Surprised me with the detail they have in a small place. Very organized and beautiful aquarium. Worth every penny spent

This aquarium gives one an environmental education and explains the diversity of sea life along the Galician coast. The explanations at the aquarium are very good and educational.

The exhibits offer vast biodiversity and the sea life is very well looked after. You will not be disappointed here :) The only issue for us is the lack of English information on the exhibits. We can't expect that of course, and on it's visual merit alone we felt it was great value.

I visited it with my friends. I really enjoyed it. A lot of little different activities to do and everything is organised quite good. However I really think that all descriptions in English language next to Spanish ones would improve the service :)

This aquarium is one of the best I have seen. It has amazing indoor exhibits, some interactive, then it has large tanks with many types of fish and at the bottom, there is an underwater outside tank that is amazing and inspired on the Nautilus of Jules Verne fame. Once outdoors, there are gigantic walls that fend off the sea... More

the fish tanks are not many and are very small. Apart from that, the exhibitions are very well organizing and the tank in the lower level is a good surprise.

2 hours guided visit (included in the ticket price, 10€). Their web page does not inform about it (just about 1 morning visit on weekends that must be booked beforehand), so it was a great surprise and very instructive. You can also visit on your own. There's a restaurant on the premises and nice sea view.

We always go the local aquarium when on holiday and this didn't disappoint. Easy to find, plenty of parking, indoor and outdoor exhibits, big tanks, variety of fish. Downside - nothing is in English (unlike other places we went) so limited engagement.

I went to the Aquarium Finisterrae in May 2012 with my friend. She doesn't like aquariums, but we agreed that in return for going there, I'd have to put up with her watching the Eurovision Song Contest. Really good aquarium, lots of interesting tanks with fish etc in them. My friend took great delight in pointing at clownfish and shouting... More

Good fish selection. Very interesting way to tell a story of ocean life. Cute seals at feeding time. Good ideea with the " fish theatre". Interesting quiz zone! No english translation and no indication for the tour. Good restaurant and coffee shop. Good suvenirs shop. Clean bathroom. Worth money and time!
