      Not worth the trip.
      Azeem_J, Feb 2024
      Overpriced, run down. They try to overcharge you as tourists at the gate. We saw the whole thing within 45minutes.
      Good trip
      farida_f, Dec 2023
      Very nice experience. Loved watching the sharks being fed. Quite a variety of fish and animals to see
      No skip the line. Poor hygiene. Poor animal welfare.
      Grace_D, Oct 2023
      There was no skip the line option. Had to queue in the heat for paper tickets despite having a digital viator ticket. Poor hygiene when there. V poor animal welfare standards :(
      Vibrant and lovely
      Andjelija_N, Jul 2023
      Beautiful animals, lovely place, variety of species…enjoyed it very much…only not so good thing was waiting for entrance because of ticket exchange (electronic one was not accepted)
      Fun
      Ashley_C, Apr 2023
      We had a fun time- everything was clean and the staff was friendly. It was about a 1-1.5 hour activity.
      Great couple of hours.
      Christopher_O, Jan 2023
      Great couple of hours. Friendly staff. We’ll laid out and easy stroll around the grounds. Shop and cafe outside. Taxi was 50LE, very fair and reasonable, one way from Main Street Hurghada but as always, negotiate. Our driver returned 2 hrs later although there were 3 cabs in the parking area. We’ll worth a visit.

      Great aquarium
      Steven_B, Jun 2019
      Booked tickets online and walked to the aquarium. Very nice inside, really clean tanks and beautiful fish and animals. Much better than expected.
      Keine Wartezeit stimmt...
      Fabian_V, Nov 2023
      Keine Wartezeit stimmt nicht!!! Wir mussten 45 Minuten warten, da unsere Buchung nicht im System hinterlegt war und haben somit die erste Hai Fütterung verpasst. Alle die Bar bezahlt haben konnten direkt rein. Das Aquarium an sich hat sich gelohnt für den Preis! Erst nach Rücksprache mit dem Manager durften wir nach 45 Minuten Wartezeit das Aquarium betreten.
      Traurig!
      suleikag, Nov 2023
      Es ist alles verdreckt und schmutzig,die Fische haben schmutziges bis gar kein Wasser und werden überfüttert durch uns Touristen. Trauriges Erscheinungsbild-kein Besuch wert!
      Grundsätzlich ok... mit viel Luft nach oben
      Daniel_A, Aug 2023
      Grundsätzlich ist der Aquarium Bereich sehr gut gemacht. Aber dann endet es auch. Die Kois hatten so wenig Wasser das diese nur zu 2/3 mit Wasser bedeckt waren. Der Rücken stand immer raus. Der nachgelagerte Zoo ist für die Tiere ebenfalls viel zu klein. Vor Ort angesprochen heißt es nur pampig ... ist nach Vorschrift. Das stimmt vermutlich sogar. Nur nach Ägypten Standard und dann halt auch nur das minimalste. Am schlimmsten fand ich aber das Kamel. In voller Reitbekleidung mitten in der Sonne ohne Wasser. Und dann mit einer bekloppten Sonnenbrille. Als das Kamel sich offensichtlich aufrichtigen wollte würde es runtergedrückt und geschlagen. Ich wollte dann schon 5€ geben damit es mal frei laufen darf und ggf. Wasser bekommt... habe dann aber lieber davon abgesehen bevor die Tierquälerei zum Geschäft wird.
      Nicht Artgerecht
      Chris_S, Dec 2022
      Die Tiere wirken traurig. Viele haben kaum Platz und/oder es sind zu viele einer Art in einem Käfig/Aquarium. Sämtliche Pflanzen sind künstlich und es fehlt den Tieren an Abwechslung… Schade - aber warum muss man auch auf Zwang in so einer Gegend versuchen, so etwas aufzubauen. In der heutigen Zeit, wo man sich um so vieles Gedanken machen muss (Artenschutz, Klimaschutz etc.) ist so etwas nicht mehr zeitgemäß. Das Geld und Personal sollte man eher in die Pflege/Reinigung der „Stadt“ investieren… Ich selbst, bin nicht stolz auf den Besuch, aber der Kinder wegen und fehlenden Alternativen war es nun mal so…

      Dear Chris_S, We are sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with your visit at Hurghada Grand Aquarium, we take the welfare of our animals very seriously and strive to provide them with a comfortable and stimulating environment. Our animals receive regular veterinary care and are well fed and cared for. Regarding your concerns about the size of the enclosures, we follow strict international standards for animal welfare and provide our animals with adequate space to move around and explore. We also provide them with a variety of enrichment activities to keep them mentally and physically stimulated. Regarding the artificial plants, we use them to create a safe and hygienic environment for our animals. Using real plants may introduce harmful bacteria or insects that can negatively affect the animals. We do not accept derogatory language used towards our staff looking down to everyone's capability doesn't make you look great, it actually define on another side of character. What is wrong with the city? Once again thank you for your visit. Best regards, Jodie Elmkaly Hurghada Grand Aquarium
      Man sieht, dass die Initiatoren sich...
      Ruediger_G, May 2017
      Man sieht, dass die Initiatoren sich viel Mühe gegeben haben - leider wird das Aquarium im ägyptischen Alltag nicht so gepflegt, einige Außenanlagen Flamingos .. wirken heruntergekommen. Im Untergeschoss ein lehrreicher Film über Walskelette, die man kürzlich in der Wüste gefunden hat - leider hat niemand die Linse scharfgestellt, sodass der Genuss nur halb so schön war. Insgesamt sehenswert, allerdings sollte die Anlage deutlich besser gepflegt werden und auch der Eintrittspreis von 30,- 2017 ist für das Gebotene doch sehr hoch.

      From $31.00
