This tour was part of our package. The venue is really dirty and the rubbish floating in the water surrounding it is really horrid. They did have two of the oldest men on the planet trying to scoop the rubbish out but i suspect it was more for show than actually to clean up.
There are a variety of fish in rather small tanks along with some pretty tired looking sea horses and eels. The tanks just seemed so filthy.
Outside there were two large ocean type pools, one had some very large fish in it but you could barely see them as the water was filthy and i did wonder how the poor things breathed. The other contained 7 really large sea turtles, again the water was filthy so unless the poor things were right on the surface you would never be able to see them.
I was really shocked when some Chinese tourists went right into the water and started pulling on their flippers i bought this to the attention of our guide but he insisted that this was ok and that we could do it too as it was good luck. We chose not to tug at them.
There was another enclosed pool area, i don't know what was in it but they were trying to entice them with prawns on a fishing line. At that point we decided it was time to leave.
I would not recommend this as a tourist attraction. I think as Australians we are so lucky with our beatiful aquariums, zoos and nature parks that places like this in Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand just upset us. Do yourself a favour and stay away.

I visited the Tri Nguyen aquarium as a part of 3 island boat trip . We went with my wife and kids . The aquarium was ok , The tropical garden in which it's located enchanting,but the real great surprise was the seals show at the Dolphins Planet . It was the best deal in Nha Trang . For little more than $1 we were treated to the professional show that our kids loved . Thanks to the russian team of animal trainers the little critters performed acrobatic tricks and amused everyone . I guess those Russkies know not only how to hack our elections :). Strongly recommend during your stay in Nha Trang.

This was the worst! It was a concrete mass made into a ship . It needed re painting all over.
The worst were the tanks of large cat fish , turtles and . All were in too small tanks.
The sting ray could not go up and down as the rank was too narrow.
Really horrible
Not a good place to support , they need help in how to show off in an aquarium.

We were the only people visiting the aquarium which needs renovation! Some aquariums look very poor with no plants inside.
There some impressive big fishes in the cellar of the aquarium.
Outside and around the building it is not clean. Employees are sleeping behind the booths.
Would not recommend to visit the aquarium.
