Full description
Venture into the ocean’s depth with a 1-day admission ticket to the CRETAquarium. One of Europe’s largest aquariums, over 2,000 sea creatures lice the CRETAquarium's 60 diverse habitats. Delve into the caves and crevices of the Mediterranean, where stingrays and rock-like scorpionfish slither about. Pop out into the open ocean, where menacing sharks circle, waiting to be fed. Get up close and personal with jellyfish and schools of vibrant tropical clownfish through shallow, open-topped tanks, which allow a new viewing perspective of well known species.  Above all, gain a new appreciation for the unending diversity of the world’s most mystifying environment. When you’ve had your fill of looking at the ocean’s residents, why not pop in for a dip? The CRETAquarium is, fittingly, right on the beach.

Es ist klimatisiert und besonders bei der jetzigen Situation, ist M-N-B Plicht. Hygienemaßnahmen gibt es und es wird nur eine bestimmte Anzahl von Personen/ Familien hineingelassen. Das Aquarium ist nicht das Größte und hat eine Auswahl von Meeresbewohnern parat, die aus der Region und dem umliegenden Meer kommen. Es gibt große und kleine Becken die man ansehen kann. Besonderes Highlight ist das große Panorama Becken, da kann man sich hinsetzen und beobachten. Die Haie sind ebenfalls ein beliebtes Ziel. In gut 1-1,5h ist man durch. Für Familien sollte der Besuch im Programm stehen, die Kinder werden es Ihnen danken.
