Worth a visit. You can do it in a hour without kids or spend the day with kids. Interesting exhibits. Well thought out attraction. Huge glass tanks are spectacular.

There is a lot to see here, make sure you have plenty of time for a visit. Come early, it will be quickly crowded. The best attraction in my view is when you descend under the Red Sea in the observatory and see all the...More

Ok, I think you should skip this attraction. I mean, if you are eager about seeing sharks in a tank and how they are fed by a trained person that's ok. But, in my opinion, 99 shekels it's too much to see a few specimens...More

We visited the marine park. The observatory is built 100 meters into the Red Sea and you can descend into a viewing room giving onto a reef. The fish and corals are fascinating and you don't need to get on a boat to see them....More

We were in Eilat for a couple of days and decided to see this highly recommended attraction. We felt that while it was nice it wasn't anything we haven't seen before and thought perhaps there were other things more worthwhile doing if you have a...More
