Valencia Oceanografic (L'Oceanogràfic) Tours

10 Reviews
One of several attractions within Valencia’s City of Arts and Sciences, the Félix Candela–designed Oceanografic (L’Oceanogràfic) is not only architecturally impressive. It also ranks among the world’s best aquariums, with more than 45,000 animals representing over 500 species from the world’s main marine ecosystems.

The Basics
Europe’s largest aquarium also ranks as the most popular attraction in the City of Arts and Sciences, with exhibits divided into 11 themed areas, including the Red Sea, Mediterranean, Arctic, and Antarctic. You can purchase admission just for the Oceanografic, or buy a ticket that includes other City of Arts and Sciences buildings—the Hemisferic and the Science Museum—at a discount. The aquarium is a stop on the Valencia Maritime route of the hop-on hop-off tourist bus, and you can see the impressive structures from the outside during a City of Arts and Sciences Segway tour.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Oceanografic is a must-see for animal lovers and families.
  • Many of the exhibits are outdoors, so don’t forget sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat.
  • The entire Oceanographic is accessible to wheelchair users; free wheelchairs are available.
  • English audio guides are available at the ticket office.

How to Get There
The Valencia Oceanografic is well connected by public transportation. Take metro Line 3 to Alameda Station, catch EMT Bus 95, or take advantage of Valencia’s bike-share program to cycle to the aquarium through Turia river park. 

When to Get There
The best time to enjoy the aquarium’s indoor and outdoor exhibits is from April to May, when weather is warm and crowds are sparse. Expect longer lines and temperatures up to 90°F (32°C) during the summer months. Be sure to check show times at the Dolphinarium before you arrive.

Eating with the Fishes
While the City of Arts and Sciences is home to several restaurants, none is quite so unique as the Submarine Restaurant inside the Oceanografic. In this underwater restaurant, you have the opportunity to dine in an ocean-like atmosphere, surrounded by more than 10,000 colorful fish.
