  • Pleasant but rather old fashioned place. It is nice to walk outside in between activities. The shark pool is the only really "must see" here. It is very family friendly but don't expect too much.
  • Nice to visit with kids. Best part was to sea from below the sea level and shark area. Cafeteria food was poor. It's nice rhat you can go there next day with same ticket. Just need the photo taken close to the entrance.
  • Amazing place!!! The staff is very kind and very experienced. We learned a lot of incredible things and we saw a lot of fishes never seen before! You can come back and visit 3 times with the same ticket, really suggested if you want to learn about coral reef and the red sea fishes!
  • The observatory was wonderful. Got to see the sea creatures in their natural habitat. The observatory also gave the option to come back a 2nd day with small kids very helpful especially when one wants to leave and you're not done exploring the park...
  • Very enjoyable afternoon for our family of 4 - 2 adults and 2 12 year olds. The kids loved that they could watch the fish living in the wild! Only thing I wish I had known in advance was that the majority of the demonstrations and lectures are between 10 and 2 - and mostly don't repeat. So even though it's a half day (4-5 hour) activity, coming at noon meant we missed a number of presentations that our group would have liked to attend.
