Pleasantly surprised. This is a fairly decent aquarium. I'd put it a notch below Birch Aquarium in San Diego. Where Birch has a lot more information and education, Cret has a few more species. These include sea turtles, octopus and some unique fish as well. Good educational fun.
It was very interesting, and you could see a lot of different species well displayed, BUT, some fishes had good quality of space to swim etc some other fishes were really uncomfortable in really small spaces, also please GUYS.. do not use FLASH in an aquarium, stuff should place notices to protect little fishes from flash , and tourists that can not respect those species..
Very nice place, your kids will love it, but if I could choose, I would come without them :) There is much to discover if you have time. Local buffet offers good coffee and fresh food - dont expect typical fast food, it is much better. One star down to missing gift shop (September 2017).
It's quite interesting if you have never visited a big aquarium before because it's rather small. It is well laid out and the tanks allow great visibility. We enjoyed the ice cream in the restaurant next to the Aquarium and then we walked to the beach which is like some meters away.
Nice aquarium with a lot of different fishes, octopuses, turtles, crabs, etc. I especially liked the little squids which change their colour depending on the surface (never saw this with my eyes). The kids (6 and 3 years old) enjoyed this place a lot.
