“a must see if you come to eilat”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

amazing to see all the marine life just under the sea! we were the from 9 am and left around 4 and we were not bored. the oyster opening is a nice touch where you can choose your own oyster, its opened and the pearl from it is put on a neclace in a pendant. my girls loved these and we ended up with 4! the fish are just amazing and my kids loved the turtles too we had the inclusive lunch which although in canteen style was filling and tasty. if you have your photo taken at the booth you can even make a return visit for free within 3 days.

“See the sea life of the Red Sea”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

There is a large shark tank, sea turtle tanks, reef fish tank... The jellyfish tank with blue lighting was really cool and triply to watch. The life of the Amazon was very cool - anaconda, piranha, baby crocs...
The undersea observatory section is very cool, some 15-20 feet under the water surface you can see fish and corals big and small - barracuda, butterfly fish, parrot fish...
The only negative is the price is quiet hefty.

“Interesting to visit”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Nice sharks in a bid glass pool, interesting movie about sharks, watchtower that goes under the sea surface. You can see a reef with many bright fishes through large underwater windows.

“Great place for a full day”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

Interesting and well maintained.
Many underwater creatures and fish, each are fed at different hours.
Better bring food with you, as the restaurant could be better...

“Lovely place to visit”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

This place is my favorite. They were very nice although something went wrong with our schedule, they organized themselves and found a solution, which isn't something lot of people in Israel have been ready to do.
