Being a tourist aswell as having a interest in nature & wildlife the aquarium was on my to do list. Fair enough, what is there is good but there isn't much at all! If you've been to one aquarium you've been to better. Unless you spend time staring into each tank you'll be out in 10 minutes. It's pretty much... More

Small but ok, for a little island is a good stop to see around 50 species and is clear and clean the water. Not bad

Lot's of different fish to see, nice atmosphere and a thrilling experience for my little daughter of nearly five. Inexpencive thing to do in the little town of Porto Moniz.

My wife and I were enthralled by the quality of the design and opportunity to dive with the fishes. Worth a visit

Since it was too cold for the pools, we went here, but it is super small and definitely not worth a visit to Porto Moniz of its own. Price doesn't reflect the quality. It was nice half an hour, but nothing special to remember .

Bit expensive if you consider these are a few small fish tanks and one big one. Still nicely serviced and a half hour of your day well spend.

The aquarium on the sea front at Porto Moniz is well worth a visit if: you are really interested in the fish found in local waters; if you have small children to entertain; or if you need to kill half an hour during a shower. Don't bother if you are with teenagers or if you are looking for spectacle. The... More

It is very small, has 1 huge and no more than 15 very little (<30 l) tanks with several fish/ shrimps in it. You can see more in a good pet fish store and would be happier. Went out in 10 mins. Felt dissapointed and missed my 7 eur immediately.

We went to Porto Moniz for sightseeing. I believe that they had just about all of the fish that is in the waters of the surrounding area, in the tanks. Located right at the waters edge near a natural pisina. I really liked the curvature of the over head view of the fish tank it felt like the fish were... More
