I wrote my review under Acuario! Perhaps two entries should be combined! It was well worth the trip even though so much more would have been gained by the addition of English translations. Th exhibits are excellent - the live jelly fish tank fantastic and...More

Interesting place to visit, well kept. Unfortunately we could not see close by when the Sea Lions were fed due to the weather.

I've been to many aquariums around the world & would put this one in my top 10. Beutifully laid out & very informative.The Nautilus section downstairs is a wonder! I only spotted one mistake - the Peacock Wrasse tank needed more substrate. Definitely visit. 10euros.

It’s a very good place to take kids, it’s small but very well kept, the best places are the shark living room and the fish tanks

Its a nice walk along the seafront if the weather is nice. But I would recommend the bus only a couple of Euros each. Can't remember the route # but it will take you very near.

Really I don't remeber how you can get from the cruise dock to the aquarium. I only remeber they are not far and you can go walking. Yes the Tower of Hercules is the Lighthouse.
