Heraklion: CRETAquarium Admission Ticket

1. Heraklion: CRETAquarium Admission Ticket

Venture into the ocean’s depth with a 1-day admission ticket to the CRETAquarium. One of Europe’s largest aquariums, over 2,000 sea creatures lice the CRETAquarium's 60 diverse habitats. Delve into the caves and crevices of the Mediterranean, where stingrays and rock-like scorpionfish slither about. Pop out into the open ocean, where menacing sharks circle, waiting to be fed. Get up close and personal with jellyfish and schools of vibrant tropical clownfish through shallow, open-topped tanks, which allow a new viewing perspective of well known species.  Above all, gain a new appreciation for the unending diversity of the world’s most mystifying environment. When you’ve had your fill of looking at the ocean’s residents, why not pop in for a dip? The CRETAquarium is, fittingly, right on the beach.

Very nice aquarium - it wasn't overcrowded, there was enough space and you could marvel at the various animals undisturbed. Just completely relaxed.

J’ai mis une note de 5 étoile car j’ai vu en vite fait et j’ai pu voir sur YouTube aussi car je n’ai pas pu m’y rendre pour de raison personnelle

Very nice facility with a lot to see. It's also good for photography. There is a restaurant and other dining options.

Great range of sea creatures to see and learn more about their habitat. Fast entry system with vouchers worked perfectly.

Beautiful and educational experience. Loved having the audio guides. Friendly staff. Clean, healthy sea life creatures.
