I would not go here again. It was ok for our first trip to this area. It was fun for the kids, however, nothing much more special than what we have seen previously. If it had been swimming weather, we would have skipped this and snorkeled, on our own, to see the coral and fish.

I have been to aquariums all over the USA, and this was among the best. We went at 3:30 in the afternoon and had the place to ourselves. The tanks were clean and full of amazing sea life, and the underwater observatory has to be seen! Great place, don't miss it!!

We spent a few hours at the Marine Park yesterday. The highlight is clearly the underwater observatory that looks out upon the reef. The Oceanarium ride was also fun.

Beautifullly laid out exhibits of sea life The fish were beautiful and the turtles were enormous You were right on the Red Sea The tower is built from the bottom of the sea and you are able to see the sea creatures in their natural habitat

The place is really something else! So much to see and explore. The underwater Observatorium is breathtaking, as well as their brand new shark pool

We knew very well this is the best attraction in Eilat and found ourselves enjoying a magic world: the Red sea world. The place has several different attractions suitable for adults and children as well especially the feeding of the fishes and marine animals. I highly recommend the place.
