Great day out. Loads to see. You can easily spend a day here. I know some people say it is expensive but we thought it was well worth the money.

Amazing place with so much to see. We spend some 4 hours (incl lunch) and enjoyed both the animals and the surroundings. Great set-up with lots of room for some extraordinary species of fish and mammals. never saw so many sharks in a basin. But also enjoyed the large birdcage with its spoonbills and egrets. Sorry we did not bring... More

It's a nice aquarium. A great range of creatures. Nice design too. But I don't think it's the world's best aquarium or even close to it. And an almost 30euro ticket for it is a bit steep we felt. The Dolphin show was good. But the commentary dragged a bit. It was also mostly in Spanish so made no sense... More

This place will leave you speechless... Whales and Walruses up close... walking under aquariums full of sharks and stingrays and every sort of sea creature. A true emersion experience. Did a hotel rate that included two tickets thru nearby AC Marriott which cut the cost but it would have been worth full price. A real treasure.

I think it's disgusting that that nothing has been done about this. When I walked into the Antarctic section to see two whales in a tank not even close to being big enough for them what I saw was very upsetting. The beautiful white beluga whale staring through a small square barred window. Not moving away just in one spot... More

We stayed in Valencia at the end of August, we hit a freak heat wave and the temperatures got to 45* we thought of going to the aquarium, however, was advised that with the heat being as hot as it was, meant that it would be really uncomfortable. Our daughter saw one of the leaflets which showed that they had... More

Well worth spending at least 4/5 hours in this park which includes a show by Dolphins. I must admit to feeling uncomfortable at the use of these wonderful mammals to entertain but did go and must admit enjoyed it. The glass tunnels with fish, including sharks swimming, Walruses feeding etc. too much to mention.

My wife and I went to Valencia last week and we saw the Oceanografic for the 4th time! This is a place that you can enjoy every time you go there. We saw the dolphin show and this is a must see, very enjoyable, especially for children. The aviary is also interesting and one can enter it and take photos... More

It is an OK place to visit, but it is not so big and can be quite packed. Interesting design. The dolphin show is not as good as on Tenerife for instance.
