Great place to see the reef without getting wet :).
there are feeding with guides explaining about the fish and other animals in the park.
I think the price is a little high. but for a first time it certainly worth it.

the Underwater Observatory Marine Park is Israel's only underwater obesrvatory and hence it's a must see if you come to Eilat the place hold lot's of tanks with Turtles , Amazonian wild life reef fish and a big shark tank!!!! If you come around noon they feed the sharks ,and they feed the animals in different hours throughout the day!!!
The pinnacle of this small park is the underwater observatory which you see the life under the Red sea!!! It's fun and it's picture friendly !!! you can go up the top of the observatory's tower and see Eilat bay and even dine a small meal over the waves which makes you feel like you’re an a cruise!!!
There is also a 4D cinema in the park that you can see 4D movies on sharks, whales and more!!!
I can sum up and say if your in Eilat you have to go there, worth the short taxi ride there, loads of fun for a small park!!!!!

we spent 4.5 hours at The underwater observatory.
we did the package for the The underwater observatory. coral 2000 (ship), ocenarium (movie) and lunch.

i think this is the main attractions that people should do in Eilat. it shows you exactly what exist underwater which is an amazing world. any kid / teenage i am sure would love it. we went there in June (not in school year) where it no that crowded so we could almost see anything (feeding) with no issues.

Amazing views of all kinds of marine life. If you have kids or like to see marine life, don't miss this. Lunch at the Bar in the Observation desk is the best!!

My husband and I with our 3 teenage children spent a fabulous day here. The underwater observatory was terrific and the best part for all of us. Observing fish from so many different large windows was a real treat and there was a great variety to see. I have been snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef, but this topped that. The tower was fun to climb, allowing a view of the beautiful desert mountains and the sparkling sea below. The rest of the park provided entertainment in the form of shark feeding (only negative, too many people trying to see in too small an area), a movie with motion seats (good fun) a cafe with beautiful food and classy souvenirs (expensive but value for money) a cheaper restaurant (good food), cheaper souvenir shop and more exotic fish species and turtles to see. Take your camera; I have so many wonderful photo's of our day out. Love it!
