We loved the whole place. The mermaids were an added bonus for the holidays which my daughter loved. The jelly fish were a highlight too. We had lunch in the cafe too which was surprising lovely and reasonably priced. We cant fault any of it. Great place for all ages. More...
Very educational experience. The children loved it, all questions were answered with a straight face and nothing was too much to accommodate
Miranda Halfajob Clarke-semmens
Great attraction for adults and kids alike, lots of little bits to do and a nice big cafe. The place is quite well thought out but there are a few pokey corners that aren’t so great for the volume of strollers being pushed around, but nonetheless a lot of thought has gone into this place. The kids really enjoyed the mermaid show and meeting the mermaid, the jellyfish and the tunnel area. Staff are helpful and friendly. Absolutely worth a visit or 2. More...
June Angela Good
its really good . me an my son enjoyed are selves.
Lovely place, clearly love the fish and animals they care for and have a passion for conservation and improving aquatic environments. Great educational talk. However it is a small place with limited things to see and do which I’m not sure justify’s the cost of entry. Having said that the cafe was reasonably priced and had a free soft play and the gift shop had something for all budgets More...
Ian N Julie Whetton
Absolutely fantastic diving with sharks experience, very professional and a great team whether your a novice or certified diver. Highly recommend it, not cheap but definitely worth it. More...
Nice little aquarium, good soft play, and gift shop. Would have given five stars but the food was way over priced, especially the kids lunch box!
Aimed at children more than adults. Still worth a visit in term time
Loads to see and do. Fantastic for kids. Interactive and educational! The sharks were amazing!
Hi we came from the Isle of Wight so my husband could try diving with the sharks ! He absolutely loved it ( he’s a diver ) great dive instructors and a very friendly place ! All great all round ! Thank you Kristy More...
Nice place to show kids oceans life
We love this place. So many species of aquatic animals.
The marine life here are beautiful, they have a lovely and clean environment. We thoroughly enjoyed our day here, there is lots of activities to do. The food was lovely and fresh in a large spacious cafe, overlooking the water, with a nice play area. As a larger family we appreciated the generously sized table and seating too. There are opportunities to dive or spectate. The Aquarium has a shop that has gifts that vary in price to suit every budget. The staff were lovely and friendly. We also got to see Treasure Island one of the funniest shows we have seen in a long time, which was included in the ticket price. The performers were amazing, especially in such hot weather!. Definitely coming back again. More...
Really enjoyed walking round. Will come back soon as last time I was pregnant. Hoping to bring my daughter this time
Lovely better for locals out of season and in the week
The Shark Educational Dive Experience is absolutely fantastic and it is clear the team are very knowledgeable and passionate. I learned a lot about these amazing creatures and left the experience wanting to do more to help and protect them. It was my first time scuba diving and Jordan and the rest of the team were very patient and helpful, putting everyone at ease and making sure they felt safe and comfortable. Thank you for a wonderful day More...
Some lovely fish
If was lovely inside the employees were friendly, it just wasn't massively big and I got through it quite quickly! But we did enjoy the time we spent there
My 12 year old boy went diving with the sharks. He said it was the best experience of his life. The staff were friendly and put everyone's minds at rest. Food there was fantastic. Thank You for a great day More...
Lovely little aquarium, did the shark dive which was amazing
This place is awesome. Recommend the diving experience.
Little on the small side but still good value
Kim evans Evans
Good for kids, painfully cringe to watch as an adult.
Really loved the aquarium as it had a large screen to view the fishes from and for £60 you can dive into aquarium with the sharks and fishes. For £50 a family of 4 (2 adults & 2 kids) can get entry into 5 placed. More...
Deb oxford daddy
Brilliant place staff lovely

we have an anual pass, my little boy loves it, we go at least once a month and he is mesmerised everytime x
had the most amazing time today, my twins age 6 and my 11 yr old had a ball, the friendly staff, the interactive colouring tank and all the great healthy exhibits the shark feed was amazing and the knowledge of the staff was outstanding, my husband and I both learned something new today, and the treasure island pantomime was superb, it was a fantastic afternoon filled with fun and laughter, well done to long John silver and crew for a good giggle and the best hour of our holiday so far. If you get chance to go this summer make sure you don't miss the pantomime. More...

Interesting, informative and not expensive!!
Nice place disabled friendly too
Miłe miejsce szczególnie dla dzieci. Polecam
Love it here could spend a whole day here theres always stuff on for kids to do and face painting great value for money
Its an amazing aquarium with lots of cool fish. I especially liked the room where you can colour in a fish scan it in a machine and it drops it in a virtual tank and swims around. Also its pirate themed I didnt know that it was a good surprise! More...
Nice bright coloured fish. Also a big tank where you can see a variety of fish including sharks.
