  • HES perfect for visits with our small nature marina in its purest form, with an extensive tour and spacious facilities and a wide variety of marine animals certainly a hunico site of valencia for me a must-see if these are the city

  • Worth a visit, especially if you like aquariums. The oceanografic has several separate marine environments, the famous sharks and outdoor areas. Ride for families and children.

  • This attraction is for children as well as adults enjoy. You can see aquatic species that we are not accustomed to seeing. My favorite: the beluga! We went also to the Dolphinarium to watch the show and it was great. My recommendation is that you don't buy food within the enclosure, since all products go up in price.

  • Just amazing. Must see while in Valencia. Especially dolphins show and the ocean tunnel. One thing that we didn't like is the food in the restaurants in there which was bad and ridiculously expensive. But I guess that's normal for such kind of places. If you can - better bring some food with you. Also - if you buy tickets for Oceanographic and the science museum make sure you will have time to see it all. We couldn't see everything in the museum because we spent most of the time in Oceanographic.
  • There are no words to describe the sheer beauty of this oceanogràf me! one of the finest and best kept that I have ever visited. of course it's always overrun by school groups and tourists, it is always better to visit early in the morning, to see it all because it takes a whole day. have missed the dolphin shows and penguins, which unfortunately increasingly overlap! immediately informed of the times of the shows! some places are fascinating and make you feel a young Jules Verne 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea! @gargio76
  • It's interesting to go and see once. It's pretty big, with lots of fishes and other animals like crocodiles or flamingo, organised by the place where they come from. Also, the dolphins it's a must see. They have a few shows a day, so be sure you get the right hour. There might be a negative part for some of you, and that it's full of kids running and screaming all around the place :).
  • Amazing experience, one of the best part of the City of Arts and Science. Spent almost all day here, so much to see and enjoy. Better bring food from outside, you'll get thirsty and hungry and the availability inside is quite small (and expensive)
  • Aquariums are all right. Service is very bad. First we qued fourty minutes to buy tickets. Then we went for a lunch. Thirty minutes passed we are still in the que for buffet food - only two tills are open out of four, and this is during high season! Absolutely furious! Upd1. Ok, this is officially the worst aquarium visit. We have qued for exactly an hour for buffet. Upd2. We are in another que, now to the aviary. We've been to a number of zoos, aquariums, animal parks. Never experienced waisting so much time in the qued. Avoid Oceanografic it's not worth it.
