  • Very bad living conditions for the animals. Animals are in stress, not a happy admosohere. My children also did not like it, waist of money en time.

  • Wonderful place to see the sea life from the tropics fishes to sharks and eels and what not. Definitely great to bring the family to see.

  • 2022.07.12 Been visiting it for many years. Over the years, not really satisfied with upgrades. Same food, outdoor Converted to restaurant so you can relax outdoor anymore as you got to pay for it. Children area being charged extra 23 riyals on top of entrance fee which is 65 riyals for anyone above 2 years. No family promotions etc. Guys really need to work and increase value for money for customers.
  • Buying tickets from Cobone is recommended to save. Nice collection of fish and aqua species. Very informative and exciting for kids to learn and experience. The entire experience last about 45-60 mins. Having been to many aquariums around the world, I feel the value could have been better. They should charge 30% less than the current ticket prices. One should be able to spend at least two hours here. With that regard felt it was a bit underwhelming of an experience. The fish in each aquarium on display need to be named and labeled properly as most of them had just the general categories instead of specific names. Can definitely improve.
