Hold your breath and dive into the fantastic underworld of the sea to discover the most incredible and curious animals. There is so much to see! From the amazing vantage of a walkthrough underwater tunnel it is easy to imagine it is you, rather then the fish, that are on display. Housing more than 30 spectacular displays and over 5,600 creatures it takes visitors on a journey from river and coastline to the ocean depth.Our amazing creatures are waiting to welcome you at Sea Life Porto.

It's quite a small aquarium but well laid out, all the information is displayed in multiple languages and the staff are very enthusiastic and extremely helpful. Our girls particularly enjoyed the sharks, turtle and feeding the rays.
