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.

  • Definitely the best aquarium I've been to. The collection of fish is astounding and the cleanliness and good management of the establishment makes it worth the visit 
  • Go by tram and metro, the aquarium is located in a shopping mall, outside of the tunel common everywhere for the sharks, made all empty and decoration very Nemo, disappointed overall.
