  • We visited the aquarium with a 3 year old and he absolutely loved it! I have to say the adults loved it too. It is not a big place but we still managed to stay for over an hour. I would recommend arriving for opening at 10am as the feeding of the animals started straight away which was very enjoyable to see. The staff were very friendly and there was lots of opportunity to hold or touch different animals. The staff were very informative about why the animals had been rescued and what the plan for release into the wild was. They clearly care a lot about all of the animals.
  • Amazing little place with plenty of well looked after species. It's not very big, but is priced accordingly. Animals are all in great health and you can see the people working there really care and are very knowledgeable about all of the animals. You're able to handle many of the reptiles too.
