Huge - really blooming huge. If you want to visit a well run and beautifully kept Aquarium, then this one wins hands down really. Plenty of huge zones (Arctic, Caribbean, Mediterranean, etc) with clean, well labelled exhibits and no grotty, grimy,, sad little tanks. The orcas - well, no, whales shouldn't really, in my view, be in captivity, but if... More

Probably one of the best aquariums in the world and also the largest, at least in Europe. If you have time, this is worth a visit. There are so many differnt types of fish. You often feel as if you are right there with them.

Was in Valencia on a citytrip, solo. Visited L'Oceanogràfic as I like to go to zoos in every city I visit. Nice architecture, a lot of information displayed -also in English. Dolphin show is nice, but nothing I haven't seen yet. Though for children it can be a great experience, certainly if they are 'chosen' to be part of the... More

I thought this was a great place to go. The dolphin show was really cool. One of he aquariums was lacking fish. But overall I had a good time

27 Euros is pricey, but this aquarium is worth every penny. Shark tanks over your head and all around you, live corals moving... it is one of the best aquariums I have ever seen. And, it's in the City of Arts and Sciences, with incredible architecture!

Worth a visit for the shark tunnel alone! Separated into different sections, Artic, Oceans, Mediterranean and Tropics. Far too hot the day we visited to appreciate the above ground activities though!

A constantly surprising maze of outdoor and indoor environments, underground immersive aquariums... stunning design. Highlights are the temperate bird zone where you share space with gorgeously coloured spoonbills, ibises, turtles, oystercatchers etc; the undersea tunnels with sharks swimming above you; the badtempered sealions ... a great family trip

I was going to skip this as I am from California and have been to many wonderful aquariums, but when I got here decided to go in. It was a wonderful experience! The cost is E$25.00, Senior Discount E$21.00, and a childrens price as well. Be watchful of their operating hours, In May, they close at 6:00 PM, and the... More

Wonderful architecture, amazing animals (fish, marine mammals, birds and other), a spectacular dolphin show, hypnotic tunnels with fish dancing over your head... Valencia offers a lot - the Silk Exchange gothic masterpiece, the elegant buildings in the city centre, the incredible garden created in the riverbed of the Turia river, a huge beach that you can easily reach by foot,...

Birds, fishes, dolphins, pinguins and turtles are the main subject here! All the animals are well treated and can be seen at a very close distance! You can also enter the cage where the birds stay and enjoy the wildlife. There are dolphin shows throughout the day, they take place in the biggest dolphinarium of Europe! The whole park takes...
