Sealife centre, small but good.

Quite a small sealife centre but packed with all forms and types of sea creatures. They have hourly feeding displays of various types of creatures

This is a small, but very varied aquarium. What we liked best, was the feeding of the sharks and otters. And no, not to worry, they did not feed the otters to the sharks... Staff is very committed and this is one of the few places in Spain where staff command of the english language is excellent, and so is... More

We enjoyed our visit here, and having been to ones in the UK, found this one extremely packed with lots of different fish etc.. Its not huge but well worth a visit. We were lucky enough to be there when it was otter feeding time, and watched as they did little tricks for their treats. The handlers were very good... More

We spent about an hour walking around. It's not massive but had a lot to look at. We booked only before we went so the price was reasonable and included Mini Golf on the roof which was lots of fun. The little cafe was fairly priced too and the staff were very helpful and knowledgable about the species and exhibits.
