The underwater observatory allows you to see the fish and corals of the reef without diving. The other attractions which include the rare fish area., ,the turtle pool, the shark hall and the movie with the moving seats make this a wonderful way to spend a day. There is also a submarine ride if you are interested. The fish are... More

the park is well maintained and organized. everything is clear and there are activities at certain hours as fish feeding by the aqualungist underwater, opening the oysters looking for pearls, good interactive spots for getting more information on e.g. anatomy of sharks, where the information is very concise and well presented both for adults and school children.

Approximately 14 minute drive from Eilat towards the Egyptian border. Cost of entry to the park and the oceanarium was 109nis. Variety of fish, sharks, turtles at the various locations throughout the park. Can easily spend 2 hours seeing everything. Weather was great this time of year 23 degrees Celsius.

You can spent there all day and still will have sth to do. We had been with 2 years son and he spent great time, using lots of attractions and not been bored (it is really hard to find such places for toddlers;) You can plan a break in the cafe in the observatory - its not expensive and views...

We got tickets from our hotel (Royal Garden), and they came and picked us up from our hotel, the underwater observatory is simply gorgeous, plus we went on the coral 2000, which is a boat where you can go below deck and see the magnificent coral and fish, and the shark exhibit is great too! Would definitely recommend for people... More

As above - really enjoyed our visit but on the pricy side. However we were told that we could visit with our original ticket the next day should we like.
