Crete Aquarium

We were stopping in Gouves so as the Crete Aquarium was nearby we decided to make it our first stop on our first day.
It's €8 for Adults and €6 for children so it is a little on the pricy side as far as tourist attractions on crete go (Knossos is €6 ) but it is certainly worth a visit. The large display tanks contain the sea life from the Mediterranean, everything from Jellyfish to Sand Sharks
You are allowed to take photos (without flash) and I found that it was much better to take short videos.
We walked along the sea front to get there as it only took us about 15 minutes but there is ample parking for people staying further away.

See my video of the Aquarium here.
