“A must when visiting Eilat”
Reviewed February 7, 2014 via mobile

This place is just beautiful. For those who do not scuba dive, this is a window to the underwater world. Even I, as a frequent diver, enjoy visiting here, because you can observe the fish from really close without scaring them off. The place is beautifully maintained and the variety of aquarium tanks, in addition to the underwater observatory itself, give you a chance to see corals' true colors, without the bleaching that characterizes natural corals in polluted seas. Looking forward to the new and improved sharks tank.

“Unbelivable beauty”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

Despite all the stores trying to sell you stuff, this is truly something you must experience and see with your own eyes! I advise just purchasing the admission and instead of going with the glass bottom boat/sub, drive up the street 1/4 mile to the park with snorkeling. Cheaper and a much better experience! Some of the demos are conducted in just Hebreww, others are in Hebrew AND English, depending on the guide

“The 7th wonder of the world”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

We didn't just went in the observatory we took the submariner and cruised the bottom of the Red Sea which was something from the Discovery Channel.

“Nice day with kids”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

This is a very nice park. It is small enough to cover in a few hours, including all activities offered. The sights from the observatory are amazing.
The only issue is the entrance fee, which is outrageously expensive ($27USD/adult).

“Nice family place to visit”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

Great for all ages. Easy to walk, well organized, clean. Lots of guides and talks in English, as well as other languages. What a busy place it is under the sea. Almost as good as donning a snorkel and going under the sea yourself!
