  • We were not expecting much and were very surprised! We ran only once briefly through, it was quite nice but still not as impressive. Just before the exit, we were asked whether we want not a guide. It was a good decision to accept the offer! Our guide had enormously vel knowledge about the various sea creatures. He tell us amazing facts to any single Aquarium. The guide was super amazing! The highlight was when we were in the big reptiles, to touch some also. George, the stroke addict iguana is left unforgettable memories! George loves it visibly by visitors to be petted (except tail, he doesn't like that). As soon as one touches his head he closes his eyes and stretching direction head fingers touching him. You told us that he if he is not touched for a a few days, becomes very agitated and clearly calls for the pampering. It is a very special experience to handle a giant snake and other cold-blooded animals. Of course you have but not too close to get them if you don't want it. For us, the €6 have at least more than worth. We recommend Aquarium very Corfu - but only with a guide!

  • Recently was doing tour of island, went to a cafe and while checking for WiFi, noticed there was an aquarium. Asked the restaurateur where it was and off I trotted with my child. Was not disappointed ...  more »
  • visited on a really rainy day but was very enjoyable...worth a visit, the place itself looked a little run down but the people were friendly enough

  • Although this aquarium is small, the staff who are employed there are enthusiastic and extremely knowledgeable. My wife and I were guided around the premises by two extremely helpful guides who talked about the sea life and reptiles with exceptional knowledge and allowed us to hold and touch some of the snakes and reptiles in the vivarium. If you're in the area of the monastery I definitely recommend a visit.
  • Not a very big aquarium but still fun. The staff was really cool. You can pet the iguana :)
  • It was ok, don't expect much but you get to pet an iguana and a baby pithon.
  • Very polite and communicative staff. Small aquarium, but with a number of interesting fish and reptiles. Possible to hold and pet some of the snakes and lizards.
  • Waste of money: small aquariums under a hot plastic canvas
