“Great variety”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

A tad outdated but the sealife that lives here is well selected. Alot of large specimens that make you wish you were in the ocean right then and there.

“A good place to spend a few hours, a bit outdated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

This was the second visit in four years, nothing was new, and some of the grounds are looking a little dilapidated. But the fish remain interesting, and the observatory is an interesting idea, to see the coral and fish in their natural environment. The movie is okay, suited for younger kids. You don't really need more than a couple of hours, but pleasant all the same.

“Breathtaking and educational”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

The variety and quality of marine life unique to the Red Sea was breathtakingly beautiful! The great diversity includes giant sea turtles, stingrays as well as colorful coral reef tropical fish and other unique marine life such as octopus and piranha and even sea horses and baby alligators. This was the highlight of our visit to Eilat, facinating both for adults and children. This is not to be missed!

“A must when in Eilat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

This is a great place (if you are with kids - even better). We got there in the morning and ended up staying untill 4:00PM - a full day of excitment.
From the great 3D / Vibrating chairs movie, to going down the observatory.
Don't miss feeding of the sharks - very exciting!
This place is one of the "must be checked" when in Eilat.
