  • Visited the Observatory 03.01.2018 (although there were already there in January 2016). BUT! It is a place where you can come back many times. The Observatory tower itself is not very much, and is located on the street is very cool. Very clean, huge turtles are fascinating, very large unrealistically bright fish, aquariums in the pavilions, three hours passed like an instant. If this part of the Hotel Eilat (we lived in Izrotele Yam SUF in 2016 г.) you can go there as the park along the shore. Recommend to everyone, children and adults! OOchen positive place!

  • 109 shekels. The price includes entry to all zones and visit the underwater observatory, where you really get the pleasure of seeing. A bunch of raznovidnyh fish, very beautiful, stunning underwater world. That is not small, it is important that it is the natural habitat of fish Wednesday. Coral around the Observatory. Well no doubt very beautiful views open up while climbing the Tower of the Observatory, where you can see binoculars review free city in Jordan. Well first we visited all zones-shark feeding, opening the shells, where are the pearls. Still on emotions from visiting the Observatory. Recommend

  • This aquarium can't be compared with the ones in the States. It isn't that big, but the atmosphere is nice. The views from the observatory, both underwater and on top of it are great. The shark tank i...  more »

  • Really excellent. There are multiple "stations" to this aquarium. You can stay for many hours without getting bored. Fun for all ages. The underwater observatory is a particularly cool aspect, where you can view fish and coral in their natural habitat. The observatory also has a great café atop the water, with some of the best prices in Eilat.
  • Great place. One of the best attractions that the city of Eilat has to offer. Many things to do and to see. Perfect for families with children. Different types of aquariums with many different types of sea life. The newer section of the observatory complex includes 4D cinema and a giant sharks aquarium where you can see sharks being fed by divers. You can also take a tour on one of their transparent boats. Nevertheless, the high light is off course the under water observatory. Amazing. It is Not cheap but Organized, beautiful and interesting. Free parking. Highly recommended.
  • I loved this place so much! The underwater area where you can see the fish in the Red Sea in their natural environment was TOO COOL! Best aquarium I've ever been to.
  • Nice experience. We visited in the weekend in December. In the winter, the crowds are much smaller than in the summer. Staff is nice and friendly. Fish are plenty. The aquariums are pleasant, but we avoided all the feeding times because it got so crowded you couldn't see the fish. The underwater observatory is the highlight, and provided a lovely glance into the real ocean.
  • I was skeptical at first, but had to reconsider. Lots and lots of sea life forms to be seen here and nowhere else. "Rare fish aquarium" and "Underwater observatory" are absolute treats. The coral reefs, while still recovering, are a great sight nonetheless. Whole place is clean and well maintained. Admission price is 100 ILS per adult (just skip the option with the movie). Visited the place in January so can't say much about the crowds - I saw almost none. Photos don't do the justice to the sights.
