Loved the dolphin show, so sweet! It is sad seeing the beluga whales in such a small captivity. All in all a beautiful aquarium and well kept. Lots to see, great for families and young kids to learn about the ocean and its wonders.

This is a great experience but the mapping is hard to follow. Go at around 1400 to avoid the queues. We found it very interesting but thought provoking too. Especially about our impact on such an important but fragile environment.

My husband, son (13) and I decided to visit Oceanografic on our last afternoon in Valencia. It's a good diversion from visiting churches and art museums but it's an average aquarium. Maybe it's better for famiies with younger chldren? It sits on the end of the attractions that comprise the Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias. The most interesting... More

We have spent a whole day at Oceanografic, we have see a lot of beautifull fish and astonish dolphin show, which brought tears to my eyes. Belugas, sharks, penguins everything is there, just fell the nature.

Amazing attraction. All very good however the dominant language is Valenciano (not spanish) which is only spoken in this part of Spain. This makes it confusing (especially on signs) to understand. The shows were done in Spanish (with very little English) so its impossible to understand what they were saying.

Whether you have kids or just love sea animals and fish, this has to be a must visit. The aquarium caters for everyone. The displays and attractions have been well thought through offering plenty of information and plenty of space for all to see. The dolphin show has to be the highlight of the park.

We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon at the Oceanografic, we spent about 3 hours here looking at all of the superb attractions. The variety on offer is very impressive, from the polar seas to the tropics they have it all. The dolphin show was great to watch, though not in English, which is perfectly fine, the speaker prior to the show... More

Frankly, whilst interesting it was a let down. Very busy and accessible via public transport and the Tourist buses which are recommended. Aviary good but rest of the attractions do not cut the mustard, in our view. Queue in the holiday reason are long. Book tickets first is a sure way to not get uptight
