  • Jawdropping to see the sharks swim in front of you in the big aquarium spanning over at least two floors.

  • 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.
  • Super cool spot! Could spend the whole day watching the fish and sharks and everything just swimming around. There is also a cable car nearby and if you buy a combo ticket (for the cable car and aquarium) the cable car is almost free. Gives a nice view and then just head on in to see the marine life! Would recommend taking mushrooms before you go as it is an aquarium 😎
