The aquarium is a must to visit if you are interested in diving and see life. It takes about an hour or hour and half. Just follow the arrows. Every part is interesting but the best part is the tunnel with sharks and different fish kinds are wondering at your side and above you. The ticket is 13 euros. Very... More

Fun place to visit for all ages. You start with history and work your way to actual fish tanks. Huge middle tank with rays, sharks, turtles, eels, amongst other fish. There is a tunnel where they swim above and below you. Definitely a good place to visit

Great aquarium on bottom floor but upper floors have very interesting historical and geological histories of area and of the local whaling and fishing industry. Fossils, scale models of ships, and lots more. Our daughter spent hours trying to touch the fish in the "petting zoo" area and especially loved watching the sting rays.

Great way to spend several hours in San Sebastian (especially if you need to escape the weather). There's not much I can say about the aquarium that isn't already on the internet except that we personally really enjoyed it. The underwater tunnel is fantastic and they have good/interesting information on all the exhibits - including in english, which is quite... More

The aquarium includes historical ship models and history of the area as well as sea creatures from the area. The long walkway with fish over your head and around you is well worh the visit.
