We enjoyed our visit to the aquarium. Clean, modern building, great location as was within walking distance of our hotel

Small aquarium with few different breeds of fish--most of the tanks were small and the fish had little room to swim. In many tanks there was an indication on the screen of certain types but then you could not actually see them inside. Some tanks were not clean enough.

Immersive Exploration of Malta's Marine Life

Embark on a delightful journey into Malta's underwater world through 41 expertly themed tanks home to a variety of species. The chronological excursion begins with the exploration of Malta’s Western Shoreline & Submarine in Zone 1, teeming with native Mediterranean species such as the gilt-head sea bream and European sea bass.

As you progress, the Valletta Harbour in Zone 2, the Tropical Oceans in Zone 3, and Roman Times in Zone 4, unfold offering a panoramic view of local fish, exotic marine life, and ancient Roman shipwrecks.

Unending Underwater Adventures

Be awed as you walk through the main tank's tunnel, a 12-meter diameter space filled with exotic species like black tip sharks, zebra sharks, leopard sharks, bamboo sharks, rays, and eels. Tip: You could get the chance to watch staff feed the sharks at 1pm and 4pm!

Continue on to Zone 5, where you'll encounter the stunning vistas of Gozo and Comino islands, accompanied by thriving freshwater tanks. A surprising addition to your aquatic venture is the Reptiles & Amphibian Area, home to fascinating creatures like Argentine tegus, Brazilian red and white tarantulas, deadly poison dart frogs, and diverse invertebrates.
