The aquarium tunnels are amazing-- just like being underwater with all the fish swimming around you! And it wasn't wall-to-wall people like at Sea World. We were able to see everything we wanted to with only moderate numbers of people around us-- no having to fight crowds!

An amazing aquarium designed to make you feel you are actually in the tanks with all the fish. Sharks glide over your head as you walk though a glass tunnel. There is so much to see and wonder at. I wouldn't bother with the food outlets as they were not cheap and rather "corporate" in style. The gift shops were... More

Sorry fellow reviewers, but my husband, 2 kids (12 & 14) and I all went because it was listed as a 'must see' and the 'largest in Europe'. We left in an hour. Walked thru as fast as possible, and all 4 of us felt it was a huge waste of time. 27 Euro per person! Waste of money too.

Everything here is very educational, comprehensive and beautiful. Here we saw unique animals, amazing ideas, design, history. The price is a little high, but not enough time to see everything in one day. We enjoyed ourselves. Titanic museum impressed me a lot.

This place has something for everyone - the wow factor of the enormous shark tunnel, the education factor with huge amounts of information on the fish, their environment, how the oceans work etc on wall displays and in the audio guide, entertainment in the dolphin pool, and also attractions both inside and outside to suit all weathers. To make the... More

Well worth a days visit. Make sure you get to the Dolphin show. The tunnels are excellent. Sharks and Wrays just above your heads.

the oceanigrafico of Valencia is a must see place. Though a little overpriced, the visit was nice and worth the time. Dolphin Show included, it will take a couple of hours for you and yours to visit the entire place. Recommended visit time for out of town visitors is starting in May, lunch times better as Spanish people have lunch... More

The aquarium is pretty amazing, just a little bit pricey at 27€. It is nice how they place different regions and really do have a lot of different sea creatures. Worth it to check out
