It's a very nice aquarium. It's a tiny bit expensive (28€) but worth the while if you go on time for an dolphin show. The dolphin show was actually really good and the structure of the Oceanografic is also really good. instead of walking inside you walk through gardens and walk into buildings where you have the tanks.

The Oceanografic is a spectacular attraction inside and out. The architecture is photo worthy. The aquarium is very well organized and easy to walk through. There are many animals to watch and learn about. My favorite was the tank that was a tube, where you felt like you were inside of the tank with sharks swimming over you. This part... More

Well worth a visit, I would say a must see aquarium, well laid out and a range of marine life including wales and dolphins (if these animals are to be kept in captivity this is the place for them), Food was expensive but I guess you have to accept that with any tourist attraction anywhere around the world such as...

We visited on a day when the temperature was 43C so the underground attractions which allow you to walk through the tanks containing all manner of fish were a bonus. The dolphin show is not to be missed but get there early to guarantee a seat in the shade. Well worth a visit.

I've been to the Monterrey Bay aquarium, and this one compares well. I agree with other raters that the belugas seem to be depressed and distressed, but otherwise it is a great educational park. The shore birds were really beautiful, as were some of the coral displays. We were disappointed to miss the dophins, but never broke the code on... More

The aquariums were very good, though the space for the beluga whales and the walruses did seem very claustrophobic. The highlight was to be the dolphin show ('get in early to avoid disappointment'). We sat down 15 minutes before show time, the show started 20 minutes later with the presenter bringing 4 children down out the audience to meet a... More

The dolphin show was great and the "swimming with the fishes" experience in the glass tunnel was beyond description. Go there.

We had a great day. I suspect we visited at the height of season but I thought it was ok, busy but we could do what we wanted. My 8 and 6 year old really enjoyed it. We were lucky that we had a bit of cloud to make it more bearable when walking around. There were English translations available... More

I love that you walk through a tunnel and are surrounded by swimming fish. The beluga whales are in a tank that is way too small and they look depressed. One whale was just looking through a gated underground winter like a prison room. It was very sad to see these creatures in such a small tank.