Had a wonderful experience today, diving was great, instructors well great. highly recommended. thanks Russ
Chris H Barnes
Great place to visit really enjoyed our visit a must for everyone young and old
Did the shark dive with BSAC Mark, Luke and Jordan the dive instructors where brilliant.
Love this place so stress free
Enjoyable for all ages
Great for kids
Environmental ecological experience. Well trained staff and education . Reasonable photograph prices , with a good choice of frames.
Akwarium w Skegness
Fantastic place for young and old alike. Just big enough to keep the young ones attention without them getting bored and lots of things for them to do and interact with.
Lovely place good for the price, all shows are regular so you will always be able to see one also staff were lovely and great with the children
Worth a visit! Plenty to see
great good food as well
Lovely day out with children
Went here during our visit this week. Obviously didn't have to pay for the under 1 but surprisingly didn't have to pay for my 2 and a half year old. The Aquarium was fantastic, from the pirate greeting you upon entering to the selection of things to see. There's also a quiz you have to answer as you go around and a great cafe with a soft play area for the children. All the staff I met were very friendly too. All in all we spent a fun few hours here. Well worth the visit! More...
Lovely place .
We have been to aquarium s before so I thought my son on his 10th birthday would be quite bored,but he loved it from the start they made it intriguing,and the treasure hunt was great and we drew some interactive fish which we thought was fun,really enjoyed it,
Very well managed and maintained. A bit small... I wanted it to last longer :)
It's well cool
Loved it very helpful staff . Clean and tidy
Great day out for the kids
I came here for Father's Day with the family and it was a nice, family friendly place to go. There is a variety of things to look at and the kids loved the indoor play area.
Brilliant, a really good and informative place where all its inhabitants seem to have a comfortable existence. Educational for not just the kids and lots to see.
Not a big aquarium by any means but wasn't badly priced and was still in there for over an hour. Staff nice and was really nicely themed.
Small but perfect for a couple of hours.some great bits like the interactive sand pit and the draw and animate your own fish. Just brilliant, makes it more than just an aquarium. There is even a cafe with a soft play for a quick break. More...
We love it. (Family n grandson)
X life Themeparks
Great aquarium and great speaker who tells us about the place but it is a little smaller than I thought
This is a very good place to visit,plenty to see inside and very informative staff on hand .Good to see the diver in the tank with the fish feeding them by hand.
Brilliant venue, lots to see and do, helpful staff and fantastic cafe and soft play area. My 3 year old enjoyed every minute and we had to drag her away. We were impressed too. Keep up good work guys and gals! More...
Loved the visit, recommend the diving.
Good value at £7 each with free soft play area upstairs and lots to see for the kids
Diving with sharks. How can that not be fantastic. The staff so kean and knowledgeable and friendly.
I love love love Skeg Aquarium The prices are really good, the foods good and the aquatics are beautiful, I come mainly for Baby Bean and I do love it here!
watching the feeding in the sunken hula tank and learning about the sharks!
Had a wonderful experience here today.kids and adults all enjoyed it, the staff are lovely and knowledgable about the effects of humans on sea life. Highly recommend!
Absolutely amazing Will definitely go again
the whole package is superb and an excellent way to spend a couple of hours in good old Skegness
Lots to see and do. Friendly staff.. made us giggle. Good price too !!!
Claire Dawn Etherington
Fantastic day out, tour guides were full of information. Loads of exciting things to see and do. Definitely will be returning.
What a amazing experience. The staff was absolutely fantastic, my nephew is slightly autistic and they picked up on this straight from the start, with out no mention of this which was VERY reassuring. All the staff was fantastic, friendly and most of all professional. What a lovely day can not recommend enough. Will be back again for sure. More...
Yes it s brilliant,better than ever imagined to be .Well worth the visit
Lovely family place to visit
Visited Skegness Aquarium today with a group of school children ! Jess and all the staff (including the divers) were amazing. The children had an exciting, eventful, interesting and fun time- hence the coach journey home was very quiet! Cannot find any fault with the whole day - it was wonderful; professional staff; lovely clean toilets and play area as well as massive amounts of information and facts about sea creatures ! Thank you to everyone at the Aquarium More...
Absolutly brilliant, nothing was to much trouble, very educational.
we've now purchased a year family pass to the aquarium which we can also use at model village and the riverboat
Shark Diving experience was just fab!! The instructors were brilliant, very engaging and helpful. My partner had a great time!!? Defo recommend.
100% would tell anyone to visit here. Tanks are very clean, staff are so helpful and the experiences are amazing for those participating and those spectating. Well worth the money
Brilliant show today with the dinosaurs and the fossil talk is so interesting dinosaurs so life like well worth the visit definitely recommend to others
Kelly M McDonagh
We go every time we come and usually 2/3 visits within the holiday. We have gone today and wanted to pay for the return visit. He told us that there is a dinosaur show on Thursday so we said great! To then be told we can’t use the return voucher on that day so will cost us another £36.00! We had called last weekend and nothing was mentioned about this dinosaur day. I now have a very upset 6 year old who also has disabilities and obsessed with dinosaurs as she can’t go. We love the aquarium but this has ruined our visit as upset over the fact we can’t return on that day without paying the full price again! Not great customer service is it!!!!!!!!! More...
