  • It's clean, well maintained and they give tons of marine life.... All the staff are nice, well informed and helpful....kids love it 💙💙.... The adjoining Miami beach restaurant is our family's go to place in the weekends.... The food and the view are amazing
  • Amazing place, beautifully managed, really nice staff, average AKA not so high prices and a variety of different animals with a beautiful ocean view! Why the 4 stars then? It's due to the EXTREMELY LONG waiting time for the dolphin show. A part from that, it's another must-visit vacation spot, indeed!
  • Very nice aquarium with a big selection of sea animals, mostly from the Red Sea. Great dolphin show afterwards.
  • Both Aquarium and Dolphin Show are awesome. Dolphin show will cost you 50 SAR and its duration is 30 minutes. But go for the show after sunset to avoid the high temperature.While, Aquarium tour duration is 20-40 minutes and also cost you 50 SAR. You will find aquatic life of different oceans here e.g, Indian Ocean,Atlantic ocean, Red Sea etc. Aquarium Parking has good capacity.
  • Good place to see. Dolphin show of internatioanal standerd available at evening time. Good standerd show worth to see at least once.
