It really is the biggest complex of its kind in Europe. It might take a while to tour the whole place, but it's worth visiting. And while you're there, you should see the dolphin show!

My son and I really enjoyed the whole experience. Marvellous to see the fish, sharks, sting rays, walruses, penguins, whales, etc up-close. their tanks are ginormous and with clear glass that gives an amazing insight into how efforlessly they move around in their habitat. The dolphin show was well-worth watching and nicely put together.

The Oceanografic is one in the complex of four modern buildings offering exhibits and museum for the visual and theatrical arts, music, sciences and in this complex, marine life. The exhibits are divided not so much by geographical areas as by the type of aquatic life, such as swamps or lakes, oceans are again divided by their particularities. Two highlights... More

Went here on a day trip from Benidorm and loved the various buildings in the area. The Oceanografic was fairly quiet when we went and we got to see all the exhibits and animals but the more I looked the sadder I felt for them. Whales and walruses are far too big and intelligent to be held in prison like... More

If you like a bit to see the animals that live in the sea, this is the place to be. You'll be surrounded (literally in some cases) by great sea animals: sharks, belugas, dolphins, seals, sea lions, fishes,...

I have annual pass for all the complex that includes Oceanografic, Museum of science and Hemisferic. So I visit them pretty often. I love Oceanografic for it's amazing shows that are very usual for summer. Last time I have seen night show with dolphins which included laser show, sand show and dance of synchrone swimmers with dolphins. Generally Oceanografic itself... More

Plenty of fish, birds and ocean mammals to intrigue everyone in your family. Most of the exhibits are underground with great mood music and ambience. Wide variety of species from all over the world make this place almost as good as the Monterey Bay aquarium.
