“Nemo!”

Aquarium Finisterrae
Ranked #7 of 79 things to do in La Coruna
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed July 4, 2014

I went to the Aquarium Finisterrae in May 2012 with my friend. She doesn't like aquariums, but we agreed that in return for going there, I'd have to put up with her watching the Eurovision Song Contest.

Really good aquarium, lots of interesting tanks with fish etc in them. My friend took great delight in pointing at clownfish and shouting "Nemo!"

The highlight was when she got scared by baby cuttlefish squirting out ink and jumped backwards about 9 feet from a standing start.

Interesting displays (although there didn't appear to be any English translation - I speak Spanish so not a problem), I could have spent a lot longer there wandering around. Outside there are some seals, and good views across to the Torre de Hercules. I would recommend visiting, its well worth it.

No english translation and no indication for the tour. Good restaurant and coffee shop. Good suvenirs shop.

Worth money and time!

Small aquarium with good selection of fish, good interpretation (only in Spanish), relaxed atmosphere.

Good value attraction - €10. It's set in a spectacular coastal setting. It apparently has the largest salt water tank in Europe - it was impressive, but not quite as spectacular as larger public aquariums elsewhere - Sydney, Cape Town etc. The seals were fun to see. No English translations on any of the exhibits. Lovely restaurant with beautiful views, which was also good value.

Definitely worth a visit if you like that sort of thing!

Whilst it's not exactly Sea World Florida it is an interesting place to spend a couple of hours and good value for money
