Snorkeling through Israel's coral reefs in Southernmost Israel was a very unique experience. The facility was well equipped with snorkeling gear and good bathrooms. It is a very short snorkeling trip and it allows you to see some interesting fish. This is an activity I...More

Great for kids! There is a new shark section which really reminds me of other sea museum around the world. The movie there is nice, but not mandatory. There is feeding almost every half an hour with explanations. It is usually very crowded. Try to...More

Expensive but interesting and a fair amount to see, especially if you catch one of the events like the shark feeding. I would do this before going to Coral Beach, since you see more fish at the reefs at Coral Beach.

Kids will love. For adults, it's interesting. Before you go, check in internet the time they feed the animals, so you can follow a special performance. The observatory was a little frustrating for me, but I loved the shark tank.

I probably had too high expectations since this place ranks so high on Trip Advisor. The underwater observatory is a let down, you almost see nothing but a few small fish hanging around the coral. The other exhibits are a bit better but it is...More

We decided to take the bus but unfortunately had to wait for so long in the heat since the times weren't really correct. I would recommend to check bus times with some good traveling app. Otherwise just take a taxi. Should... More

Sometimes hotels offer a deal for bundling all the activities of the park together. Otherwise, this is a premium attraction and I wasn't able to find any deals on it.
