SEA LIFE® Porto Tours

SEA LIFE® Porto
One of Porto’s top attractions for families of all ages, the SEA LIFE® Porto aquarium is home to dazzling displays of marine life. Visitors can enjoy up-close encounters with some of the sea’s most colorful inhabitants, including octopus, rays, sea turtles, and sharks.

The Basics
Around 5,000 marine creatures splash around in SEA LIFE’s tanks. The displays are divided into individual zones, which include Freshwater Rivers, Ocean Cave, Turtle Shelter, Seahorse Temple, and Ray Bay. Highlights include a shark tunnel; a rock pool for handling crabs, sea stars, and sea urchins; glow-in-the-dark jellyfish; Mariza, a green turtle weighing over 280 pounds (130 kilograms); South American leaf fish; and cow-nosed rays. Check the schedule for shark- and ray-feeding times, as well as educational talks.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • SEA LIFE Porto is a must-visit for families.
  • The building is wheelchair- and stroller-accessible.
  • With a ticket, you can reenter the aquarium as many times as you wish that day.
  • All visitors under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult over the age of 18.

How to Get There

SEA LIFE Porto is located on Porto’s seafront, next to Praça de Gonçalves Zarco. Bus 500 from Porto São Bento in the center of Porto stops at Castelo do Queijo, a minute’s walk from the aquarium. If driving, you can park in the 24-hour underground parking space at the Castelo do Queijo roundabout.

When to Get There
The aquarium is open every day, except for Christmas Day, from morning until early evening, with slightly longer opening hours on weekends and during summer. Last entrance is allowed 45 minutes before closing. Note that lines to get into SEA LIFE Porto can be very long during the height of summer.

Sleepovers
Groups of children between the ages of 7 and 12 can spend the night in the aquarium. SEA LIFE Porto offers groups of at least 12 children (maximum 20) the opportunity to sleep underneath the ocean tunnel, where they can look up to see tropical fish, Mariza the giant sea turtle, and black-tip reef sharks.