Excellent value for money, tasty delicious food from a good variety of dishes available, clean toilets and venue overall, welcoming and friendly staff ... and some amazing fishes to admire obviously. 5⭐️ ... worth a visit for sure More...
Visited Skegness aquarium yesterday with our 2 year old and 7 month old, my toddler (Hattie) has always loved everything pirates/fish/shark etc. We had the most fantastic experience! Just wanted to thank the staff for being so lovely, the pirate at the start really engaged Hattie, she keeps talking about finding the Captains treasure and saying “Arr ha me hearties” A staff member stopped to help her find “Pascal” (the chameleon) and another showed her how to feed a starfish with a muscle and she learnt they’re blind!! Then we watched the divers feeding the fish in the main tank and answered a question (she now knows Dory is a Tang!), she wants to grow up to be a diver she keeps doing the “ok” sign to everyone! Such a lovely day made all the better by the staff!! We will be back More...
Scuba diving with the sharks was an amazing and affordable experience not forgetting the friendly staff who made it a magical one! Definitely recommend
As an aquatics lover, I was pleasantly surprised when seeing the amazing enrichment and designs of the enclosures for all the animals in this aquarium. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable and taught me new information about sea urchins! A wonderful visit for any age. More...
Visited today to take part in the scuba dive experience. Really enjoyed myself, would recommend it to anyone interested in marine life. Staff were really helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. Had a great time, thank you! More...
Krystal Elizabeth Taylor
Lovely visit to the aquarium today. Informative talk/feed with the divers. Extremely helpful staff who reunited me with my phone that I had left behind, their quick thinking to call my ICE number avoided me completely melting down! A massive thank you x
Even as a Senior on my own I had an enjoyable few hours and was happy to see how excited the little children were !
AMAZING!! 2nd time we’ve been. Went today with Nanny and my 7month old. We all loved it � It was very clean, professional and staff were extremely polite. We were lucky enough to catch feeding time in the theatre tank where the lady was excellent with the school on a trip and was interesting to everyone and she was very knowledgable, this was the highlight of our visit. On exit the gift shop is full of lovely souvenirs all reasonable priced. We came away with a cuddley shark �. What a pleasure to have this is on our door step can’t wait to go back already. More...
Loved our day out at Skegness Aquarium it was brilliant. I loved the feeding of the fish at 1.00 with Leonie an ace day out.
Excellent diving with sharks experience today. All of the dive staff (Jordan, Leonie and Jamie) were friendly, knowledgeable and patient. Dive training was in a tank with several baby sharks before moving into the main aquarium. My hair was nibbled by several fish. We met Nudge the zebra shark, rays, black tip reef sharks and a whole variety of fish. "Massaging" the fish by gently pouring the gravel was fantastic and they were queuing up � More...
Did a shark dive, and it was fantastic. Scuba staff were amazing.
Fantastic aquarium, amazing diving experience and the instructors were brilliant!
Thoroughly enjoyed the visit, best aquarium we have been too, lived the divers feeding the fish and sharks.
We came for the shark dive experience... wow what an experience! We didnt realise how up close and personal all the sharks and fish got, its a world away from just looking through the glass! Extensive training was given before hand making it suitable for everyone even those like us who have never done anything like this before, the training itself alongside baby sharks was amazing never mind taking the plunge into the main tank full of awsome fish rays and sharks, we couldnt reccomend higher! The staff were some of the most welcoming people i have ever met and truly make you feel like one of the team, every one of the staff make you feel comfortable and make your experience one to never forget, thankyou so much to the skegness dive team- lou&amber x More...
Great experience and helpful down to earth staff, very professional.
Bob Lydia Hunt
We visited Saturday morning for my daughters 6th birthday party with quite a number of her friends! What a fantastic experience all the children throughly enjoyed themselves as did the parents! The tanks were well laid out and the ‘pirate’ that showed us round was very informative. They incorporated so much into our visit we had 2 talks about the main tank and the rock pools which captivated the children. The interactive areas were fantastic and again the kids were inthralled by making their own islands and beaches in the sandpit! They also loved colouring in fish and sending them into the tank to swim around! They all got their faces painted too! After all of this we had the hot party buffet which was so good! The area was clean and looked lovely and then they all got to burn off some energy in the soft play. We will definitely return. The party bags were great too! All the staff that we came in contact with were brilliant. I can highly recommend! More...
