Found the place by accident when walking in the marina area. What a find! By far the best layout I have ever seen. It offered a fascinating glimpse into Mediterranean sea life as well as the tropical, all well laid out in a logical order....More

Done in less than an hour! The underwater tunnel is good and the moving floor is a unique idea but other than this there is just not much to this aquarium! I was looked forward to seeing the penguins but they actually just looked really...More

The aquarium kept us and our 6 month old entertained for a few hours. We enjoyed our time, but having visited other aquariums it was nothing special. It was very dark but the exhibits were nice and it's always cool to see people swimming amongst...More

The aquarium is OK. The display is nice, but not more. There are no special attractions and the jellyfish exhibition is poor. Can be skipped.

Being so crowded it was definitely not worth visiting. Otherwise it was ok. Also there are people complaining about the line. Indeed it was huge, but I bought the ticket online and waited under a minute.

Never saw so much marine life together. Sharks looming above my head. 1000s of fish species, hundreds of sea insects. Amazing

€20 per adult, totally overpriced! Extremely crowded, couldn't get to see 90% of the exhibits. Very few (if any) interactive exhibits. Very disappointed, complete waste of time.
