I attended here based on there advertised display of Hammerhead Sharks. I was disappointed to find that all of these sharks were juveniles and none were any bigger than maybe 600mm in length. The display of sea creature was not representative of what was advertised with many creatures not on display. To my horror they had touch tanks for sharks,... More

This was our third visit. And this time we gave ourselves time to see all the feeding occasions. Kids will love it. The newly introduced Hammer head sharks are awesome and so are the massive dugongs. It is very crowded on weekends and you need to be very alert to keep track of your kids. Touch pool is quite safe.... More

This place has different things to do. Take the aquarium of Sea World. Quite impressive actually. Touch real fish. Walk under the mantas. Good fun for children. There is also a swimming pool and art craft village nearby. You'll need a car (taxi) to get there. Reduction for the "eldery", which in Indonesia starts at 55...

We didn't really have high expectations but what we found was even worse. Being a week day it wasn't very busy at all. We paid for the Dolphin show which was scheduled for 4.15 but we left at 5pm after waiting in an empty arena. As we walked out we saw the dolphin enclosure and was horrified, it was about... More

Although the place is not as big as I imagined, it was all right. I went on a Sunday and the crowd was a bit too much for comfort and going through the short tunnel in a jam packed condition make it a bit disappointing as we would not have the opportunity to really enjoy the sights inside the aquarium....

Nice place to learn and interact with sea creature. Located at North Jakarta. During high season, it will be jammed and crowded with visitors. Have 3 nice restaurants just in case your family feel the hunger… :-) Just avoid the high season, go early and enjoy it...

Sea world is not at big as i thought it was. They had a short length tunnel, and i thought that everything was too packed together in one floor. They try to make it look big, but really, it's just not. The price was not as much as they stated on their website. Instead of Rp.60.000 for weekdays, i paid... More

On each aquarium there will be reference and remark on each species. Its very educating and entertaining. They also have small pond inhibit by sea cucumber/teripang and star fish.

There is some good displays and it is cheap to enter. Not as good as ocean park Hong Kong but only $7 to get in. Worth a visit. The sharks were closed but everything else was open.
