At the entrance, you can immediately find the Piranhas Area: after that, you will explore some freshwater and the beautiful Lake Garda. Afterwards, you find mysterious Alien Species and the environment of River Po Delta, the longest river in Italy! Leaving behind you the port, in front of your eyes there will be my favorite part: the Ocean Tunnel.

And of course you must not leave the tunnel without taking a photo inside!
Being a Disney fan, I could not help myself to sing the song (in my head) of Sebastian the crab of the Little Mermaid; “Under the sea, darling it’s better, down where it’s wetter, take it from me!”

The special thing about this tunnel is the sensation it gives to you, you just seem to be part of this amazing underwaterworld. At this point, you can move to the Shoaling Ring, a circular pool.

After an ancient shipwreck, two animals are waiting for you with a special event: in a few minutes it won’t be a secret anymore…

Going on, there it is: the wonderful Coral Reef. Enjoy challenges?

Then, here you are! Among the numerous fishes floating around, have fun and try “Finding Nemo” and “Finding Dory”! Does it sound familiar? Disney is everywhere.

Subsequently, there will be the Ocean View, some interactive pools near to the Clownfish Cave and the Interactive Ocean. Now, let’s go into a fairy tale place, known as Seahorses’ Magic Kingdom.

Did you know that they are in danger of extinction? Sea Life Aquarium takes care of the Seahorses also because of that. If one day they will be gone, the aquarium could save them by reintroducing the Seahorses into their habitat.

It’s not easy to find so much biodiversity in other places to visit on Lake Garda.

This escaping dream will end with the Tropical Lagoon and the captivating Jellyfish. In case you were wondering what to do in Sea Life Aquarium, now you know that there’s a plenty of choice!
