The aquarium is located on the harbor, "Sanapú Pier", only 200 meters from Las Canteras, Santa Catalina Park, and Elder Technical Museum. The Shopping center "El Muelle Mall" and "Curiskip Harbor" where the big cruise ships are located when visiting Las Palmas, are also close by the aquarium.
The aquarium is divided into three sections: marine surface ecosystems, deep marine ecosystems and freshwater life.
On the way into the deep
The visit begins in the first section, "the jungle", where they have reproduced the landscapes from the five continents.
The other part of "Poemo del Mar", Arrecife, takes you on a trip down a downward spiral, around a large cylinder, where you will experience a large and colorful selection of coral and fish.
The trip ends in Deep Sea, the deepest part where you can see fish and sharks through the world's second largest panama window in the aquarium, 33 meters long, seven meters high.
Preserves endangered species
"Poemo del Mar" also supports the conservation of endangered species in the Atlantic Ocean, in collaboration with the "Loro Parque Foundation", an organization with over 20 years of experience and with more than 100 conservation projects in 30 countries.
The aquarium is open from 9-18.
