We did debate whether this was overpriced but after getting the discount tourist card im so glad we did. We had an amazing time and saw so much. The tunnels were fabulous especially the shark one, really good dolphin show too. Food kiosks were pricey for boring chips and pizza etc.

The "park" is well organized and has some pretty building. The oceanic are as well. There is nothing exceptional, but it is not boring. The underwater tunnel is nice. I just well embarrassed by seing 2 white whales (?) swimming fast in tight circles, on and on, and looking stressed and unhappy. Their tanks are too small for them, and... More

We debated over the entrance fee which was about E27 per person. But I can see why as the site is enormous and broken down into different sea areas - Mediterranean, Arctic, Antartica etc, there is a beluga whale housed there which is amazing. There was a dolphin display and there is also an aviary.

This is a great attraction although a little expensive. There are many separate buildings which have huge aquariums and a vast amount of sea life. Visited on a weekday and was very quiet.This was perfect as this gave more time to stroll through. Would recommend a visit.

The Aquariums are amazing! The animals really have space and seeing Beluga whales for the first time was great!

We visited as a family on a lovely sunny Spring day. The site is well laid out and takes you through a logical series of sites: Mediterranean, Wetlands, Temperate Regions, Tropics, Red Sea, plus the Open Ocean. There are also Dolphin Shows, penguins, sea lions, seals an more. The star attraction for me was the Beluga Whale. An amazing creature,... More

Great attraction , will take 3-4 hours . One of the best aquariums we have visited. Not on a metro stop but you can walk there along the parl or take a taxi which are cheap.

When we first arrived we thought that the entrance fee was a little steep, but we realised pretty quickly after entering that it was well worth the money. Huge underground aquariums, an outdoor aviary containing birds I'd never even heard of, a twice daily dolphin show...loads to see and do. Make sure you give yourself a good three hours there...

This is a place well worth visiting. Most of the exhibits are below ground level in huge tanks. As aquariums go; it's got to be one of the world's best. As well as the exhibits there are daily shows - we went to the dolphin show which was fun. Underwater tunnels connect exhibits and you find yourself surrounded by fish... More

The Oceanografic is Europe's largest aquarium and it really is massive. There is a walk through tunnel that goes on for maybe 50 metres, with some seriously large sharks. There are also sealions, plus belugas and even a walrus. The penguins look a bit cooped up, but other than that it's nice to see the fish / animals all having... More
