Don't miss the largest collection of sharks in Europe; try to identify species like sand, tiger, grey reef, bonnethead, zebra, and bowmouth.

  • There live a satisfying as decoration and environment. However, information and descriptions are very incomplete. Some sections have just creatures of the sea and there is no information about it. The only living thing in many places there are information about the region, there is no information to worry about live. Where there is no digital screen information is only written in Turkish. Çerçide whatever is written in English and Turkish must be in writing. I want to receive information about feeding time; the entry ticket counter and inside I got different information. According to the information booth when I walked in, it was supposed to be feeding time, but the officials said that the hours are not changed during that period. Fortunately we're feeding the stingrays. The tunnel is very beautiful.
