The main attraction of the Palma Aquarium is the huge shark tank, which is 33 meters long, 25 meters wide and 8.5 meters deep. This makes it one of the deepest shark tanks in Europe. PADI-certified divers can, for a fee, be allowed to dive among the sharks. Other guests can walk through the tunnel and see the big sharks, rays and other exciting fish swim around them in the large aquarium. Pretty impressive!
