The building is at the tip of contemporary buildings complex. Ensure you get at least 3 hours to walk around. Fur seal likes to attract and then splash on people. Visit restaurant in the underground to have amazing experience eating fish, while lots of other fish is swimming around and looking at you

I really liked the dolphins show. And to find out that this was the biggest Dolphinarium in Europe was a bonus. The Aviary was also a place were I spent quite some time. But what I liked the most at the Oceanografic were the two Beluga whales, they were adorable. The Oceanografic is a must see if you visit Valencia.

What an amazing place, I have never seen such a range of marine life in one place. An incredible learning experience, the tunnel through the shark enclosure and the closeness to sharks swimming overhead will be a lasting memory, that was as close to a shark as I ever want to get.

Great day out. Loads to see. You can easily spend a day here. I know some people say it is expensive but we thought it was well worth the money.

Amazing place with so much to see. We spend some 4 hours (incl lunch) and enjoyed both the animals and the surroundings. Great set-up with lots of room for some extraordinary species of fish and mammals. never saw so many sharks in a basin. But also enjoyed the large birdcage with its spoonbills and egrets. Sorry we did not bring... More

It's a nice aquarium. A great range of creatures. Nice design too. But I don't think it's the world's best aquarium or even close to it. And an almost 30euro ticket for it is a bit steep we felt. The Dolphin show was good. But the commentary dragged a bit. It was also mostly in Spanish so made no sense... More

This place will leave you speechless... Whales and Walruses up close... walking under aquariums full of sharks and stingrays and every sort of sea creature. A true emersion experience. Did a hotel rate that included two tickets thru nearby AC Marriott which cut the cost but it would have been worth full price. A real treasure.

I think it's disgusting that that nothing has been done about this. When I walked into the Antarctic section to see two whales in a tank not even close to being big enough for them what I saw was very upsetting. The beautiful white beluga whale staring through a small square barred window. Not moving away just in one spot... More

We stayed in Valencia at the end of August, we hit a freak heat wave and the temperatures got to 45* we thought of going to the aquarium, however, was advised that with the heat being as hot as it was, meant that it would be really uncomfortable. Our daughter saw one of the leaflets which showed that they had... More
