I went in today as had some time to kill. For the price of 13.50 euros I thought it was rather overpriced for a small sealife centre. It was ok, nothing mind blowingly amazing. Some good sea creatures but I did it all in under...More

We went there to explor the sealife of Portugal. We explored it in one hour with raja feeding. The premises and pools were decent, decorated with enterntainment and multimedial screens. I expected something bigger for that price (not for visitors but for animals). I would...More

Nice to visit, they try to make it very interactive. For example there was a staff member explaining what was in the aquariums and let us touch and hold a sea urchin which was a nice experience. Overall worth a visit.
