This attraction is super for kids of all ages. My wife and I loved visiting the observatory. We watches from "under the water" as the fish were fed. The sharks and other sea creatures are so close to you that you can almost touch them. (We are separated of course by glass.) You can see many kids of fish from... More

Absolutely amazing. Must see in Eilat. I have a marine aquarium home and was absolutely thrilled to see the REAL coral reef with my own eyes. Water was a bit rough so we were decided not to go on the boat, which was z bit disappointing. Nice shark aquarium, shark feeding guide was very good and informative. A bit too... More

I went on a Saturday and the place was filled of screaming kids. It's a pretty small place so at times we had to wait behind families to see the aquariums. But this did not take away from the very cool fish, sharks, and view atop the observatory.

Been there several times in the past 10 years. An interesting place to visit and see the wild life in the red sea without getting wet. There are some animals that you will probably not meet while swimming in the water (sharks for example). Kids absolutely love this place because its like an underwater zoo, pretty cool for adults as... More

I thought it was a bit dirty, but was not all that bad. It was a bit odd to see things like that, but I liked it.

This is the first time we visited the observatory since it was refurbished with expanded services. It is truly of an international standard with enough to keep you and children busy for a minimum of three hours. My wife and I totally enjoyed ourselves. We even stayed to watch the various feedings of various species of fish and amphibians every... More

Well organized. Unfortunately some construction work going on. Plan your visit so that you avoid Friday-Sunday when it is very crowded.

A group booked a visit. The reservations manager was just trying to see how to squeeze more money out of them. Seems like they are just trying to rip you of.
