The recreated habitats simulate the animals' natural environment. If you have a diving certificate, consider joining a dive with the sharks.

  • It was perfect and beautiful , worth to go if you have a visit to Istanbul for sure you mist visit this place . We went as a family group and it had a discount for families with child . 
  • it's great place to spend the last hours before you head to the airport if you're coming by metrobus take a taxi from Florya station
  • I liked it. It was the first aquarium I visited and I quite liked the variety of fish and the accompanying explanations. However I feel it was a bit pricey for 2 people. Much better options for bigger groups.
  • Nice but not impressive
  • An aquarium full or variety with many fish species as well as turtles and sharks though a little unimaginative in its layout. Perfect to visit as very close to the Atakoy Airport on the European side, and there are good restaurants and a shopping mall closeby - so you can really fill in your time
  • A good place to visit, many sea fishes an also Amazone ones. very nice no crowded but no one speaks english at the reception ???
