Kids enjoyed it

Good variety of sealife and a hands on pool. One of the better aquariums we visited in south America and close to Tamar turtle project so can see both in a day

Small but nice aquarium. The highlights are the interactive feeding at 5pm (for the penguins) and the possibility to touch sea urchins, starfish, skate fish.

If you come to Ubatuba you must visit this place! It's amazing and the money you spent to enter is so worthy! A lot of fishes and big aquariums. There you can approach to marine life. Great to children and adults!

Great place to visit in a cloudy/rainy day. Many species of fish and other sea creatures. The aquarium is very clean and at the end you can touch some of the species in a tank.

The aquarium is really nice, not too big, it has a room for young kids to play and in the back there are some outdoor games. My kids loved it.
