Small sea aquarium. Very nice for a short visit or a little longer if you want to sit and observe the fish in front and above you and picture yourself admits the fish under water ;)

I recommend this small well stocked aquarium. Lovely seating area if you'd like to sit back and watch the fish. Great family attraction. It doesn't take long to walk through and can easily be done within an hour if you're rushed.

Small but ok, for a little island is a good stop to see around 50 species and is clear and clean the water. Not bad

Lot's of different fish to see, nice atmosphere and a thrilling experience for my little daughter of nearly five. Inexpencive thing to do in the little town of Porto Moniz.

My wife and I were enthralled by the quality of the design and opportunity to dive with the fishes. Worth a visit

Since it was too cold for the pools, we went here, but it is super small and definitely not worth a visit to Porto Moniz of its own. Price doesn't reflect the quality. It was nice half an hour, but nothing special to remember .

Bit expensive if you consider these are a few small fish tanks and one big one. Still nicely serviced and a half hour of your day well spend.

The aquarium on the sea front at Porto Moniz is well worth a visit if: you are really interested in the fish found in local waters; if you have small children to entertain; or if you need to kill half an hour during a shower. Don't bother if you are with teenagers or if you are looking for spectacle. The... More
