Sea World Aquarium in Durban
Ushaka Marine World or the sea world aquarium is a display of the diverse marine life found in the Western Indian Ocean.
The ground level is decorated with beautiful landscaped gardens giving views of the aquarium from ground level. There are small shallow water exhibits of sea life giving visitors a closer look at exotic fish and sharks. When you go underground the experience is totally different.
You enter through a hole in a wrecked vessel and can go three floors further down into the aquarium galleries. There are fish, sharks and invertebrates on display in this aquarium. Ushaka Marine World is one of the five largest aquariums in the world.
There is also a dolphin stadium seating 1200 people which hosts entertaining dolphin shows. You can also visit the seal stadium and a penguin rookery. For an extra charge you can snorkel or scuba dive through the reefs. The Water Park, which is part of the Sea World, is also a special feature.
There are many swimming pools for children and adults and many fun rides, water slides and high speed chutes.
