Over 300 marine-life species are available for viewing here. Typical Canarian gems include eye-catching clown fishes (Nemo!), blowfishes, gilthead seabreams, loggerhead sea turtles and hermit crabs.
If you want up close and personal with the fishes, you can dive in do that with no PADI certification required. Right before your eyes in the Oceanarium you will see nurse sharks, smooth-hound sharks, as well as stingrays and eagle rays; and that’s on top of the hundreds of other fish in the main tank.