So many marine tropical fish to look at Not to mention the batrays sharks and puffer fish You can even get up close and personal with creepies if you want great for a good couple of hours Loved it
When I went to the Skegness Aquriaum Last Year in Skegness I enjoyed Seeing And Meeting The Divers In The Tanks and Asking The Divers Lots of Questions under Water Through the tanks it Was Very Interesting I Loved it so Much
Such an amazing place, would really recommend the dive experience or just as a family day out.
Great aquarium, our 20month old loved seeing the fish. Great exhibits, helpful and friendly staff. Good food.
Just getting better and better!
Allow 2 to 3 hours. The children's play area upstairs is included in entrance fee which is a nice touch
Fun for kids n adults.not too long or big.has a cafe, soft play n fun learning area.very good info talks as well
Great. Feeding thr fish was very informative.
Not to bad a place.to visit
awesome place to go for all ages
It's was fun
Nice family place
Although relatively small in size, this is well worth a visit. Enthusiastic staff. Cafe. Toilet facilities. Easy access and facilities for disabled. Clean, modern.Things to do throughout the day.Recommend the diver in the pool talk. More...
Very good value for money, kids really enjoyed it and there was loads to see.
Brilliant experience for kids, my 3 year old and his friend had an amazing time. Many types of fish and activities for them and it even has a soft play upstairs. Definitely worth the price.
Nice place to visit with kids
5£ after 5pm best spent money in all Skegness
Awesome place to visit. Quite smaller than I thought but was OK. Activities for children were very good. Lots to see.
loved it great attraction
Michael K. Allen
Very good but not big.
Exciting for children and adults
Great for kids. Wide range of animals. Little on the expensive side though.
Average size aquarium just okay
Love looking at fish, love eating fish
Great day out
It's a small cozy aquarium, but with a lot of interesting little details and good curation. The main tank has a good variety of tropical fish that you can even dive with if you book with the dive center there well in advance.
Had a good time with family and frends
Came on a beaver sleep over... A good time was had by all. Good good for both young and old... Catered for our gluten free and veggie members... But best of all friendly and knowledgeable staff that interact fantastically with young people. More...
Excellent attraction at Skegness.
Great experience. Fantastic staff
Small but fun
I love coming here and been 8 times since it opened. Cafe a big let down and should lower winter prices as keep closing early because there quiet. Place immaculate and staff friendly. The animals clearly well looked after.just please sort cafe out.Thank you More...
Great place but needs more.....not enough to keep you there long
What a fantasic place.
Great little aquarium. Very new and clean. Great price we got through Groupon. Very friendly staff. Nice cafe and kids play area upstairs. Had a fun little quiz where kids could win treasure at the end which made it educational and exciting for the kids. More...
Nice variety of marine fish
A great day out start to finish! Lots to see and do and friendly helpful staff.
Took our grandchild we and her enjoyed the experience
A brilliant place to visit, staff are very good with young & old alike. Always have time to talk to visitors. We’ve visited with a 6 yr old a few times & staff have been really kind, patient & had time to explain everything. It’s somewhere that’s excellent for children & adults. A fine cafe & play area, a good place to spend a day. More...
Good standard aquarium. The cafe and soft play are very good though.
Great interactive activities, and great food and jungle gym also.
Absolutelt brilliant, friendly staff and really informative....even taught me a few things :)
It was interesting to walk round
Love thisIncludes a little treasure trail where the kids get chocolate at the end
Haven't been inside, but it looks lovely place to visit in Skegness
Lovely day out
Kids loved it
It was a great day out with my niece
Great place for kids and adults. Love the start of the journey around the aquarium
It's a nice place for kids
Well the money excellent experience.
Really good fun, lots of exhibits and the mid week deal made it excellent value for money too.
Really enjoyed it. Good for the money we paid and a really good gift shop and not too pricey.
I really enjoyed the experience here. Well worth a visit. Good gift shop.
A really nice family day out enjoyed by both adults and kids.
Absolutely amazing place. I really enjoyed it!!!
Nice place for kids.
It was good, perfect size for toddlers, very friendly staff and lots of interaction and the cafe had a good soft play area but the service in the cafe was atrocious, so slow and overpriced for what we finally got in the end when it finally arrived after 15 mins of queuing and a 45 min wait for a couple of crappy small salads and they even got that wrong. The kids didnt mind of course, longer to play in the soft play area.... More...
Children loved this. Excellent displays and great value for money. Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff.
A good day out.
Entertained children well
Lovely place to visit, prices for children are too high
Nice day out.
Nice little aquarium, great for kids. Plenty of species of fish and other sea creatures from around the world also has a cafe upstairs with a little indoor soft playarea. Recommend to anyone.
Really enjoyed visiting here when we went on holiday. My three children aged 12 10 and 4 all enjoyed doing the quiz on the way round they held a shark egg and stroked the crab. We had a drink in the cafe while the kids played in the play area and we paid an extra £2 per person to ride the riverboat which we had all to ourselves all the way there and back. Would definitely go again More...
