    • The San Sebastián Aquarium is one of the most popular attractions in the Basque Country, with 300,000 visits a year. It is an obligatory stop for all visitors to the city. The Aquarium stands in one of San Sebastián’s most picturesque spots, the harbour, right next to the Old Town, with its enormous gastronomic selection, and only a few minutes from the city centre.

      The San Sebastián Aquarium occupies an emblematic building dating from 1928, with two floors dedicated to the maritime and marine heritage of Gipuzkoa. Particularly interesting is the skeleton of a northern right whale in addition to numerous tanks dedicated to the Bay of Biscay, in which you can view more than 200 species, not forgetting the famous 360º tunnel and a variety of tropical species.

    Outstanding aquarium! My grandchildren really enjoyed it. Lots to see and experience. There is a large area with exhibits to learn things about sea life, then lots of living exhibits. There are also some interactive exhibits for the kids. The walk through glass aquarium is excellent. I also felt that the price was very reasonable.

    the aquarium is rather small, you’d see more as like a museum to be honest as there s basically only one big pool to see fishes for 14€ per adult. Thing is, it gets super noisy as s overwhelmed with families with little kids screaming around, so I personally couldn’t enjoy my time so much. Still worth for an hour of a rainy day

    A good place to visit. I was not expecting the maritime museum part, so that was a bonus. Nice displays all through, with a remarkable tunnel.

  • "Shark Tunnell"

    5 / 5 Reviews posted by JamieH767 (Lancashire, United Kingdom) on 26/11/2023

    The aquarium tunnel here is very good, there are two large sharks and is well worth seeing. The large rays are also cool to see.
