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.

We ended up going to the aquarium because of rain. This is a very small aquarium. My feeling is that the tanks are too small for the animals and are overcrowded. With the emphasis given to being environmentally responsible, it is my opinion that they need to improve conditions for their animals. The specimens they have are interesting. It takes... More

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.

This aquarium is a must-to-go in the city. It has a complete set of animals including moray eels, penguins, rays, sharks, stonefish, and turtles.

Visiting the aquarium was a great experience with my kids... They were amazed seeing such different animals that they mostly only get to see on the TV or books... Right before you come into the property people can see some alligators and turtles through the glass, even those who are walking on the street can have a small taste on... More

It´s a good place to visit if there is nothing else to do, for a rainy day, or kids to get entertained. The good side is, they have free transportation from/to the port. I really expected something more sophisticated due to the propaganda! The biologists try to keep up their job, government ought to give more support and invest more... More

I never thought that I could find at Ubatuba an aquarium with the standards of international aquariums such as the one in Monterrey, California! This place rocks! You can see piranas, Amazonian species, marine species of all sort, even sharks, aligators, penguins and other wonderful animals - and they seem happy there!

Very small aquarium! But I give my compliments for their effort to make it a nice place! Everyone knows how hard is to get any help in Brasil to maintain places like this, and they are really doing a great job! My son went crazy when he saw the sharks!!!

Thank GiLuca
