  • Pretty awesome aquarium. Loved the layout of the aquarium and the tanks. Best bit was the jellyfish. Not the biggest aquarium in the world, but well worth a visit
  • Great place to visit with kids. There might be more interesting aquariums with more spectacular variation of animals and fishes, but you recognize the effort and enthusiasm of the team to present the local sealife. And the prices are much better than we experienced in similar places.
  • Very usual place, I visited more impressive Aquariums. The most interesting fishes are two sharks. I'm not impressed.
  • It is a great Crete secret. Clean, very informative and much better than expectations. Finished off the tour with a lovely coffee and bite to eat in pleasant surroundings served by very friendly staff. Well worthwhile.
  • Very big aquarium, worth visiting. Even toddler was impressed. A lot of people even in mornings.
