Great visiting with children and fabulous venue of conference cocktail party. Loved having the sharks and stingrays come sailing past while one is at a social event . Well laid out and very informative. The setting within an old ship is great.

Is it easy to find parking? Or would it be better to park somewhere safe outside Durban and get public transport?
