  • The aquarium was a wonderful afternoon outing. It is reasonably priced (even with the VAT) and well worth a visit. The exhibits are well maintained and clean, with a variety of marine life. I would ha...  more »
  • I visited the place only once after my wife's insistence. Frankly it was nicer than what I expected, but smaller than I imagined.

  • 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.
  • 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!!
  • مكان رائع للتنزه رغم ارتفاع الاسعار ويرغمونك علي التحرك السريع داخل الممرات المائيه. عرض الدلفين رائع وكذلك عرض سباع البحر ومنطقة المطاعم جيده ومنظر البحر وقت الغروب رائع. very nice place and really wonderful about sea creatures. but they force you to move very fast and the air conditioning not good or may be they make it to force people move out faster. but it's nice place i wished it more bigger and under control of the government. dolphins show is very nice and sea lions.
  • This is my first ever oceanarium excursion and Fakieh aquarium welcomed me well! All the 22 tanks inside are all clean you won't even recognize there's a thick fiber glass between me and the sharks. I like the feel and the design along the trails as it is child-friendly and safe for kids. Warning: walking shorts above the knees is not allowed for guys so make sure to wear pants! :)

Where to stay in Jeddah

A major pilgrimage and commercial site with large numbers of visitors year-round, Jeddah offers a wide range of accommodations, ranging from low-budget to super deluxe.

You can find most major international chain hotels throughout the city. Outside Hajj season, accommodation in Jeddah is generally cheaper than that in Riyadh.
