  • This is an amazing place. Beautifully designed and the environment looks like it is ideal for all of the animals and fish. My personal favourites (as ever) were the penguins and it was wonderful to be able to see them so clearly both above and below water. The otter did almost steal the show, and we were thankful that the display holding the poisonous frogs proved to be childproof! The main aquarium with its two level 360° views was the main event however and we felt privileged to be able to see so many species of fish so clearly.
  • Fantastic aquarium, one of the best I have visited anywhere in the world. Lots of fish, colourful and healthy, and tanks are clean and well cared for. Like all Portuguese people, Staff is super friendly and professional, we all speak more than one language. I highly recommend the gift shop, amazing T-shirts. If you can give a contribution to help care for the aquarium vs animals please do so ! The tickets is only €19 for adults but is well below price in comparison to smaller and less diverse aquarium I visited so is quite cost accessible. You have unique experiences packages. I love it and highly recommend the visit.
