“Huge crowd and the varieties of fish not too bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

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.
Anyway, I would not like to complain as the place can be quite an enjoyable place to be if we can find a day when it is not that crowded and the number of varieties of fish is not that bad.

“Price Increased??? why????”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

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...

“Too expensive, Small place”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

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 Rp.90.000. The only nice thing is that they had a new collection of hammerhead sharks, and a touch pool with a black-tip shark.

Overall, i don't think i will be coming anytime soon, but when i do,i will wait for a credit card promo for the seaworld tickets

overall the place is well maintain, hope they can keep it up and make it better.

“Entertaining Yet Educating Exhibit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

If you only want to come here this exhibit is indoor. Air con, well kept and clean, there will be some areas covered by travelator. 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. The guide there will let you touch and hold them right. There's also a museum showing very huge Stingray named Parmi and telling every stories of her life and explaining more details about stingray.

Do ask the keeper on feeding time of the shark as you will be able to watch from the glass.

Cheers. . .
