Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Hold your breath and dive into the fantastic underworld of the sea to discover the most incredible and curious animals. There is so much to see! From the amazing vantage of a walkthrough underwater tunnel it is easy to imagine it is you, rather then the fish, that are on display. Housing more than 30 spectacular displays and over 5,600 creatures it takes visitors on a journey from river and coastline to the ocean depth.Our amazing creatures are waiting to welcome you at Sea Life Porto.

“Compact size but well stocked”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2012

Surprising to see such a well presented aquarium in Porto, it's certainly set up to help kids with their education of marine life - but no reason for this to stop adults attending on their own.

Tickets are valid for the 'day', so if you are with children and the climate changes for the worse you can go back in again.

“Sea life Porto”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2011

I just want that more people know about this very interesting place, do visit it while in Porto, with children or without. It much more fun with children, but everybody can find something interesting. I'm professional and visit a lot of Aqauaria, and can say that one in Porto is among the best. Visit web-site for tickets and direction.

“life and colours from the depths”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2011

Sea Life Porto is a perfect destination if you are looking for a way to escape from an overwhelming work week. Here you will be welcomed in a soothing atmosphere, where fish swim in the rhythms of the music. It's a good way to experience the misterious creatures of the rivers and oceans of Portugal, to meet fish that you had only seen in movies and to stay closer to dangerous fish like piranhas and to learn more about their lives.
