Beautiful window on coral reefs and impressive variety of fishes. Had to keep reminding myself that it wasn't an aquarium but the real thing.

Great excursion, very educational. if you'd like to know what kind of fauna is in the Red Sea, that is the place too go! We spent almost all day there! When in Eilat go there for sure!
