Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Basque Country / Province of Guipuzcoa / San Sebastian - Donostia / Aquarium
Learn the history of San Sebastián’s port and the creatures that roam its seas at Aquarium. Occupying a building dating to 1928 in a picturesque location on the city's harbor, the aquarium features tanks holding some 200 different marine species from the Bay of Biscay and a glass tunnel that provides a 360-degree, immersive view of surrounding marine life. Make sure you check out the huge skeleton of a northern right whale. Guided tours cover different themes, such as sharks, fisheries, and the Cantabrian Sea, so check to see what's on the schedule when you plan to visit. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, San Sebastian - Donostia holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Aquarium and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
360 viewing, amazing. Good for all mobilities as has lift and accessible toilets. 13€ good entry price, great to know history as well as see local fish and tropical too. Gift shop can do with a swerve as not a lot to choose from.
Great idea for families with kids It was a fun visit for myself and my boyfriend even though I'm pretty sure the younger visitors were much more excited than we were. Don't get me wrong the Aquarium is great, not massive (so not tiring) and very interesting. There is also a lovely giftshop for a few souvenirs on the way out. Just not my cup of tea... They have a beautifully set-up restaurant with great reviews and gorgeous views to the sea but we didn't stay for lunch.
