This aquarium is located 'within walking distance' (eastwards) of the popular Sunscape Hotel. However, we were pleased that we had a rental car on that day and could drive there. The entrance charge is a high $22 for non-residents, although we - as over-60s - could get in for half-price. The various small aquaria on display are not top-rate by... More

We walked from the Sunscape about a mile to the Marine Park (aquarium). There were quite a few aquariums to view several types of fish and they had two touching areas for people to touch sea creatures.

Please, go to "Ocean Encounters" and make a dive with them! If it will be you first time, don't doubt it! They are very good option for you. I made divings all around the world and Aruba, Bonaire and Curazao have an unbelievable underwater marine park!! Don't miss it please!!

This one is the three best preserved reefs of the Caribbean. This hard to reach reef, only by boat, should be protected above all costs. It's like an heritage to humanity we need to preserve for tomorrow. Once it's gone, it won't come back. Now we can still enjoy it and take care of. I've been a lucky diver that... More

I have never been on a submarine before. So, it was a new experience for me. there is plenty of pacific flora that you can see. Also you can schools of fishes passing by. But when they send their divers to feed the fishes, they are all over the boat. So, plenty to photo ops
