  • I have visited it already twice. Visit 100% recommended to spend an afternoon or morning enjoying a different Aquarium. A layout and interesting variety of aquatic animals.

  • Lovely aquarium for the variety of fish and the shark tunnel. I was very concerned seeing the 'otter' and 'penguin' displays. Each display only had one animal. It was pretty sad to see one penguin sitting huddled in the corner, considering they're used to living in a group.
  • Good way to kill some time on a rainy day. It felt a little it dark and dingy but to be fair there was plenty to see and all the info is in English too. You won't be there all day but a couple of hours should do it. €15 is an OK price.
  • A little expensive for what it is, well laid out however. Some concerns about the size of the Otter 'display' seemed very small for such an active creature.
  • Small but cheaper than most aquariums so worth a visit. Good variety of marine life.
  • Best. Aquarium. Ever. I would literally travel to Asturias again just for this aquarium. so interactive, it blew me away.