A lovely place to visit, especially if you have young kids. You can park nearby, there is shop and restaurant on site though these are both a little expensive. Well worth a visit. The staff were lovely, the place was clean and it was entertaining for the missus and kid... I'm not really into fish but I still thought it was decent. More...
Lovely place to visit with the children
Nice environment and fun for families
Amazing for the little one would reccomend
Nice place informitive and interesting. Plenty for children and adults alike.
A wonderful experience regardless of your age.
Lots of exciting stuff for children and adults tank talks are amazing and so are the creepy crawleys
Nice aquarium. Bit smaller than most. It worth a visit. Has soft play in upstairs cafe.
A bit expensive but good. Take your own food.
My friend children had a party here staff were brilliant and we all loved the aquarium
Large variety of fish in brightly lit aquariums. Treasure trail for children. Displays in wet lab and insects, both educational. Cafe with views over the sea
Really really good
Brilliant few hours fun for all family. Food expensive though.

We had lovely time lots to do staff really helpful and friendly great watching the feeding of the sharks
Not the biggest aquarium in the world but very well laid out and good interactivity for children. The 'Bistro' can get very busy and having the soft play area in the same space means the noise level is high. A good way to spend a rainy half day. More...
Mark James Rose
Very interesting displays and some clever tech. Just a bit smaller than the price might suggest.
Just had a shark dive experience, it was fantastic, thanks to Charlie, Jen and especially Jordan for guiding us through it. Would highly recommend ���
Staff very polite and friendly, dive experience was excellent, good food and clean area well done all��
We visited on Friday 1st June, and we're very impressed! The aquarium is huge, all the animals are clearly cared for very well. Plenty of room and lots of different fish to sea. All beautiful! My children (9 and 6) absolutely loved this place and we stayed at least 3 hours. They did the treasure trail, and went around finding all the answers. They thought the talk from the pirate captain at the beginning was hilarious... and I thought it was great as he tells you all the rules and to not bang on the tanks windows so the fish do not get scared. They coloured in pictures that then transformed on the big screen before there eyes. My son loved beanbag the octopus! The sharks and rays were awesome watching them swim around. There's such a range of animals though as well as the fish, frogs, scorpions, rats, and so much more. My children also loved the interactive talks and they did the creepy crawlies and the wet lab etc. All staff were lovely especially the lady who did wetblab showing my children how to feed the anemonies don't think that's how you spell it lol. Great views from the cafe, and the kids enjoyed for a short time the indoor play area. I think it's wonderful you can pay to dive there too and when my little lads old enough I think we will definitely bring him and his sister to do this. All the staff should be very proud of this place, it's a great thing for Skegness.... very clean at all times. And it was good seeing the sharks fish and rays in the nursery getting fed, all the fish came out for the food, how wonderful..... thanks for a great day Skegness aquarium there's so much to do and see, we will definitely be coming back. More...
loved this place fairly priced too as it's not massive, but me and my 7 year old loved would definitely recommend if your in the area
My daughter and husband did a Shark scuba dive on Sunday. It was for my daughters 10th birthday present, she had the most fantastic experience with top training by Adam, Pete and Jordan. Loved it from start to finish. I would definitely recommend this. Thank you to everyone for making her Birthday scuba fun ���� More...
Just had my 4 year old little girls party here today, all the children from age 2 to 10 loved it. They did something to include all the children and kept them all entertained for the whole 3 hours. From the Party Bags to the group photo totally amazed by the quality and our own superstar Pirate called Ellie to take us around. Would 100% reccomend to anyone. More...
Charlotte Emma Briggs
Visited there today. Best aquarium I've visited in a long time. Staff were approachable and friendly and the place itself was spotless! Coffee shop is reasonably priced and we were lucky enough to go on coffee morning so entry, coffee and cake for £6. Absolutely amazing. Would recommend to anyone. More...
Our son had a shark diving experience and loved every minute. All the staff were amazing, the diving instructors gave very clear and supportive instructions. Can't recommend enough, and he has already asked to go again. Brilliant. :) More...
Excellent birthday party today for Chloe-Ann. Very well organised all the kids loved it and the pirate Ellie i think it was, was very good and helpful! Thank you Skegness aquarium best kids party I have paid for well worth it! More...
Me and my family had an enjoyable time at the aquarium. It was both informative and interesting discovering all the different species of fish. We would like to thank Jen and the team for our daughters diving experience. She throughly enjoyed being with the fish up close and personal especially nudge the shark. The staff were very helpful, friendly professional. I would definitely recommend a visit More...
Really pleased with the birthday party we had this morning for my daughter 6th birthday. Very well organised and the pirate we had with us was excellent. The best party we have had in a long time. More...
