Worth a visit, well set up, but can be crowded

Definitely book in advance and skip the queue. Once in there is series of fish tanks with a great array of different fish. It was crowded when we visited making it difficult to see and you need to jostle a bit. The main tank is great with a clever conveyor belt to stand on so everyone gets a fair turn viewing. Need just about one to one and half hours. Skip the cafeteria nothing special there. Gift shop is just throw away toys (shame).

Great aquarium with great species to observe

Barcelona aquarium was worth visiting. Lot's of different species including octopus (first time seeing them) and rays (my beloved ones). The place is really crowded but everyone has a chance to have a close look at any particular aquarium. For those who are planning the visit, save your time by buying an eticket. The lines are very long and daunting.

Absolutely amazing experience for all of us. Nice and relaxing.

As soon as we got a small distance from the port, Eduado gave me the steering wheel and let me take it out to sea and back. He showed different techniques and asked us questions we all found it relaxing and calm. The most important thing was that we all had laughs and wide smiles on our faces thank you Eduado from captain Thomas /Tom

Great stuff nice gentle amble around Barcelona sea front.

The live jazz is a saxophonist playing along to a backing track, he plays whilst docked in harbour to get people on board then packs away till half hour or so into the voyage, worth it over all though. Just don't expect a live jazz band.

Exceptional view of Barcelona city and port

I take the ticket without option tasting wine. You can add at the office of Columbus monument also this option. Even if i book the ticket for 20 August and i was to visit the Monument on 22 August and it was ok - they receive me :).
