Wonderful!

We enjoyed our visit to the Oceanografic! Make sure you wear comfortable shoes- lots of walking! Allow yourself plenty of time-a full day is needed to do it justice!

Large, immaculate and impressive. The dolphin show is not too "show business", with a few Green messages thrown in. Goodness knows how the city council affords to run it -- but that goes for most of the attractions in Valencia!

Worth having a look. Beautiful species and architecture. Unfortunately Unorganised park, the map doesn't respond to the attractions so it's a waste of time . Everything is in Spanish. The staff was very rude and impatient in the information centre. And there was no one in the park to ask for information . The park closes really early 6pm in... More

Visited this park on Wednesday this week and thought the whole experience was great. Dolphin show was great and the variations of animals on display were terrific.

Thought the entrance price very steep. Dolphin show was the highlight but missed quite a bit due to it all being in Spanish. Small kids would enjoy.

No need going on about how good this place is, especially the dolphin show, as the reviews speak for themselves. However if you attend and want to pay on card...make sure you bring ID! I tried paying on card as I was saving the cash for taxi's etc but needed ID with me which I didn't have. Just a heads... More

Visited this place with my husband and my parents. We've been before but about 7 years ago. We arrived about 1pm and the queues were pretty small and fast moving. We went straight to see the Dolphin show as it was only on at 11:30, 1:30 and 6pm. It was very good and they seem to look after them very... More

This was enjoyable for the whole family. Pretty good value for money. We spent half a day here to cover everything. The dolphin show was brilliant however be aware if you don't know Spanish language this is not in English. Even so it was still enjoyable however the kids missed out on the educational aspect of the show due to... More
