Lanzarote Aquarium, Costa Teguise

2.7
#3 of 6 in Parks in Costa Teguise
Lanzarote Aquarium, the biggest aquarium in the Canary Islands, contains 33 tanks and hundreds of species. Look for species local to the islands, like the tiger fish. Check out the sharks from the underwater tunnel, although the huge ray may steal the show. Stroke the starfish and sea cucumbers. After seeing their display of garbage collected from the beaches of Lanzarote, you be inclined to pick up any trash you find on the sand. If you’re interested in diving with sharks, contact them about the advanced diving course in their tanks.

  • It does not look much from the outside, so a nice surprise when you go in, the top part is a little shop, the aquarium is downstairs. A good selection of fish, freshwater, and saltwater, well worth a ...  more »
  • Visited on a cloudy day as our hotel was only 5 mins away. Compared to UK sealife centres yes it's small however you do get to see some bigger more rare fish than you would normally. In particular the...  more »
  • Good activity to pass the time and if you don't have nothing better to do. The €14 input are not justified at all for what is the establishment itself. However, if some of that money is earmarked for the conservation of the environment, you can have a pass.

  • Family friendly and with a good value gift shop. Decent menagerie with some rescue cases which at least in part justifies (IMO) the aquarium's existence. A positive experience and rare opportunity to see some extraordinary creatures.
  • There is a lot of negative feedback and reviews for the aquarium but I personally think these are unjustified. The aquarium is small and you could pass through it in 15 minutes if your not really interested in fish. However if you like aquariums you will appreciate the costs of running the place. There is a very good selection of fish and other marine life. The aquarium rescue and home animals that have been attacked too. They currently have 2 turtles that have lost limbs to sharks. They have some absolutely stunning fish and there is a shark feeding show at 12.30 each day. The stingrays are amazing and bigger than any others I have seen. Information about the different creatures is limited. It would be nice to see more information displayed. Tickets.... 7 people... 3 x Adults & 4 x children We purchased a family ticket for 2 adults and 2 children. €42 1 Senior ticket €11 1 child ticket €9 And lady gave us a free child ticket. Total cost.... €62 Absolute bargain compared to the UK aquariums we have visited. Notes.... Your free to take photos (no flash please) The staff are very friendly and helpful There's no pressure to buy anything from the gift shop. Gift shop has a fairly good selection of stuff. Some items were a bargain others were pricey. There is no cafe inside the aquarium but there's plenty choice right outside. Unsuitable for wheelchair users and pushchair owners as there is 2 sets of stairs to climb. Would I visit again.... Yes
  • Yes it's small. I've been to the oldest, tallest, widest and "biggest" aquariums in the world. This isn't a patch on them. However there's not a lot to do on the Island but this is ok. About 30 minutes does it but there is good variety in it for it's size.
  • Yes it may be small but it's still a lovely place, small shark tunnel. Touch pools dotted around. Huge stingray is the star of the show!
  • As another reviewer said this is worth a visit if you are in the locality. Short and sweet. Huge sting ray made it for us.
