Hold your breath and dive into the fantastic underworld of the sea to discover the most incredible and curious animals. There is so much to see! From the amazing vantage of a walkthrough underwater tunnel it is easy to imagine it is you, rather then the fish, that are on display. Housing more than 30 spectacular displays and over 5,600 creatures it takes visitors on a journey from river and coastline to the ocean depth.Our amazing creatures are waiting to welcome you at Sea Life Porto.

Sea Life is always a fun place to spend some time as family. Young kids love to see the fishes and the sharks. The water tunnel is so cool and they've added a kids playground outside. In sunny time, kids will love it. Once in a while they have staff with customs for more interactive plays. When I've been there... More

My kids loved this place. They are 10 and 13 and found the fish so entertaining. The staff were great - really helpful. Not very crowded either. Worth a visit definitely.

I've been to many of the world's great aquariums and it would be unfair to compare Sea Life Porto with those. I didn't expect too much and it was my husband's choice to go there - I didn't want to put him off. To get there we took the 500 bus from opposite Sao Bento station - you can pay... More

We have a 3 year old and we enjoyed our visit to Sea Life. We went in the morning on a workday and we were almost only visitors which was really good - we could spend as much time as wanted at the aquariums with no rush or pressure. All descriptions are available in English.

Good aquarium, nice display, friendly staff... But the whole thing is quite limited... The visit can be done under 30 minutes (If you take your time), so 13€ for that is a bit too much, even though my kids loved the whole thing. They even tried the hurricane machine at the end! The gift shop and cafeteria are quite expensive... More

If you are tired of the usual "touristy" sights in Porto or faced with bad weather you should give this place a try - we did and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Loads of fascinating fish and crustaceans to see - photographing them is not so easy. We really liked the ray feeding session despite being many decades older than our fellow... More

This aquarium is very popular place to visit in Porto mainly for school students and Parents with children. The entrance is not so cheap but worth to see the species from the distant seas and oceans in the World.
