Expensive so book as package with other sites in the park. Cheaper if you book on line before you go as well. Need a full day to see everything since restaurants close at 4pm we missed these. Food expensive. Children will love being up close to these exhibits.

Would recommend buying a discoutned joint ticket for this and the Science Centre, and spend the whole day there, there is so much to see! The Science centre is very much hands on. Both involve lots of walking. Both are expensive but excellent value for money!

The Dolphin show is without doubt the start attraction in the Oceanographic, although the introduction to the show does take a long time. Make sure you are there 30/40 minutes before the start as it does fill up quickly. Everything is well laid out and it is easy to get around the different attractions. Really enjoyed our visit.

If you have been to Seaworld,don't go to this place as it can be disappointing. No water to drinknalthough the heat,you must pay for everything.

Spent an enjoyable afternoon here, not too crowded, just enough to keep adults and children entertained without being too overwhelming. Aquariums, penguins, walruses, aviary, cafe plus all the outside area. We left our car in The city and walked through the park which was lovely but bear in mind it is a long walk and cafés not open during afternoon.... More

This was a well laid out, spacious and so interesting attraction. The tunnels particularly were fantastic, and the children loved interacting with the seals. Dolphin show was ok but have seen better. Only criticism is that you are not supposed to take your own food in- and the food prices were very high especially as the entrance fee isn't cheap.

We'd already visited the brilliant Bioparc zoo so I wasn't sure if the aquarium would feel a bit of a let down in comparison. But I needn't have worried as it proved to be a fantastic day out for my two girls aged five and eight. Many of the viewing areas are underground so away from the sun which is... More

Lots to see at this attraction - beluga whales, walrus, dolphin show, sharks, deep sea fish plus some birds. We visited later in the day 4pm which gave enough time to see all the attractions and it was less crowded.

Valencia oceanografic was such a great experience. It took half a day for visiting the entire structure. It is divided in geographical areas, such as artic, polar, ocean, etc. Particular interesting was entering into a tank that covers the entire room; in this tank, FInally, walruses and seals are spectacular. I suggest not to buy presales tickets from tourist offices... More
