Our family of 4 spent the afternoon here and although it was a nice afternoon, overall I think it was expensive for what it was. We did everything except the glass bottom boat. Tip: we purchased our tickets online on their website while we were still in the parking lot, and we saved 10 NIS per ticket...so about 10$ overall. I'm glad we went but it's not something we would need to do again. The underwater observatory was pretty cool...but so was swimming a little further south at a public beach where the fish were AMAZING. It was chilly, but beautiful.

It was really interesting to see all the corals, sharks and fish.Very children friendly place. Spend two hours with no problem. Not longer.

Absolutely nothing special. Waste of time. A lot of tourists. Narrow observation Windows. Some animals are kept in overcrowded habitats.

It is a bit expensive (99 NIS), but I think it´s worth it. I would not say it´s outstanding, because I have visited some aquariums in the past, but you get to see the turttles, the sharks and the tropical fishes. That was the most interesting for me. If you have kids, that´s a must!
Easy reachable from Eilat on the bus 15 (15min trip for 4.9 NIS). And it´s open everyday, until 17/18.
One of the things I liked most was the possibility of going on top of the tower and taking nice pics at the sunset ;)

Great experience for adults and kids. A chance to learn about the importance of the life in the sea.
