Great attraction

Great attraction but you must make sure you have enough time to get around everything... We ran out of time and missed parts out.

Lots of oceanic animals to see, apparently one of main marine ecosystems of the world. Manatees, penguins, dolphins, sea lions, birds, to name a few. There's a dolphin show, i've seen better but it's an entertaining watch, especially for children. I found the architecture of the building also interesting and it's nice to just walk around the complex especially on... More

For about 45 min you can attend a live exhibition of trained dolphins and their instructors. Recommended to go with children as the y make children part of the show as well :)

We were disappointed as the only show available to us was the dolphin show ( it was enjoyable ) Apart from that, very little to see. For 2 hours entertainment, it was over priced.

As an animal lover I have mixed up feelings about places like that and was hesitating a lot before we bought the tickets to visit Oceanografic. The place is well organized and it's really cool to see in real some exotic species. The arcitc world was definitely my favorite attraction- the girl who was feeding the beluga whale was deffinitely... More

This is by far the biggest and best 'water-world' we have ever visited. It's not just an aquarium, it has many species of birds and water fowl in the outdoor parks. That said, we found the aquarium section amazing with huge tanks connected by transparent underwater tunnels. We could journey from cold water and temperate zones through to the wonderful... More

Visited the Oceanografic on 6th which was a public holiday so very quiet which meant we could see more! Wet lands was closed when we where there the price maybe should have been a little cheaper! Dolphin show was excellent very clever restaurant very expensive best to take a picnic with you! The fish and shark pools all great.

Thank elizabethanne206
