Took our grandson who is 8 and he really enjoyed the exhibits. The dolphin show was closed down but other than that was really nice and affordable.

I do love this place. Not only for the aquarium itself, but for the restaurant (Blue Ocean) they have as well. A great place to spend a day with the family, friends or just to get a cup of coffee in the early morning by the sea. I am used to visiting it on regular basis and never got disappointed. I love how friendly the staff are. They are sooo welcoming and take care of you as if they have no other customers to take care of. Highly recommended.
Well maintained and planned. Children will find it informative and entertaining. Will need to spend at least 2-3 hours depending on one's attention to detail. Appreciate the efforts to keep the species relevant to Red Sea. Restaurants is good as well. Did not find issues with parking
