  • Nice place, a bit too expensive but not at all comparing to other similar parks in EU. The same for the price...  more »
  • It was so much fun seeing all of what the red sea's underwater has to offer! Such a great variety of fish! They also have huge shark aquarium that you could sit and admire for hours! I loved the dark ...  more »
  • If you will not snorkel in Eilat because Red sea is almost always cold, do at least this tour. Highly recommend.  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...
  • God time to all the family. Very nice new underwater aquarium. Very interesting guides in both Hebrew and English-language, fascinating under the water observatory. Good time for a few hours for kids all ages
  • A great fun place to learn about the underwater world. The sharks aquarium is awesome.
