Roqutas de Mar Aquarium

Roquetas de Mar in the province of Almería, Andalucía, used to be an old fishing village but is now gradually becoming more well-known as a laid-back tourist resort, with a gentler pace of life than some of the more popular resorts nearby.

Yes, there are several blue-flag sandy beaches, bars, restaurants, a working city life and even a castle, but this town on the Costa Almería has something to offer visitors that many others don’t, and that’s the chance to swim amongst sharks.

This adrenalin-pumping activity can be carried out at the town’s Aquarium, one of the most important educational resources about sea life in the whole of the Andalucía region.

The aquarium has a total area of 3,000 square metres, and 2 million litres of water are divided between the different spaces within the centre.

Half of the water is concentrated in the main oceanarium, and it is here that it is possible to dive and swim with the centre’s sharks.

These special programmed dives are reserved to take place on Fridays and Sundays from 4pm, and must take place with the aid of Aquatours diving school’s experts.

Actually diving and swimming with the sharks is available for certified divers, but those without experience can enter the tank and get really close up to the three-metre-long sharks in a submarine cage used in deep-sea-diving expeditions.

The centre is divided into four sections, starting off with fish found in rivers. Here you will find freshwater fish, including piranhas. The second zone is dedicated to tropical species that you would typically find in an area of coral reef.

The third zone, which contains an arched tunnel visitors can walk through, consists of sea life found within our oceans. It is here that the sharks and other larger species are homed.

And the final section is where you will see the species of sea life that live in the Mediterranean Sea.

For those interested in carrying out a dive with the sharks, contact the Aquarium via email at: or by telephoning: 950 160 036.
