  • Well looked after aquarium. I liked that it is not too big and it doesn't take too long to walk through it maybe a bit more than an hour. Has quite a variety of fish here, some I have never seen or heard of before. Has a lot of nice interactive sections for kids. Has a dolphin sho2 in the afternoons too. Has a beautiful view over the Red sea and a restaurant on the premises.
  • Amazing! It's so magical and great. Also there's restrooms and a place where you can eat food. Also there's a little coffee shop where u can order stuff and sit on tables looking out to the sea. And also some shops where you can buy merch. Tickets for the aquarium costs 52 riyals. Tickets for the dolphins/seals show is also 52 riyals. combined is 104
  • Loved it... very clean and well maintained. Beautiful marine species from around the world.. the seal and dolphin shows are very enjoyable for adults and children alike ... a very neat and well kept place overall... must see if you are in or around Jeddah...
  • Had a wonderful time at Fakieh Aquarium. Kids enjoyed a lot. The dolphin show was absolutely amazing. It was a great fun time. The seal fish show also excellent. The aquarium was also good. Kids enjoyed watching different fishes and sea creatures. There were sharks, octopus, jelly fish besides other fishes.
  • Great experience!! All aquarium tanks are perfectly cleaned and well maintained, you won't even notice there's a thick fiber glass. Also to mention the exotic species they have. Not to mention the jelly fishes at the end!! And yeah they do have an awsome merchandise. The dolphin show is marvelous!!
