Very nice!

This little place will tell you the history of San Sebastian, and show you some of its native ocean life! A really cool way to see what's outside, but inside.

We really enjoyed this attraction because it starts with local fishing and marine history and leads to the aquarium. Because of this it is better than many aquariums we have been to. Great tanks and marine animals

reasonably priced, "boutiquey" and just great for kids of all ages. It can get crowded with larger groups in house.

It's like a lot of other aquariums except that it has a really nice view of the ocean from there and it has a lot of wooden boat models. And of course, there are many fish tanks including one that has a tunnel......pretty cool.

A small aquarium but nicely done. History of the area towards the ocean. Large variety of fish. Also, nice saltwater aquariums. Can be seen in a few hours. Excellent restaurants in area. Also, a nice walk around the mountain.

Perhaps because it's independent it charges so much. Nothing special here to see... if you go to Donostia and you don't go to the Aquarium you'll still... More

The facility starts with the history of how the port developed, like a little history museum. You will see various kind of fish. We've got a little discount by telling the hotel that we are visiting the aquarium. The hotel gave us a stamped brochure which you need to give it at the ticket counter. Nice for small children, they... More
