but I feel sad for the dolphins and belugas. Not sure if I would repeat it, as I start to not enjoy this. It is not comparable to see them in freedom (obviously much more difficult).

Apparently this is the largest aquarium in Europe, and it is indeed vast. We could have spent more than a day here. It is split into two levels. The ground is predominantly outside, with a series of pools and small pavilions, but where all the main action is is underground, this is where the aquarium are. The place is divided... More

We only had a couple of hours but you could easily spend a day here. A huge aquarium with all sorts of creatures and a great dolphin show to delight the kids. Located at the end of the huge park that runs through the city and near the beach.

The cost of the ticket in the season goes up to 27 euros per visit of an adult, in December you can go there for 12 euros which is acceptable. The place doesn't offer anything unique, it has big fish tanks, a show of dolphins and a tiny place for penguins.

Oceanografic is one of Valencia's most famous sights, and it's a nice place to go with family or friends, as it takes around 4 hours to see everything.

If you haven't been to the aquariums in the Florida parks then this is a amazing place to go, although if you are going in the summer you may get hot and find yourself uncomfortable so try and pick a day when it's not so hot and a little overcast! I have been twice over 6 years and I still... More

The write sounded excellent but we were both disappointed in this attraction. It kind of feels half done/half full - we have been to much better facilities. Please note that they claim the one of the biggest dolphinarium in the world which may be true but you have to go to a dolphin show to both see the dolphins and... More

The architecture is fascinating, and it's located only a 30minute stroll (or 10min bus ride) from the center. It's expensive but with the 3tickets together (Oceanographic, Science Museum, and Hemosferic) we got 10% discount. There are many parks better than this, but it's unique in showing "all" sorts of water-wildlife. I liked the Mediterranean the best, and walking through the... More

The Oceanographic is an impressive facility and well worth a visit during a stay in Valencia. It houses many marine mammals and is located within the Arts and Sciences park, south of the city centre and easily accessible by car or public transport. The whole area was renovated and developed in recent years and has undergone a revival. I've visited... More
