Walked all day and thoroughly enjoyed the exhibitions of tank after tank of water living creatures, birds and reptiles. We arrived at 10 and by the time we left it was very much more crowded!! The dolphin show was an unexpected bonus. All ages were catered for. Impressive facility.

The place is "to see", not compulsory, but you can make a short walk into the tunnel between a lot of fish and see all the other exhibits. Not so cheap so take the credit card with you if you have a large family. I payed for 3 persons around 86 euros. But... if you want to eat something very... More

Dolphin show was excellent as was the tropical fish area. The penguin enclosure was a bit sad and it was difficult to view them through the condensation on the windows. All in all, not a bad day considering it is winter.

Very modern and very expensive, but it is just another Aquarium alas if you have been to one you have been to them all - And so expensive to get in with very high food and drink cost when you are in. - Give it a miss

This is quite an expensive attraction and even more so if you are a family of four. As a couple we paid about 68 euros for a joint ticket to the oceonografic and the science park. The complex is impressive and on a day with good weather I would think its a nice day out, however, it was raining and... More

The Oceanografic boasts some pretty fish in adequate environments but nothing can compensate for the appalling distress of the solitary beluga whale, alone and immobile in its small tank beside the dolphin enclosure as if desperate to hear some sociable sounds. Outrageous and unforgivable. The pathetic trained antics of the sealions and the evident boredom of the walruses pale into... More

A good aquarium at a very high price. Look for deals on this one if you can. Try not to go on the weekend.

Great to spend a morning in sunny October in this beautiful park and no queues. There is so much to see - lots of animals, fish and of course the dolphins. The architecture is amazing in the centre of Valencia
