No matter how long your stay, if you are in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria a visit to the Poema del Mar aquarium is an absolute must. The aquarium is home to a massive variety of deep-sea, reef and jungles species from piranhas, amphibians, pig-nosed turtles to the giants of the sea, tiny fish and ocean floor dwellers.
With its massive tanks and glass walkways, the whole family can immerse themselves in the aquariums diverse and spectacular marine life. Watch as sharks and stingrays drift past and check out the smaller tanks teeming with mangrove swamp favourites, reef colonies and exotic jellyfish.
The aquarium takes pride in closely replicating the conditions and biodiversity that these species would experience in the wild and as such have a conservation programme aimed at promoting, protecting and preserving Hammerhead Sharks, Atlantic Angel Sharks and Loggerhead Turtles. With its bright, spacious and adant-garde style the aquarium is a must for anyone interested in protecting the incredible diversity of our planet.
In addition to the main feature’s, the aquarium also has a restaurant, snack bar, café and gift shop.
