Amazing! Incredible place to visit. Small and not what you would expect an aquarium to be like at all. More of a privately run rescue & rehabilitation centre for reptiles etc and thoroughly brilliant time spent here learning about the creatures in residence during our visit. Also a chance to hold some of them! Wonderful idea. Brilliant to educate people... More

Only €10 for an adult and child, and you can go for a return visit for the rest of your visit. We got to handle several reptiles and john was very helpful. We did go back for a visit the next day to watch the animals being fed. I suggest everyone visits here.

If you are an animal lover this is a must visit. You get a ticket that is valid for 2 weeks, so essentially your whole holiday. I recommend going twice, one on a Tuesday or Friday at 10.30, this is feeding time at the aquarium and on these days the snakes get fed (if they want to eat!) Then go... More

Hidden away near the spar and taxi rank in hersonissos was this aquarium, looks nothing on the outside but inside john and his wife couldn't be more welcoming, they rescue animals, and you can handle them all, and if you are a keen photographer, john will set it up so you can take fabulous pics of the snakes, chameleons, etc...

The owners have rescued these reptiles and fish and it is totally a hands on experience! My son love it and held his first snake and lizard, and both at the same time. Although it is small I highly recommend a visit especially if you have small children.

I recently visited here with friends and really enjoyed myself. I got to hold snakes and Lizards and fell in love with a blind turtile. It is a small venue but the couple who run it are really friendly and informative. Well worth a visit.
