    Lots of Information
    This was a lovely day out. There was so many fish to see, some I haven't seen in person before. I couldn't believe how big they were. The signs were very informative, letting me learn new facts, the only negative was that the signs didn't say the full list of the fish in the tanks. Some of the signs for the English translation were incorrect, something that is expected in a foreign country, but the translation provided was very comical which gave us a good laugh. I loved the airplane that was a real artifact along with the pots, and the music player right before the tunnel. The tunnel was okay, just very crowded with people. The biggest let down was the souvenir shop, there was hardly any souvenirs that said "Antalya Aquarium" and was just the generic souvenirs that you can get for cheap elsewhere in one of the bazaars. The souvenirs here were incredibly expensive, there were some tiny magnets and keyrings both 450 lira (around 14 euros at the time of our visit). Overall it's a good day out that got us around in a good two hours to properly absorb everything.

    Lovely
    We went about 3:45 pm on a week day outside of school holidays. It was very comfortable walking through and seeing all fish. The selection is good you just slowly walk your way through. It was nice and cool in there on a hot summer's day.

    Unique experience, recommend
    We were visiting the Aquarium with family and I really liked it. Never been in such a large aquarium, especially the tunnel. We also saw divers feeding the fish and there were all kind of fish, big sharks, small fish. Really cool! Recommend!

    This is one of the best Aquariums in the world.
    This impressive complex is one of the largest aquariums in the world featuring a huge tunnel aquarium with thousands of types of fish. It is home to more than 200 sharks that are feed at noon daily. An exhibit entitled Oceanride XD Cinema simulates sailing the oceans with a multi-dimensional technology. There are many cafes and restaurants there so that you don't have to break up your visit to leave for a meal. We were very impressed with the quality of this aquarium and the services offered there.

    Not worth the money unfortunately
    There was a few exotic fish to see . the tunnel was nice however there was nothing different to other aquariums . It was nice to be able to feed the small fishes . Max time in there was about an hour too see the fishes . For what we paid via the tour company it was not worth the money .

    Awesome aquarium in Antalya
    What an awesome aquarium! I went through slowly and it took me about 2 hours to finish. There were some extra costs if you wanted to feed fish (I regret not feeding the sting ray, it looked so cool). The fish were all in a great mood and very interactive. I think it was down-season so it wasn't overly busy when I went. When you exit, there is a McDonalds in case you are hungry. Then you can venture back up the ramp for more adventures (I went to the submarine which was a waste of time and then to the wax museum which was pretty cool).

    Antalya aquarium
    The aquarium was very nice and we was lucky enough to see the sharks and other fish being fed at midday. I would recommend this as more a family trip than couples. Also if you see a deal online for tickets under £30 each go for that and not pay at ticket office on the day as it costs £30+ Pros: longest tunnel Cons : no octopus or crabs that I saw

    Good day, let down down by poor lighting in feeding area which was one to the reasons my friend had a fall and hurt himself.
    A great day out walking in the longest tunel in Europe. Seeing sharks and fish get fed, feeding stingrays and coi fish. The building itself has like a madam tussauds style wax museum and a VR style experience being on a submarine. Our ticket we got give us access to the wax museum as well as the aquarium. The aquarium had a really good variety of fish and sharks too. (Personally prefer the Barcelona aquarium as its bigger and has much more to do) The seating area for the shark/fish feeding is poorly lit as my friend fell off and hurt his knee. Someone said that they got a member of staff to come and check on his but know one came. Which was very disappointing. Lucky he has not done any real damage and he is on the mend. I do think that area has to be better lit, I know it can't be too much due to the fish but there was nothing, no signs and poorly lit. Otherwise it was a good day

    Nice aquarium, but the prices are too high.
    The aquarium in Antalya is nice, and there is plenty to see. The ticket price is fair for this type of attraction. However, the prices inside the aquarium are simply too high compared to other tourist spots. You could almost call it robbery. A regular ice cream that costs 2 euros at a kiosk costs over 7 euros there. So, for a family to get 4 ice creams and a coffee, it cost nearly 40 euros. This is simply not acceptable, it's robbery, and we will not be coming back.

Kids love it, probably our 5th visit, look online before to see if any offers and you can also get a combi ticket to visit the other attractions in the same building such as wild park or the snow world. Also if you check feeding times you may get to see them feeding the sharks. There's a burger King at the entrance which is cheap and just up the road is a big shopping center and a big fairground so you could spend the whole day in this area if you wanted. Area is called konyalti

This is one of the biggest rip offs I can remember.

Even if we had paid something like a reasonable 50 euros for a family of 4 to visit this Aquarium I would give it 2 stars at best, but we paid 167 euros although it should be noted this included the 5D submarine ride. More on that later...

The first part of the Aquarium is lots of fish tanks and a few sharks and it was what you would expect from a bog standard Aquarium.

But the real joke was the underwater tunnel that was marketed as the longest in the world. That would be great if it was teaming with sea life but it was almost comically lacking in fish or sharks or anything other than a couple of human divers!!

What's more, there was various things along the way on the very short aquarium tour like petting sting rays which they had the audacity to charge extra for.

Then, after the aquarium we did the 5D submarine ride, this was utterly pathetic. Usually when you go on a 3D right, before you put on the glasses, the screen looks blurry and then sharpens up after you put them on. Nope... The image never improved and some of the "ride" was barely visible it was so blurry and had virtually no 3D effect.

The ride was so lame and unexciting. The chair barely moved in anyway in tune with the direction you went and it was just so unexciting.

