The place isn't extremely high in quality but you must visit it at least once. The first time I went it was almost dark but thought "so what", but the animals were asleep and it was windy without any lighting. The management was kind enough to keep my ticket valid till tomorrow so I can come earlier. The staff is very helpful and friendly.

Awesome place. Suitable for all ages. Must visit the sharks feeding session. There are many types of livings here. There is a mini zoo. Don't forget to ask the staff to feed the animals, it's really fun. There is also a Café inside and outside. Suitable for all ages and very affordable. It's a must visit. If I go again to hurghada, I will visit the aquarium again for sure.

The first half of the walk through u wonder what you have done and was the $25 worth it. But the further you go through the spooky collection of animals and bats and fish ponds you eventually get to the real part. And it's fine. They didn't really promote swim with a shark until you basically ate at the end. Good to book for some great photos but don't know the price.

If you have not been to an aquarium before this is an ok one. With also a small outdoor zoo. I would recommend it if you have not been to an aquarium before or don't have an aquarium in your country. If you have been to other aquariums it does not worth the visit. Visit will take around 2 hours. Time for shark feeding is posted on the website. Though you have to be aware that it is the last piece to visit in the aquarium so you need to be 45 minutes to one hour before the shark feeding time in order to enjoy it and not to rush your visit

We had a great morning at the Aquarium. Follow the arrows on the route around the whole place so you get to see everything. At one point there is lots of stairs, so if you have a pram they do show you thru a short cut. A mixture of aqua life and small zoo animals meant my daughter loved it. Some cages where small but the animals looked clean and fed. My daughter even got a camel ride with a very grumpy camel, but a great memory for the whole family! Nice little shop to finish the visit with an ice cream and 2 photos cost us 80 le. Also if you are married to an Egyptian, as always carry your certificate and you can pay at the local price, not foreign price. Great place definitely recommend a visit if your in Hurghada.

Was a great place to visit and is apparently really cheap (we managed to get in for free with our travel rep). They let you feed the fishes and monkeys and hold the turtles and lizards. It was well built so you can move from one place to the next without getting lost. 1.5 hours is perfect, but we rushed around in 1.

It's a must go place. Your kids will love it. About 11am or so they make sharks feeding show. Many beautiful sea and land animals.

Good place to visit during your stay in hurghada. This is not only an aquarium, it also includes areas containing birds, and a camel. The trip requires at least 2 hours. There are daily shark feeding timings, you need to check before going if interested. There are professional photographers available throughout your trip, and they can provide the photos on your mobile or DVD. You can take your own photos, taking in consideration that flash is not allowed, since it harms the fish.

I actually loved this place! I would also gladly have given it full stars if the animals had better cages. I felt very sorry for the owl especially. It just didn't sit right with me. I also believe that all of the animal were entitled to more clean water. Furthermore, there was a huge lack of information. Some places there was non at all and some had English or only Arab. Seems very poorly thought out. However, the animals there were sweet and I enjoyed seeing all the fish.

It is very nice place, with very beautiful different kinds of fish and animals, my daughters liked the palace very much, l recommend to visit this place and to start your visit from 9 am to catch the fish feeding and you can take a very nice pictures with the fish
