Booked tickets online as it works out cheaper and quicker entry time in all honesty needn't have worried about that as due to the pandemic it was a lot quieter than usual. This place blows the London Aquarium "out of the water" pardon the pun. A huge variety of sea life including but not limited to Sharks, eels, jellyfish, starfish, penguins, octopus, stingrays and amphibious creatures. Very large complex with plenty to see, based on oceans of the world such as Pacific, Mediterranean, Black sea, Red sea, Marmara, Aegean etc, take your time and marvel at various sea life creatures in all their colours, forms and guises, truly spectacular. The visit culminated in an Amazon jungle theme. The family and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Akvaryum and I would most certainly recommend this place to others. As we were running a little short of time we took a taxi to the complex on our return we jumped on the Marmaray line from Florya Akvaryum station which is only a few minutes walk away from the Aquarium, this took us back into town.

The ticket price was approx 100 TL when I visited the aquarium in November 2019 & and my son entered for free (1 year). we enjoyed our time especially my boy. you may need around 4 hours to go through all sections of the aquarium, different animals were there not only from sea life. There were too many school visits to the aquarium as I was visiting during the weekday, so you need to be aware of this thing when you plan to visit them. Later we went to the attached shopping mall were many international brands available. plus there is sea side walkway with cafes and restaurants where you can enjoy the outdoor seating & the sea view.

It’s unlike any other aquarium I have ever been to. It was massive, with different sections such as caves, the North Pole and the rainforest. Such an immersive experience. They take your picture at the door which is available to purchase at the end. Perfect for a day out with family and is even wheelchair accessible as well as having nice food shops all around. It also has a sea view which was really cool and for 1 Turkish lira you can look through the looking view into the sea. We paid at the door, 109turkish lira which is roughly £13, and we spent 3 hours there. It was a little far from the city centre but the journey was worth it.

This is a great place to take a child for an adventure under the sea. Ours was 2.5 at the time we visited, and he was absolutely enthralled. Healthy fish of all kinds roam the waters; capybaras dot the rainforest landscape, and penguins entertain in the polar exhibit. A day of pure joy was enjoyed by all.
