oceanografic is great. loved the dolphin show and the wide variety of in and outdoor things to see. the food in the submarine restaurant was also good if a little pricy.

I think it was bit overpriced. The architecture and layout of the Oceanografic was magnificent but it has less sealife than you might think. The dolphin show was good and it was quite something in the tunnels where sharks were swimming over your head! I felt bad for the walruses and beluga whale though as they didn't seem to have... More

The Oceanografic was a pleasant afternoon. The exhibits are a bit limited except for the fish tunnel. If you have ever been to Monterrey or Baltimore or even Genoa in Italy you will see a difference. The dolphin show, English and Spanish spoken, was entertaining. Still a diversion from history for a short time! The whole complex of buildings in... More

Very disappointed. seems very old fashioned, small tanks for some very large mammals and you can clearly see they are not being stimulated. One shark looks deformed, paint peeling from bottom of the outside pool. Not a grea experience and not one I would recommend

It is a little pricey but at least the money goes towards keeping the animals healthy and happy. The dolphin show was brilliant and they look like they enjoy it. I don't believe the animals appear mal-treated as some reviews claim. They seemed content to me. We went during off peak season so it wasn't busy. Overall an enjoyable trip... More

I've never seen such constructions before. It seems like a real city In the future. Everything is made of glass. And all the buildings are surrounded by water. It's something very specific.

Make sure you arrive for the dolphin show - worth the admission by itself. Great experience for children

Clever design in a fairly small area links the various "oceans" of the world with easy access /views of the sea creatures including now obligatory unerwater tunnel

Big place, has all the aquatic life in it and then some. It's tunnel under the water is just fantastic! Situated next to the City of Arts and Sciences, it's deffinitely a place you have to visit if you have family, kids, or just by yourself. Prepare yourself for at least 3 hours enjoying this place.
