Who loves marine life, SeaLife is the right place. This space, which houses a dozens of aquariums, you can see about 100 different marine species. The building though not very big (about 2.400m2), is a perfect place for children, where they can get to know some of the species they like.
SeaLife has 5,800 marine animals, but the most "popular" and those children love most are clearly the black tips sharks , rays, clownfish, octopus and seahorses. You will also find native species of the Douro River such as barbel, trout, carp and minnows. The high point is the tunnel (although small) of the main tank where visitors can walk and enjoy a unique perspective of marine life.
