A tiny place, not so well-maintained, located on the grounds of Marina Bander Raudha. You'll see a more diverse marine life go snorkeling instead !!

By European standards this centre is rather basic but it is worth a visit. The staff were very friendly and it shows that Oman is moving forward in this field. Well done.

Dolphin watching was something I had never done before and thus I was looking forward to it eagerly. Whales and dolphins inhabit Oman’s long and varied coastline. Gladly, one does not need to go far, dolphins can be spotted in the azure waters of Muscat...More

The place was closed for renovation. There wasn't any live specimens seen. They ought to have a proper aquatic museum... Its about time!

It was OK as this aquarium has such beauty idyl creatures but such small tanks. I have heard PDO is going to build a bigger better one.
