“Brilliant day with the kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

The Oceanario is located in this beautiful and spacious area which meant walking there from the Metro was part of the day out.
The only problem we found was that there were too many adults (probably all the kids back to school) who weren't particularly kind to let the kids in front to see.

“Great for all ages!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Absolutely beautiful aquarium! Well laid out and informative - spent the entire afternoon there. Staff were great and even though it's a little pricey we found it well worth the visit. Will go back again just to see the gigantic tank in the centre!

“Biggest fish tank I've ever seen!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Well worth a visit. I'm no Aquarian geek but it was very interesting to see. Also if you get up here there are great views of the bridge and also a pleasant stroll along the river front.
