The shark observatory is very nice as you walk inside a glass tunnel while the fish swim free. The underwater observation area is a clever idea as you go into the sea to watch the sea life in nature. Don't miss the fantastic rare fish...More

If you're not into snorkeling or diving, or you just want your little kids to join in on the fun, then this place is your best bet for observing some of the amazing fish living in the red sea.

We go every time we come to Eilat. Great place, not too big, a lot of selection. Very knowledgeable staff. Sharks aquarium is excellent. So is the oceanarium (extra charge).

It was a magical visit, we enjoyed the view of the various fishes of eilat, the children was hypnotized to the glasses. The new section of the sharks was very beautiful and clean and organized. A wonderful day activity, or a few hours.
