    It's a wonderfully bustling place with something for everyone, be it the diverse interactive hubs where one can see sharks being fed by a scuba diver, the most exclusive peek at the rarest of fish, th...  more »

    The Park will be interesting for children interested in underwater life. The territory is small, it works but all well thought out and the lack of long transitions between zones does not visit tedious. In the park there is a nice aquarium with sharks and stingrays, a pool with fish, where the surcharge can dive anyone, there are aquariums with the inhabitants of coral reefs and the Amazon. In the two basins are floating huge sea turtles. You can also go down to the lower floors of the underwater observatory and observe the Red Sea in a natural Wednesday. Several times a day can be observed feeding the animals and fish. And of course in the Park has a restaurant and a couple of cafes.

    A great attraction for the family. The shark tank is spectacular. I'll recommend not to take the glass boat. Nothing to see other then the poor dying reef. And for that price it's overcharged attentio...  more »

    Fantastic experience for children and adults alike. Diverse range of exhibits touching upon many aspects of marine life, some interactive. The Oceanarium movie (more an "experience," honestly) is a must - you will not regret adding the additional few dollars for it. The new shark exhibit is magnificent, with a panoramic tunnel going through the aquarium for unobstructed views from the sides and above. Plenty of free parking. Tip: you can usually find discount coupons on the Internet or in the various Eilat tourism pamphlets/coupon books.

    Easy to spend several hours here enjoying fish and sharks. There is an OK restaurant here with reasonable prices. The underwater observatory was wonderful. Recommended, although it is not very cheap. But they are helping preserve our nature!

    We were a bit disappointed by our visit. The corals are mostly dead, with few fish. The inner aquariums were nice, and so was the shark tank. Entrance price is high, and there's additional cost for other place in the same facility. Feels a bit too much...