I can't express quite how much of a complete tourist money grab this whole thing was. It was just laughably overpriced and verging on criminal at 167 euros.

Unless you enjoy being had, avoid this completely.

I highly recommend visiting Antalya Aquarium - it's an incredible place that offers a lot for the price you pay. The admission fee is quite affordable considering the amazing things you'll get to see. Prepare to be captivated by the stunning displays and a wide variety of fish species.

As someone who has visited numerous aquariums, I can confidently say that Antalya Aquarium stands out as one of the best. The attention to detail and the immersive exhibits create a truly remarkable experience. It's evident that a lot of thought and effort has been put into making this place exceptional.

Antalya Aquarium is a fantastic destination for the whole family. There is something for everyone, regardless of age. Children and adults alike will be mesmerized by the vibrant marine life on display. It's a wonderful opportunity to learn and appreciate the beauty of the underwater world.

The aquarium offers a well-organized and enjoyable visit. The staff members are friendly and knowledgeable, and they are always ready to answer any questions you may have. The facilities are clean, and there are convenient amenities available throughout the venue.

Make sure to allocate enough time for your visit, as there is so much to explore and admire. From the moment you step inside, you'll be immersed in a world of wonder. Antalya Aquarium truly exceeded my expectations, and I'm confident it will provide an unforgettable experience for you and your family.

Overall, Antalya Aquarium is an outstanding attraction that deserves high praise. It's an affordable and exceptional place where you can create lasting memories. Don't miss out on this opportunity to discover the fascinating underwater realm.

Antalya aquarium was one of the rare disappointments we experienced in last 3 weeks staying here. There is a sticker shock at the entrance, we paid about 960 TL for 2 persons to get in. That was approximately 35 Euro per person.
Exhibits are nice but badly overpriced. There is no too much of fish life to see there. After we left we concluded that money was largely wasted. It should cost maybe 100 TL per person and that's it. There are much better values elsewhere.

For example today we visited Antalya Museum and it was amazing! 55 TL per person and you will see mind blowing artifacts.

While the aquarium probably has the "biggest tunnel" in the world, it it an absolute tourist trap. They like foreigners so much they charge them 3 times+ the price locals pay (more than 30 euros vs. approx. 8 euros). good for kids, but try to avoid if you care about discrimination.

The prices are too high. 38$ per person
If you are a family i highly recommend you NOT visit
Its just a waist of money. The place in general is ok, there is no any special thing. The aquarium is quite small, you can see only normal fishes.

Despite having read many reviews that the aquarium was over priced, we still went ahead and planned a visit with my kids aged 10 and 7. In fact, we gave priority to aquarium over other historical sites despite having come all the way from India to Turkey.

It was not at all fascinating. The only reason we went there was to see and know more about the fishes in and around Turkey. Turkey having double coastline and a very different sorts of seas around it, I expected the aquarium to be a rich source of knowledge and learning experience.

But, the aquarium is REALLY DISAPPOINTING. No great learning experience at all.
The fishes there were too few and of the common kind that one sees in any aquarium in the world. Absolutely not worth the admission ticket amount.

The world's largest tunnel is just that - a tunnel. Not many fishes.

The only saving grace was that the kids could feed the fishes and baby sting rays (for additional cost). All of us enjoyed the experience.

Overall, disappointing experience.

Way too expensive, felt ripped off, don't bother.

Fish were impressive and the surroundings very pleasant, but way, way overpriced - we paid around £60 for a couple (top ticket is £140 for two). With limited mobility and we took our time doing the circuit but this was just over an hour. Massive queues (chaos), with no organisation, the route starts on the 2nd floor, there is no lift, little information and too many up-sell attempts - not cool.

We love aquariums, but felt ripped off with this one. If you are trying to recoup your Covid losses Antalya Aquarium, this is NOT the way to do it.

Skip this visitor attraction and have TWO very nice evening meals for 4 instead.

I agree with everyone saying it’s overpriced but the only thing that made it worth it for me and my husband was the look on our 8 month daughters face when she saw the lights and the fishes. She loved the black tipped fin sharks and we spent a while on those. The tunnel isn’t all that special as hardly anything going on inside the tunnel.

The biggest complaint I have is the man who served us when we bought tickets on the evening of 23rd April was the WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE man. He hates his job. He hates people. He was rude to my husband when we were trying to decide which card to pay with and our internet was playing up. It wasn’t even like there was anyone waiting behind us. He kept rolling his eyes and exhaling due to being agitated. We almost didn’t go in coz of him. He needs to be taken off that desk!

We bought a combo package through Tiqets which allowed access to all the attractions on site - i.e. the aquarium, the reptile world, the wax museum, the ocean '5d' cinema, the snow section (which we skipped) and possibly the flying carpet, though we didn't try that).

The aquarium was great fun. It's not vast, but its a perfectly decent aquarium, with some great eels, some fund sharks, and the tunnel is fun, with the sunken plane and shipwreck. We spent perhaps an hour to and hour and a half there.

Because we had the package ticket, we added on the 5d cinema 'ride' (actually great fun), and the reptile house (small, but impressive collection of snakes, which was a hit with the kids!), and sauntered through the wax work area for 10 mins because why not, when it was included.

It all made for a really good fun 3 hours, and actually I thought that on our particular deal (cheaper than booking directly) it was actually reasonable value. I can see how if you paid full price for just the aquarium you might fell short changed. But don't be put off, find a discounted package, and enjoy the trip out - perfect for a rainy day.