Booked my son's 4th birthday party here and all I can say is AMAZING!! What an awesome party!! We had the Pirate Guide-Ellie who was fabulous with all the kids & ensured the party ran smoothly! There was so much for them to experience & do that 3 hours just flew by! The birthday message in the tank was the highlight for me, but everything was first class including the food! Ellie even cut up the birthday cake for us! What a fantastic experience party-I highly recommend it! Thank you so much to all the staff especially Ellie! More...
I was booked on the shark dive experience yesterday and it was absolutely fantastic. The whole experience was better than I expected and the dive team was brilliant and very helpful. Being in the main tank watching the sharks and all the very inquisitive fish is something I will never forget and definitely recommend to anyone. Thank you to Gen and Adam and the rest of the dive team for an incredible experience I’ll never forget More...
Rebecca Oaksey Oakes
My autistic son, and my daughter loved the interactive sand pit, we went back 3 times today during our visit, he loved that his fish stayed on the screen far longer then my daughters fish. The play zone in the cafeteria was fun. Lower food prices than you expect, my meal was lovely. The large exhibit was great. Facepainting, a quiz for the children, pirate craft time, the wet lab... It really encouraged my son to engage in the exibit rather than he getting bored halfway round. And cheap for a day at an aquarium. Many thanks to the friendly, hardworking staff. More...
Took my wife as I'd been b4 we both loved it very interesting the only fault we had and this is why I've only given it 4 stars when we were told to go in to watch a video at the start it was pretty full and not a lot of room the girl still insisted she had to close the door basically pushing me in whilst closing it a bit like putting sheep in a pen we was very disgusted in that when the proper thing to do was to wait till the restart of the video when the room had emptied but other than that we enjoyed it
I had booked my son on a dive experience as his Christmas present and I have to say it exceeded all of our expectations. The entire dive team were amazing, making everyone feel at ease and welcome from the start but I have to say a special thank you to Adam and Jacob who took the time to make my sons experience a one of a kind and enable him to dive deeper than he has ever been in the past. I'd highly recommend this to anyone. More...
My son had his party at the aquarium today, and we couldn't fault a single thing. Staff were brilliant, the party food was great and really tasty, and our pirate host was fantastic. We had 16 kids there in total and they all had a really good time and loved learning about the fish etc and the craft session. My son loved the added touch of having his name on the board in the main tank with the divers. Thanks again and highly recommend a party for anyone. Luke says a big thankyou for making his party a great one x More...
Anna'nd Dave Robinson
our daughter did a shark dive today. she was a little nervous to begin with but the fabulous staff literally held her hand all the way through. An amazing experience that will stay with her forever. thank you More...
Had a really good time with our two children today. Staff really friendly and informative.
Absolutely loved our trip yesterday. Feeding time with the divers was fab, how clever of the fish to know when it’s their turn for food by looking at the divers gloves although the big red snapper made his own rules up! Loved the octopus couldn’t believe how strong he was - he was my favourite. Only suggestion I can make is for the cafe staff to have numbered tables which will save them from shouting out the orders. All in all a brilliant day out More...

We had a fantastic time with our 21 month old daughter today. ����
We had a great time. Especially enjoyed the diver feed and octopus feed.

Me, sean and our 2 girls absolutely loved visiting today. The whole place is very clean, literally cannot fault this place. We spent over 3 and a half hours here, watching the feeding take place, and talking about the different fishes/sharks octopuses they have there. Paul Fish (awesome name I must say) and Stephen were fantastic, they answered all my questions that I wanted to ask (which was lot lol) and didn't make us feel like we needed to rush while talking to them, we were talking for an hour in total. You can tell they really love their jobs, also I didn't get the other lady's name in the shop but I remember Kerry's name, they were both lovely too. All the staff have lovely chemistry towards eachother, a credit to the Aquarium and how they interact with the customers are 5*. We will be leaving a TripAdvisor review too, if anybody wants a good day out with their children I highly recommend coming here. Plenty to see and do you won't leave disappointed. Will most definitely be visiting again x More...
Fantastic local attraction, staffed by very knowledgeable people.
Superb place to visit. Have seen a lot of Aquariums and Skegness Aquarium has got to be one of the best. Staff very friendly, reasonably priced at £5.00 though this was the winter price but certainly worth a visit. More...
Lovely baby morning £5 entry with a free hot drink
I wine on the shark dive at the weekend. The staff were amazing and the marine life was obviously well looked after. The experience was fantastic.
we had a lovely day yesterday. my little boy really enjoyed it and the staff were all lovely and very helpful , will definitely be visiting again!
Went to watch my grandson do his shark dive well worth it and he wants to do another
Wow! What more can I say. We celebrated our daughters birthday with you today and you couldn’t have done anymore for us, Ellie-mae and everyone were so attentive. The food was amazing and freshly prepared. Our guests have told us this was an amazing experience. Thank you! More...

