  • It is worthwhile to visit someone who is near! Very oikio environment if you like Turkish/Greek food with sea mask and watch the sea, you see a lot of familiar fish and certainly much larger than those that have grown accustomed to the eye! And the best is the last Aquarium, which has all the actors from the movie mighty Knight's!

  • Great experience for anyone and especially for kids. The sharks were pretty impressive. A bit outside Heraklion, but there is plenty of parking space. It's 200m from the beach and you can combine a dive in the sea with your visit.
  • Very nice! The entrance price is reasonible (9€ only). It's air conditioned, so your visit is pleasant... Many usefull informations about diferent spicies. Infront of aquarium is free parking and a nice bar where the prices are normal. Really good place to spend at least 1:30h
  • I have visited many accuariums in several European cities including Vienna, Zaragoza and Barcelona. Not only it fulfils the same standards but I believe it is much much better, especially with the text in several languages explaining information!
  • It's good aquarium with lot of fishes, sharks, etc. The entrance price (9euro) is higher, but you give money to a good cause.
  • One of the best Aquariums! Must visit! Your Kids will love it.
