AquaRio Aquarium Admission with Transport

by Rio Carioca Duration 4h Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per traveller Price is £86

Encounter nearly 350 diverse species of marine creatures with a visit to AquaRio, the largest aquarium in South America. Convenient transport drops you off right at its steps, leaving to explore the aquarium's huge tanks, underwater tunnels, and touch tanks to your heart's content.

Easy pick-up from your hotel transports you straight to AquaRio in the Port Zone. At 6.4 acres (2.6 ha), the aquarium, which is home to 8,000 animals over 350 distinct species, is the largest in South America. Dive on in—upon entering, you're immediately greeted by an enormous 42-foot (13-metre) skeleton of a humpback whale, which sets the tone and the scale of your day.

Get lost in thought as you gaze at Recinto Oceanico, the aquarium's 22-foot (7-metre) deep main tank that holds over 9.4 million (35.6 million l) gallons of water and countless aquatic creatures. Get an inside perspective with a walk in the undersea tunnel that cuts through it, or visit the Virtual Aquarium, where you can create your own fish and watch it swim through digital screens. For a more hands-on experience, visit the touch tanks and learn about reef creatures, or opt to dive into the enormous tanks and swim with fishes, manta rays, and even sharks. At the end of your exciting and educational day, reflect on your experiences as you enjoy the ride back to your hotel.
