“Greatest aquarium in Europe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

This aquarium is just amazing!!! The 3rd biggest in the world !!! A very long glass tunnel with an amazing view of the sharks, lots of tropical aquariums, a lot of space and a day to visit all the Oceanografic. A must see in Valencia with the Bioparc.

“Beautiful surroundings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

Spacious park. Nice dolphin show. Everything was beautiful and very clean. Lots of animals seems to enjoy their stay. Don't miss the great aquaria where you can walk between sharks, mantra's etc.

“Overpriced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

We chose to go in the evening as it's open until 12 and we felt it would be cooler. All the restuarants inside and most of the gift shops were closed. We'd missed the last dolphin show and the education elements had also finished and yet the price was the same- 29 euros each!

The tanks are smaller than somewhere like Seaworld but seem well looked after. I wouldn't go again.

“Beautiful oceanografic park with a lot to see but poor show”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

Huge park fun for adults and children where you can spend easily four hours minimum, but we were a little bit disappointed by THE dolphin show everyone talk about. It was very simple and not exceptionnal like the rest of this place. So good to visit one time but we won't go there again.

A huge plus for the tunnels inside the park, they are nice and you can see so many things like sharks, moon fish and so on.
