This place is must be visited when you are in Eilat. It gives you full picture of Red sea coral reef fauna and nature. Very nice. You can spend hours inside of this place moving from window to window and see so beautiful sea creatures.

We enjoyed our visit on a bit cloudy day. A huge variety of sea animals. Nothing spectacular but good. Try to avoid coming here on public holidays.
