Enjoyable visit with some stunning views of exotic fish and other seal life. Lots to learn and some unusual sea life that his very well camouflaged. The sharks are terrifying but majestic and the tunnel gives a great view. I thought the penguins area wasn’t that big for these fabulous birds but seemed ok.

The sea lions outside were quite fun again not a massive area. The dolphin show was closed. Maybe Covid related. Fabulous big restaurant and staff were welcoming. Ok price for area.

The aquarium is a nice place to visit if you have time to kill. It is an older place and would need updating. The signage that shows the rules is outdated and should be replaced as it gives tourists a wrong message. Some of the exhibits have the wrong signage or none so guests have to guess the content. It would be nice to have merchandise that has the aquarium name and logo.

The most disappointing aquarium I've visited with my family, considering how expensive it is. Not surprising there were hardly any other visitors. Security staff are impolite and cleaners just stand in the middle of the walking area watching you. One to avoid.

We came to this aquarium with our 9 month old hoping to have a fun family experience. If you have young child that uses a stroller and you don't want to pack your child around, don't come here. We have a very small, flight carry-on size approved stroller, and we were turned away at the door told we can't bring it in. I don't know of any aquarium in the world that doesn't allow strollers. They are able to accommodate the handy capped, why not the very young. The most important customers of aquariums are children. Do Jeddah a favor and make these owners rethink their no-stroller policy by not giving them the satisfaction or your hard earned money.

The aquarium is a must see in Jeddah as there are so few fun family activities to do. My recommendation is to make sure you check the web before visiting, you want to make sure you visit when they are having one of their dolphin shows or the entry free is not worth the price.

While my visit was an adequate experience and I do support having an aquarium in Jeddah, I think the facilities could be less about buying gifts in the gift shop and more about how Saudi Arabia plans on saving it's reef and the eco system of the Red Sea. The fish displays were very nice but I felt too many fish for the relatively small tanks. And the penguins made me feel very sad. They seemed to be very unhappy. I believe there were 3 gift shops in the tour. And while they have very interesting gifts...I just LOVED the toy Octopus display.....I think Jeddah with it's investment in the Corniche could improve this facility dramatically. It was a nice 1 1/2 hours (we were too early for the show) in air conditioning. And I believe it was a good value for the price.

Overall a very good experience of both aquarium and the show.
I have enjoyed dolphin show previously too but never in this uncrowded place..
One can pay about 50 sar to get a pic clicked with a dolphin or seal. Must do for kids...
The restaurant next to the sea offers amazing view with cool misty breeze blowing your hair.
There are 3 or 4 restaurants in the premises, so one can spend good amount of time here.
Enjoy!
