A few kilometers south to Eilat, the Underground Observatory is a great attraction to the whole family. Take a bottom glass boat tour, enjoy the turtles and shark feeding and don't miss the Oceanarium show.

A really special aquarium, with interesting collections of sharks, fish and other aquatic animals. However, most interesting and special is the underwater observatory of wild fish and corals at around 6m depth. Of course because it's wild you can't guarantee the visibility or the presence...More

Sometimes hotels offer a deal for bundling all the activities of the park together. Otherwise, this is a premium attraction and I wasn't able to find any deals on it.
Is it cheaper to buy tickets online?
