This a small run down aquarium 30 minutes from Phuket Town. The variety of marine life is average at best & I just can't recommend this as a place to visit unfortunately

The aquarium is very well maintained, clean and a huge variety of fish to see. They have kiddie shows twice an hour.

Tho the Aquarium is quite small but it's well maintained. For the price of 180 baht per adult it's alright to hv an explore here. Informative for kids.

Felt bad for fishes as the tanks looked stained with algae. All aquariums had similar lightening irrespective of different fishes and their habitat. Some fishes were too shy to come out and were scared when people passed by, esp. puffer fish was puffed in a...More

Just to let you know as in some reviews, photos and comments, there is now no baby turtle nursery or turtle sanctuary. It has been moved to an outer island, unfortunately I am unsure where and have been unable to find out much more information...More