My son James thoroughly enjoyed his dive experience on Sat 16th December. It was truly memorable. The dive team - Gen, Lee and Nigel were fantastic. So friendly, supportive and helpful. Highly recommend this experience. It is well worth the money. More...
My nieces had their birthday party here today. It was excellent. All the staff were lovely and very knowledgeable. It was wonderful to see that Skegness has such a place.

My son did a shark dive yesterday as an 11th birthday present. The staff were absolutely fantastic and couldn't ask for more! Gen kept the important information fun but informative and lee and Kevin were super with getting finlay sorted suited and booted! Both Lee and kevin were absolutely fantastic with finlay in the water, there was a moment finlay panicked and was tempted to not go through with it. But with their guidance and help I had a very 'proud mum' moment when finlay got in the water and then loved every minute of his dive experience. I really can't thank them enough for helping finlay show himself what a young man he is becoming and overcoming many fears. Lee was super in the training tank and a great instructor and finlay picked it up in no time. Really the best experience he has ever had, a birthday he won't forget! Massive massive thanks to all staff involved and he'll definitely be doing another dive! More...
This was the third time I have taken a group on the Dive Experience and on every occasion the full Aquarium Team have been excellent, from the reception staff to the dive instructors they are all friendly, accommodating and professional. The dive team take the time to personally make everyone feel at ease and comfortable through the whole experience. The smiles as the participants come out the main tank say it all! A fantastic experience with many wanting to have another go. Thanks to our instructors Steve, Lance, & Charlie and also thanks to Jamie and Kerry for helping with the organisation. More...
My son Olly, 14 years old, came for a dive yesterday. Be prepared for a full day at the Aquarium, but definitely worth the wait. Great value for money as my other 2 children had so much fun. Amazing experience for Olly, great photos & videos. A day to remember, thank you so much xxx More...
Took my 10 month old Grandson and he loved it......will definitely be going again....thank you.
12th birthday present. what a great day, staff were amazing/helpful. it was very child focused which made the day run smooth. just be aware if like us with another child, its a long day for them and the parent not going in. More...
Would like to thank you for your kind donation for the family pass for the Mick peech memorial thanks for your surrport
Visited this week with my adult daughter.We were impressed with the whole experience after reading some negative feedbacks.The staff was very informative,friendly and helpful.the place was lovely and clean and saw species of fish I hadn`t seen before even though we have been to similar attractions.Would definitely visit again! More...
Did the diving with sharks experience yesterday and it was amazing!! Divers and staff are so friendly and informative. One of the best days of my life. Thank you
Probably not best to visit busy times but it wasn't too bad when we visited well worth a visit beautifully done and all the creatures looked well and healthy. Nice cafeteria with nice views.
Absolutely brilliant day out we all enjoyed everything about it, It made my mum's 73rd birthday and my two 3 year old daughters day. They loved it and will definitely be returning. More...
Our son did a dive today and absolutely loved every minute. First class experience. The instructors were fantastic making everyone at ease yet made it all seem so easy! Definitely recommend this experience More...
Great place for a rainy afternoon. Friendly staff, clean tanks and lots to see. Cafe upstairs is nice too.
Been here today with our boys aged 5 and 7 and they had a fantastic time. Not very big but if you take the time to join in the activities it's great. We spent 4 hours here and the kids are already asking to go back next weekend. Staff were very friendly and great with my very inquisitive 5 yr old.will definitely be back soon More...
Took part in the Dive experience on Sat Sept 30th and when I came out of the water I was speachless. What an amazing time, the Dive crew were fantastic and so patient,they made the experience 10x better. We took our friends little boy and from start to finish everyone made him feel special,thank you to the lovely lady in the cafe who helped us with a gopro, cake for Lance and arranging the tannoy call,Coen did not know until the tannoy was put out for him to go to the dive area,his face was a picture. It wasn't just a sit in one place dive,we moved all over the tank,gave the fish a sand scrub and watched as the sharks came to investigate. Thank you so so much More...
Great place to take your children, excellent staff, great customer service what more can you get for a lovely day trip x
Worth the money. We visited in term time and it was not busy. We spent a couple of hours here and did the treasure trail quiz and won some treasure. Friendly staff and lovely aquarium. Also there's a free soft play area and free crafty session for the kids. More...
Nice place to visit, expected a little bit more but was interesting.
Kirsty Leanne Dickson
we went to visit yes with quite a few children and must say we thoroughly enjoyed it great experience only down side is the cafe is quite over priced we paid a lot for 2 lattes tht were only Luke warm other then tht lovely xx
Went with hubbie yeaterday and thought it was well worth the money.enjoyed watching the sharks and fish being fed and the lady was very good and informative.
