The underwater boat is very unusual built but at the end very cool. You can see all the life that is under the sea. All the marine underwater flora and fauna. Fishes, sea urchins, rocks and so on. Is not very expensive and suitable for both children and adults. I recommend this attraction especially for the families with kids.

35e to swim with sea lions. Approx 15 mins dependant on the size of group. You get a 'free kiss' from sea lion if you do this experience. With a wet suit and life jacket you go in a small pool like area and 2 sea lions join you. Only one of them does tricks with you. Kiss, dance and... More

Went here with partner and 2 young kids to be told the boat was out of order and they didn't know how long untill it would be working. Paid 5euro each for a kiss with the sealion then fed the fish but kids were very disappointed about the boat however the harbour is nice.

Unfortunately, we had several days without the trip, due to a mechanical issue with the boat. Being an island, parts are not readily available for such an attraction and so we had to... More

Thankyou for your recent trip to the Oceanarium Explorer. We are very sorry that your older children did not enjoy our 30 minute glass bottom boat as much as your 4 year old did.
