Beautiful Aquamarine, you really get your money worth when you visit this magical place. To see marine life and how good people are helping to sustain Marine life and provide awareness to people to better take care of the environment to help in taking care of our beautiful ocean and the marine life that lives in our waters.

The exhibits were masterful and the facility is amazing. There were many mediums represented and pieces from SA and around the world. It was just enough. Something exciting around every corner but not so long that you felt drained and overwhelmed.

Quick and easy access on the App which I had to download. Easy payment and immediately received the vouchers I paid for. At the entrance the vouchers were scanned from my phone and went in in no time.

Great experience, especially for kids, they love the tube by clown fish The extry is quick if you booked your ticket online. We were in high season so queues were a bit long, but moving fast.

The kids enjoyed Sharks and jellyfish and all other kinds of fishes
