Go on a tour that takes you from the Black Sea to the Pacific Ocean at Istanbul Akvaryum, where you can see over 1,500 marine species, ranging from sea turtles and caimans to rays, piranhas, and blowfish. The recreated habitats simulate the animals' natural environment. If you have a diving certificate, consider joining a dive with the sharks. In addition to animal exhibits, the aquarium features a gift shop, a selection of cafeterias, and a restaurant, plus other attractions, such as a 5-D cinema. Although outside the city center, the aquarium is easily accessible by bus or metro. There is also a large parking lot for visitors arriving by car.

  • Login to $60. If you go as a family (mom + dad + children) you can enter package £ 170. I'd say all the sea creatures. Sparkling. It takes about 2 hours.

  • Nice place, had an issue when I stepped in, one of the staff told us not to go in unless they take a picture, I found that unacceptable, I will volunteer if I want to pose and wait for a picture, so I decided to refuse that, and the staff member told me it's a requirement, still I found that not my free decision, so I wanted a refund, only then they allowed me to pass. Yet inside we had a great time and saw wonderful creatures
  • Very appealing and variable packages costs according to different areas you visit and at you budget. The only disadvantage is that it is really far from taksim but they provide free shuttle rides from the taksim square and the experience us worth ti cut such distance
  • Vatozlar efsane
  • Helikopter simülasyonu tam bir hayalkırıklığı, bilgisayar oyununun dev ekranda oynanmasına ilaveten biraz sarsıntı var sadece... Aynalı labirent fiyasko, geçmemiz bir dakika sürmemiştir, hiç eğlenceli bir şey yok.... Akvaryum için beklentim çok yüksekti heralde, ben yetersiz buldum... Verilen paraya kesinlikle değmez...
  • Great place. Informative. Joyful. Excellent for kids
