  • I expected more from this place overall dissatisfied from the moment we entered we were given a look of interrogation about our daughters age just because of her height and her being only 10 even...  more »
  • Such a waste of time and money, I have been to better free aquariums. Actually there’s more to see at Tesco fishmonger. The one star they do deserve is the rescued sea turtle. The staff are nice too.  more »

  • Very good displays with some open topped displays to allow the watching of fish from above. There is a good selection of species, including lion fish, sea horses, sharks, and many tropical species along with local species. Too much to list really, and the building was not a large as expected, so it is well set out. An enjoyable visit and recommend if you're visiting Newquay.
  • It's quite small but there is a surprising amount to see. There's a sweet octopus(I love octopuses, me) and a tunnel with sharks and a sea turtle. You can pop back in all day once you have a ticket too so you can check out the talks and feedings.