We went to Skegness aquarium yesterday and had a marvellous day! We got there about 11 and left at 3, we only left because we had another engagement otherwise I think we'd of been there all day! My 2 year old daughter loved it! We went round and round and round loads of times! She got her hand painted and did some fishy crafts. We had a very reasonably priced snack and hot drink upstairs. We could have watched the fish all day. The staff were all very friendly although could of done with 1 or 2 more members. I could see how it would be too small and too busy in the school holidays but the time we went was absolutely AMAZING! We are definitely coming back! More...
We had an amazing time, very interesting, we loved watching feeding time a huge variety of fish and worth every penny we are going again on thursday
Christine Anita Jasmine Lowe
Loved b here was amazing beautiful love see all the fish and feeding time can't wait to come again xx
This is the third time l have been and l'm always amazed at what l see.
Took my 10 year old to do the shark dive -Can't recommend it enough - the dive was fantastic as my son has no experience of diving whatsoever. The instructors Charlie, Lance and Helen were brilliant - very patient and knowledgable. Would recommend this to anyone. More...
Excellent day out! Very enthusiastic young lad who ran the wet lab also did most of the interactive speeches, did a great job at engaging people. Would highly recommend the experience to anyone. More...
I took the opportunity to dive with the sharks and rays in the large tank at the weekend. The team involved were very good - friendly, professional and did their utmost to make the experience safe and enjoyable. I'm glad I did it and the memories will stay with me for a long time. More...
I attended the Shark Dive Experience yesterday, thanks to my awesome wife :); and I have to say it is an experience that I will always remember and treasure. From the get go we were made welcome and at ease by the training team of Barrie, Gen and Adam, all of whom were full of enthusiasm and knowledge they were clearly happy to share. I can reccomend the dive experience to anyone even remotely interested, well worth the money. I am now a confirmed dive addict! More...
Staff are fantastic and friendly as well as knowledge about the fish/animals they care for. Would definitely recommend the visit.
Visited for the first time back in April this year and came back today for my daughter and husband to dive with the sharks. They both had an absolutely amazing time. I would also like to say that the diving instructors where fantastic and really helped my 8 year old daughter feel confident and safe. It was a fab experience for them to do and us to watch. More...
Rachel Laura Day

Amazing to see all the fish swimming and all the different animals that where in there as well
Lovely staff, clean and tidy, son loved it great pirate adventure

Had a fun day yesterday. My granddaughter (age 3) loved it and we spent over two hours looking at the fish, having her face painted, having a slush and playing in the soft play area. Was not a busy day and I can imagine it would not have been pleasant if it had been. Only down side was did seem rather pricey once seen how small it was. More...
What a fantastic place. I came with my husband 6 year old and 1 year old. It was perfect for them. It wasn't overcrowded and the tank displays were we'll set out and kept my two interested for ages. The cafe and soft play were clean and well kept with a lovely view out to the beach area. The facepainters were great too!! I will definitely come back again and recommend it too!. More...
Very nice though smaller than expected and was hot
Brilliant experience and chance to scuba dive with sharks. will be back again next summer holidays defiantly.
Went on Sunday it was fantastic I would recommend it to anyone, really good for the kids.
The Aquarium itself was great very clean and the fish were showcased really well. I was pleasantly surprised to be honest. Downsides: luckily it wasn't that busy when we went; but I could see it becoming cramped in there very quickly if you were to throw some more people in. I was also a bit put out by the lad at the crab pool who couldn't answer the simplest of questions like 'how long will they live for' and 'what do they eat'. He couldn't answer any of my 4 questions pretty bad! When I asked if we could hold them, he looked at his watch, mumbled and said no because it wasn't 4.30pm (it was about 4pm). Most odd! It would also have been nice to have a tank where you could put your hands in and hold crustaceans etc. The biggest problem was the price nearly £30 for 2 adults and one 4 year old! I guess that's why it was so quiet! I got dragged in by the girlfriend after saying i would wait outside due to the total price and whilst yes I enjoyed it, I couldn't whole heartedly recommend it due to this. The Aquarium is very similar to the FREE one at Alton Towers (which let's people interact with fish more) so having to pay so much as an adult and for small children I'm sure keeps many away! So, there you go. A good way to kill 40-60 mins but very expensive and not in all honesty worth the money. More...

We visited during our holiday my children loved it, lots to see and do. My children enjoyed listening to the talks and having their faces painted.
We spent the afternoon with these guys today and it was my first time diving and I loved it!! The fish were amazing and I was so astonished to be immersed in their underwater world! Definitely a memory I will keep. The instructors were fantastic and made the experience enjoyable and less anxiety provoking! � More...
Had a lovely day at the aquarium today's. Boys had their faces painted, saw the sharks and rays being fed and got to have a go in the play area.

5stars just isn't enough we want yesterday for my son who's 8 to take part in the dive experience and from start to finish everything was amazing, the team were happy for us to stay with him through the training and while he was in the practice tank he absolutely loved every minute of the entire thing cant thank you all enough xxx
