Overview

Aquaworld - Crete's first Aquarium - opened in Hersonissos in 1995 - near Bus Stop 20. It features local sea life and reptiles from Crete and from all around the world. Most of the animals are rescued or are unwanted pets which have found a new home at Aquaworld. Our philosophy is simple - bring people and animals closer together and, inevitably, people will begin to respect and care more about the animals!

We really enjoyed touching all the snakes and other raptiles, this is a great place for kids also. I would recommend to visit it for everyone, there is also a big Aquaworld outside the city, but you can not touch animals there

A place to see and learn about marine creatures in the region. The way there is a bit run down but the place itself and the aquariums and lovely.

This is a great place to spend an hour or so in the company of some lovely creatures, the enthusiasm of the owner and the staff is plain to see, and I look forward to visiting again

A few smaller and bigger aquariums, but the attraction are the reptiles. The guides let you handle the snakes, geckos and lizards. I don't know what the animals think of being handled by all the tourists, but it was an experience. All the reptiles are...More

Or if you want to see and touch reptiles, this is a great place to go. You have a chance to see snakes, big and small turtles and other reptiles.

Hello, it is totally safe because the snakes are in their cages and a caretaker takes them out and gives them to you, only if you want to hold them. If you don't want to touch them, you can only look at them. But the a big... More
