Tour Turkey's first public aquarium at Istanbul Sea Life Aquarium, one of the largest institutions of its kind in Europe and a center for marine observation and conservation. Get a close look at underwater creatures and their environments in the ocean tunnel, where the tank surrounds you and fish swim overhead. Don't miss the largest collection of sharks in Europe; try to identify species like sand, tiger, grey reef, bonnethead, zebra, and bowmouth. End the experience at the interactive pool, where you can touch tame sea creatures like starfish. Try to plan your visit with a shark dive to see staff interact with the animals. Using our custom trip planner, Istanbul attractions like Istanbul Sea Life Aquarium can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Sea life experience with such a close distance was awesome. I had to hurry as I went there at the last moment before closing. I wish I could have some more time to be there
  • Great experience. Our ticket had 50%off and it was worth it. It's the 5th biggest aquarium of the world. They have white sharks too and a big tunnel.
  • Totally amazing experience. Me and my wife payed 96TL for this, but in my opinion we got more than we paid. I thought that the akvarum will be small but I wasn't right, the akvarum is so so huge, and you will be shocked by the number of kinds you will see!
  • It's the best aquarium I have ever seen. Has lots of kind in it.
  • Wonderful pluce to have fun with your family
