begin from the beginning of April. Sorry I cannot be of any more help as I live in Bristol and have only visited myself.
