  • I went first thing in morning. Long line at the time came out. Main exhibitions, including the ship in the first half. In the middle is the Aquarium. It was quite spectacular. Fish swim along the way in a strange move, enjoyed for a while. I was feeling like a has been observed in the big aquarium we have the fish.

  • Enjoy children and elders. But mainly children. The entrance is a little expensive, but I understand that that is expensive. The first part is type Museum in which the children practically want to exit since want to see fish. The beautiful part of the fish. All kinds of fish. We also were a Tuesday that some divers, dan, to 12 eat sharks. This takes place Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 12. In the central part of the visit. Interestingly, although the sharks the day we were satisfied because they did nothing to eat. But it was worth it to see other animals to eat.

  • After a subdued start, you are more than rewarded then the actual Aquarium; Stingrays, sharks and extraordinary sea creatures show up behind the large Windows in the underwater world of San Sebastian. A «must», if the weather seems not quite so gorgeous.
