Awesome experience

I loved everything! The volunteers are amazing and they took the time to answer every question. It was great to see an aquarium where the animals health is put before anything!! Thanks so much, will definitely recommend and we will be back in the future 🦈🐠

Great day out

We had a great day, joined all the talks and activities throughout the day. What unique about reef Hq is that it is mostly run by volunteers so there is a non commercial feel to the place. We had many nice chats to many staffs. The exhibits are great, with many great environmental messages. There is also a turtle hospital which is part of one of the talk, we got to see in injured turtles under treatment. Very nice place, not crowded on weekends (and there is usually a discounted ticket). Highly recommended.

Interesting place, informative guides

The visit to the aquarium was very interesting and we spend 3 hours there, more time than we intended. The guides were very informative and answered all the questions we had. A visit to the aqarium is recommended!
