A place that can be visited only once. Very high cost of entry for what the place has to offer. Jewelry and souvenirs that are sold in the complex also have a very high prices. Not such a lot kinds of interesting fishes and corals.

This place is like the reverse of a fish tank. You are trapped in an air tank while the fish swim freely outside. You will see all kind of colorful fish swimming through the windows. It is just am amazing view

Worth a visit in order to get a a very good idea about the underwater life in the red sea. The shark aquarium is beautiful. If you have a picture taken at the entrance you can come back the next day for a second entrance.

The fish were very pretty and interesting. I’m only giving it 3 stars because went snorkeling and saw most of the same fish “face to face”. If you don’t plan on snorkeling it’s worth going.

We were looking forward to snorkeling, but out brief time in Eilat was cool and rainy with occasional thundershowers, so no snorkeling. This was a good second choice.

Don't be put off by its somewhat outdated first impression, the Underwater Observatory holds real gems for those wanting to marvel at the Red Sea underwater world, but not quite up to a drive or snorkel ... as we were. The aquaria are beautiful and...More
