Place is crawling with screaming kids, but the beauty of sealife simply overwhems it all. Sharks are adorable. Ocenarium movie is quite shallow.

Don't miss watching the octopus being fed (Monday). Have your picture taken (free) and use it for free entrance two more days

I think it's a "must see" place in Eilat, a lot of aquariums with different colourful fishes and corals. Very interesting place for kids and adults as well.

great explanations, shows, feeding - a great place to spend a great time! not so cheap, but worth the money (ask for a free 3 days pass which alows you to pay once and enter on 3 days!)
