I went in today as had some time to kill. For the price of 13.50 euros I thought it was rather overpriced for a small sealife centre. It was ok, nothing mind blowingly amazing. Some good sea creatures but I did it all in under...More

Great place for a family visit. Kids love it. The possibility to see and touch some starfish, feed the fishes, is a great experience for them to get in touch with sea life. The small but important attention to the pollution of the sea, is...More

We went there to explor the sealife of Portugal. We explored it in one hour with raja feeding. The premises and pools were decent, decorated with enterntainment and multimedial screens. I expected something bigger for that price (not for visitors but for animals). I would...More

Sea Life is a little out of the way if you’re in Porto city center without transportation, but you can actually get there pretty easily with public transportation — there are buses that stop right in front of it (just put it in Google maps...More

Nice aquarium to visit near the sea, in Matosinhos. Get your tickets online and save a couple is Euros each. The place is quite small so the visit is brief and can get a bit crowded sometimes. At the entrance, a staff member will ask...More

Nice to visit, they try to make it very interactive. For example there was a staff member explaining what was in the aquariums and let us touch and hold a sea urchin which was a nice experience. Overall worth a visit.
