The Underwater Observatory Marine park in Eilat is the world’s only underwater observatory and has been chosen as one of Israel’s leading and most beloved attractions. The underwater park boasts the largest shark pool in the Middle East which passes across a transparent tunnel simulating walking across the sea floor with sharks circling above, dozens of aquariums with rare colors, and aquatic animals living at the bottom of the sea. Visitors can experience life in the depths of the sea and underwater creatures that they have never seen. Guided diving dives for the whole family from the age of 8 and without the need for prior experience in diving are also available with reservations in advance.
The park is divided into indoor and outdoor spaces suitable for visits all year round with entertainment for children and adults alike. Visit the website for to find out about new and upcoming attractions as well.
On Passover 2020 the park will add a new innovative attraction which will enable visitors a spectacular visual 360 degrees experience using revolutionary technology first offered in Israel. Viewers will look into the depths of the sea within touch of whales and other sea creatures, including original fish sounds in a 360 degree peripheral. Unlike regular 3D projection in which you can see only the monitors in front of you, this promises to be an extraordinary life-like experience.
The park is also a center for preserving the environment and its team of divers partner in Red Sea cleaning operations and coral rehabilitation. The observatory’s scientific team also handle marine animals found injured in the sea until they are released back into the water.
