Lanzarote AquariumThe Lanzarote Aquarium is the largest aquarium in the Canary Islands, with over a million litres of water, distributed in 33 aquariums in which hundreds of marine species can be observed and enjoyed.
Lanzarote Aquarium has a large biological collection where you can find native fish from the Canary Islands, such as the triggerfish, "golden fishes" and "fulas", and beautiful tropical fishes of different colours and forms, such as clown fishes, poisonous fire dragons, globe fishes, funny lobsters and cleaning crabs. Visitors can observe an ample variety of warm water sharks, swimming gently inside the main water tank of 500,000 litres from various panoramic windows.
Lanzarote Aquarium has six touching-pools where both children and adults can touch and enjoy animals such as sea cucumbers, starfish, sea urchins, coastal-zone fish and small crabs while learning about their anatomy and way of life.
The aim of the Aquarium is to show the marine world and all its wonders to everybody who wants to enjoy an escape from reality by diving into the depths of the sea. However, the great importance of environment education has not been forgotten. With this in mind, they have created a "rubbish aquarium", a small re-creation of the current state of some areas of Lanzarote's coast, aiming to raise environmental awareness that will make it possible for sea life to continue without the dangers of marine contamination.
Lanzarote Aquarium also offers the opportunity to dive inside the main water tank with the Nurse Shark "Besito" (2m long), the Stingray "Conan" (1.80m diameter), more than 30 Bambus Sharks, Groupers etc.
