“Simply the sea on your palm!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

This is my third visit of the Sea World in Ancol, There are still so many fish to see and glare in those amazing aquariums. There are some new thing inside the sea world, like the "Shark Quarium" and some fish that i have never seen in my life.
But one thing makes me sad, when i realized that my favorite GIGANTIC stingray fish already gone and become some decoration on the museum :( Still what a letdown, when one of the most anticipated thing to see in every visit of mine to this place is him. The good news is, all the other thing is more improved than the last time i visited! And for the price, still reasonable for an entertainment place!

Not much to say but , last but not least as always! overall? "the best place to take a peek inside the Sea in Indonesia"!

“Quite small but plenty of fishes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

Real piranhas. I could see many many types of fish. From shark, catfish, octopus and... Piranhsa. Yay.
It was a really good destination. Very well maintained and clean.
Air conditioned and do not smell.
Quite small but it's still ok at all.
I was a lovely place to visit.

“now this is what you call a sea world!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

I've been dissapointed greatly by Manila sea world, but this place must be something, there are quiet varieties of species (some shark and piranhas there!) in there and the place is well-maintained! The aquarium tank showcase is very good and took a little while to actually finished it,

“Decent Little Aquarium”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

The aquarium is small, but a good family destination and a good way to kill an hour and a half. There are sea turtles, rays and small sharks that you can touch. There are otters that are fun to watch and a viewing tunnel. It's worth checking out if you like aquariums and it was cheap. I actually wrote a blog about my sightseeing in Jakarta and included pictures of this place for those interested: http://andreainindonesia.wordpress.com/2012/11/17/adventure-time/

“Could be improved”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Not the best Aquarium I have been too could have a better variety of marine life, but Ancol is a lovely place and a great way to spend a day.
