This place is a complete tourist trap with hundreds of kids running and screaming all over the place. save yourself time by buying tickets online and avoid the huge rush to get in. They say its the second biggest oceanario in the world but its not the second best aquarium in the world.

No matter if you have children, if you are on a honeymoon or even on a business trip. You HAVE to find the time to go to the Oceanario it's a stunning experience. No words can describe it.

This is worth a visit. There is a vast amount of sea life to view, plenty to keep all ages happy and interested. Book on-line to save time on queuing, although the queue moves fast.

Excellent aquarium couldn't fault. Very good selection of fish etc. also very relaxing. Only downside is that it can get very crowded in certain areas but that is to be expected.

The place is beautiful, on the river bank on a beautiful part of the city. You can see the oceanario is well kept and the animals are well treated. It is really worth a few hours to visit!

Fantastic oceanarium with an astonishing variety of creatures. Beautifully presented with just the right level and amount of information. Watching the sea otters being fed was just one of the highlights!

Giant aquarium with fantastic view of the sea world. Children just love to see it and feel as if inside the ocean. A place worth visiting.
