Overview

Crete’s aquarium, Cretaquarium, opened in December 2005. Belonging to a large European family of aquariums, the Cretaquarium offers its visitors the unique chance to plunge into the great marine world of the Mediterranean. From the big hunter sharks to the tiny seahorses, the sensational jellyfish, the diversity of marine life is set off against underwater Cretan seascapes such as the rock formations at Matala( South Crete)and the sea bed at Vai(North East Crete).

As aquariums go this wasn't the most expensive, there were several large tanks and a lot of smaller ones. There was information about human impact on the seas. There was not the variety I would have expected but there was some redevelopment going on. Surprisingly...More
