    Visit the Shark Pool

    Probably one of the most famous Underwater Observatory Eilat attractions, the shark pool is a completely safe way of getting up close and personal with these deep-sea predators.

    Within touching distance, you'll see real-life sharks, stingrays, manta rays, large schools of fish and beautiful coral reefs. You'll even be able to walk through a transparent tunnel and watch the sharks swim over you. The Underwater Observatory Eilat also offers two daily shark feeding shows at 11:30 a.m. or 3:00 p.m.

    Rare Fish Aquarium

    See over 800 species of beautiful rare fish with parts of the reef that have never before been seen even by experienced divers! With 35 aquariums hosting unusual predators, corals and rare fish only found in the Gulf of Eilat, you'll want to experience this during your Eilat vacation. You'll be able to see the fish being fed daily at 12:00 p.m.

    Turtle Pool

    Turtle Island is extremely popular with younger visitors. With two types of turtle species living in the naturally recreated environment, Dozens of turtles are hatched every year, raised in the underwater observatory park and released to the sea once they are old enough. Turtles are protected animals in Israel, and this is a fascinating way to get up close and personal with them. You can watch the turtles being fed at 12:30 p.m daily
