I didn't visit here intentionally, it was part of a tour that I didn't know about. The tanks seem far too small for the Sharks and turtles being kept here. Sad to see such lovely creatures living in such conditions. We left and waited for...More

Too much money for nothing! 20 reais p.p. Is way overdone for all the common seafish. Which they show in tomachturning basins (the glass is rounded, so you get a weird sensation in your head and sromach) you spent less than one hour to make...More

Although it does not compare to aquariums in the USA, this small aquarium is a fun stop for kids. It has sharks you can touch, sting rays you can touch, 3 penguins and some cool selection of fish.

not the best but very well organised and cozy place to visit, they permit you to take pictures and enjoy it freely or with a guide who is already included into price

Nothing fancy, but you can see some interesting attractions, like the large pirarucu fishes tank. You you are going to the North, may stop by, but it is not worth a visit for itself.

Modest but enchanting and well kept aquarium, with a very good representation of local marine fauna. There are kind and competent guides that attend you and explain everything you wonder about (you may give them a tip afterwards). You can touch a shark and have...More

Good place to go if you´re travelling with kids. But it´s sad to see so many sharks inside such a small aquarium! And pay attention to the size of the sea horses cubs!
