There are many things to do in this park, it's not JUST an observatory. You can go on a boat with a glass bottom, feed marine animals in shallow pools, see sharks in an aquarium, see pearls be extracted from oyster, and take part in other activities.

Great for young kids. It's on small side but definitely things to see here. Observation deck gives you views of Eliat, Egypt, Jordan on a clear day. They feed the fish throughout day and you can experience it.

This is an interesting place, if somewhat overpriced. Although I have been back to Eilat many times over the years, I have only been here the once. It is not the sort of place to make you keep going back. Afterall once you have seen it once it is enough, and there is nothing to go back for. It may... More

Exotic fish, very interesting show, and great submarine-like boat ride. It's better to visit during winter.

cute visit, nothing too extraordinary- expensive, not recommended on very hot days it can be exhausting... if you have some free time great to go see beautiful fish... strongly recommemded to visit during mid week and not friday-saturday since it gets too crowded

So much to do and see. Was a fun few hours out. The new shark attraction was amazing and so great to see. A bit pricey, but worth it since there is so much to do in the one place. Great place to take the kids.

We snorkeled the day before at the Nature Reserve so this gave us an opportunity to see more tropical fish and to see sharks, skates and turtles, which were not visible swimming at the reef. Fairly expensive and commercial, we still enjoyed our visit. Looked great for kids; we also loved the shark tank feeding. The Coral and tropical fish... More

Took my toddler to visit and thought it was totally worth it. She didn't understand much but I throughly enjoyed it. It was a first time experience to see under the ocean so that enhanced the experience.
