This observatory is one of Eilats biggest attractions and one of the most beautiful observatories in the region.
There are many activities available. In addition to all the regular attractions of the huge Aquariums which contains many colorful animals (there are huge Sharks too...) and other creature and sea plants.
There is the "Corals Pearl" ship wich leaving the Marina (the north part of Eilat) and goes until the Underwater observatory. In the way you can see the beutiful Corals when you will go down to the butom of the ship which made of glass.
There is the "Yellow Submarine" which goes 60 meters under the sea level and sails near the beutifil colorful corals.
The Submarine and the ship depart in fixed hours, you may call them beforre toreserve a ticket.
If you go to the Underwater park with kids then the kids can feed the fishes between 11:30 to 13:40...
There is a big Tower in the site. At the ground floor there is a restaurant, if you go down you will be under the sea level, you will see the water animals and the corals and you will feen like in a huge aquarium. If you will go up from the ground floor to the Top you will have an amazing view to the all region but take into consideration that there are close to 100, a bit exhausting.
The new big attraction of the park is the Oceanarium. a big hall (like cinema) where you see a film about the life in the sea. You can really feel like you are a part of the film, you come down from space with a spaceship and suddenly you can feel the chairs tremble hard when you hit the water... very cool and exiting!!!
There are also estaurants, kiosks and souvenir shops in the park.
It opens from 8:30 to 16:30 and cost about 79 NIS for adult and 69 NIS for a child including a visit at the Oceanarium.
