Overview
Take a walk under the sea at Underwater Observatory Marine Park. Enter the heart of Eilat’s coral reef and get to know the submerged world of the Red Sea. Go down into the display halls built six-metres underwater, look through the glass and see over 800 species of coral, sharks, fish, stingray, and turtles swimming past colourful coral. Pass through the acrylic tunnel and see marine life floating overhead.
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Visit: Underwater Observatory Marine Park, Highway 90, Eilat 88106 Israel

    Purchase your ticket to the Underwater Observatory and experience a fun day out for all of the family. The observatory is a tower situated in the sea without any fencing or cages, and offers a view of the Red Sea reef with all its colors and hues and the spectacular creatures that live in and around it. The tower consists of two display halls sunk at a depth of 6 meters below sea level; through its giant windows you can see the amazing beauty of the coral reef in all its natural splendor.

    Shark World, the largest shark pool in the Middle East. This is a new attraction that has now opened. It is the largest shark pool in the Middle East, an astonishing glimpse of the mysterious world of these deep sea creatures. Covering a huge area of 1000sq m, the pool contains three million liters of sea water. The pool is traversed by a transparent acrylic tunnel, allowing visitors to see the sharks at their fingertips as they circle around above and beside them. This is a breath-taking experience that simulates a rare stay in the depths of the sea. Like all our aquariums, the shark pool houses a complex ecosystem that perfectly imitates the waters of the Gulf of Eilat, with thousands of spectacular fishes and corals. An experience not to be missed!

    Next up, the Turtle pools, stingray pools, Red Sea coral reef, and rare fish range. The Amazon Hut is also a splendid display of exotic creatures from the faraway Amazon River: a giant anaconda snake, piranhas, crocodiles, predators and many other animals.

    Finally you can visit the adventure park for children with petting pools, pet fish feeding and much more.  At the feeding observe the feeding of the unique marine creatures that live in the waters of the Red Sea.

    A nice place to see the reefs teeming with tiny colourful fishes. However it becomes very crowded and there are no guides in English language. The aquarium has a good collection of sting rays and hammerhead shark. Suitable for small kids. The restaurant on the observatory has

    Really great and interesting place to visit, if you are interested in fish and sealife (interesting both for children and adults). They have so many rare fish and corals and turtles and sharks and... On certain times of the day, they feed the sharks and turtles and talk about

    This was a revisit after 20 years and was far better than I remember - in fact, it was superb! Spectacular views from the various sections of the observatory. Very educational: clearly lots of thought has gone into explaining each section. Staff helpful and friendly especially
