  • Not very big. Some tanks are empty. Still a nice experience and enjoyable to walk through the tunnel with fish swimming around you and overhead. N$10 per adult. N$5 per child. That's basically for free. Restrooms not very clean.
  • It was great to see a Shark ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ. This was the best experience ever, it was relaxing. The music in the background made the experience worth it. Will definitely go back. ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿณ
