  • Probably the best entertainment for children in Eilat. If upstairs Observatory offers wonderful views over the Bay. At the bottom of the Observatory to monitor coral reef. Also a lot of interesting things in the park itself. Interesting for both children and adults.

  • Underwater observatory Park can be reached by bus No. 15 from the "Central station". The fare is not expensive. Buses are air-conditioned. In the return line, bus No. 16. In the Friday-Saturday a separate schedule, note the first half of the day. You can pay by card. Well-groomed territory. A lot of interesting things. Enjoy children and adults. In the calendar of themed presentations: feeding sharks, turtles, video, opening the shells. .. Inside the park there are restaurants, but do not wait for the end of the day, as are closed early. 2:00 flew by unnoticed. Close to the beach, clean (cleaner than the Center), admission free. Umbrellas, deck chairs, chairs for a fee. Prices are moderate. In the hotel you can rent rental mask. Beach, gravel bottom, bathing slippers required. Everyone enjoyed it.

  • Lots of fun!!! Perfect for little kids, older kids and even adults. I went with my class and we had an amazing time. What was truly amazing was seeing the thousands of fish each different than the last. Seeing the sharks there was very cool.
  • 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.
