Very beautiful aquarium shows. We were with two young kids aged 1-2 y/o and they loved the displays, and so did the adults. Aquariums are from small size to quite a big one, with various fish, jellyfish, and even a small shark. Admission fee is 5-10 e. You can spend 1-2 hrs here and have a good time. In place Restaurant was under construction at the time, a small kiosk can be found outside. Arrived by car, plenty of Parking. Enjoy!!
It was totally worth the drive for this magnificent experience ! Our daughter who is almost 4 loved it and got fascinated by all the presented species in the aquarium ! For older visitors, the information available are quite rich and interesting. Definitely recommended if you spend your vacations in Crete ...
