Oceanografic Valencia Reviews
Fantastic display of marine animals, with the shark tunnel a highlight. You spend a good deal of your visit outdoors, so don’t pick a rainy day more »
A visit to Oceanogràfic Valencia, the largest aquarium complex in Europe, is surprisingly worthwhile. The admission price of more than 30 euros seems a lot at first, but 4 hours later you really come.... more »
Great aquarium filled with loads of marine life. The Buildings were spacious and nicely designed with clean tanks for all the fish to swim freely. I really enjoyed the aquarium mainly because of the variety of fish to look at. There were was also penguins and an aviary full of tropical birds and some common Spanish birds. Food was a bit pricey but was decent for an attraction area. Would go again.
A very good day out if you like nature and the sea. Lots to see. Sea lions are characters. Shark enclosure was a great experience as the fish swim over you in the tunnel. Ours was a winter visit so not overcrowded. Could be busy in summer.
