I know some might have seen a better aquarium or been in the real sea, but it's beautiful spend some time and relax watching those lovely creatures ... or letting your babys enjoy the lovely zone made for them, in fact you too can go to that zone. or simply, have a walk by the Gulf ... enjoy the sun...

Children get to learn a lot and also get a first hand experience of the joy of seeing fishes of all types all in one place. A dream world not only for children but for adults as well. A very relaxing experience.
