You are able to feed lobsters, flamingos, watch dolphin and sea lion training demonstrations. A great way to spend an afternoon.

We stayed at The Royal Sea Aquarium for the week and the admission was included with the resort stay. It was a sweet little aquarium but not worth the normally $22 price. It was very small but the dolphin show was pretty nice.

Low key aquarium... Always nice to see the dolphins and sea lions, albeit their “shows” only lasted about 15 minutes... It was a nice break from other island adventures, but honestly I was glad it only cost $21 per person... There just really was not...More

Quaint little aquarium with by far the coolest animal interaction tour I’ve ever been on. Snapper the Sea Lion was gentle, loving, funny and so sweet. We got multiple up close and personal interactions from a kiss on the cheek, hugs, feeding. What was most...More

A few tanks with the typical fish and starfish, everything seems to evolve around the "dolphin experiences", swimming with them, a photo of a dolphin kiss etc. Appears to be a big money make for them based on the cost. We save a 20 minute...More

The aquarium is quite good for people from the city and from areas away from the sea. But for people who go snorkeling and live by the sea it's nothing special. If you pay extra you can interact with dolphins on different levels. You can...More

Enjoyed our visit to the sea aquarium - there was something for all ages. Some of the family swam with the dolphins, others of us saw the sea lion show and toured the glass bottom boat, and we all meandered through the exhibits. While there...More

This is our third trip to the island. We come here every time. Especially terrific is the sea lion show and the dolphin show. Great place to take the kids.

The Pros This aquarium sits right on the Caribbean Sea. The dolphin encounter attraction actually is connected to the sea. The dolphins can actually exit to the open ocean. The glass-bottom boat was phenomenal. We got an up-close and personal view of sharks, sting rays,...More

My family attended the Curacao Sea Aquarium as an excursion during a Royal Caribbean cruise. This is a nice little park, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The trip started with a very reasonable taxi ride from the cruise port. Not very long, no problems. Once...More

Yes it allows you to see all the shows advertised. The only things you would pay more for would be if you wanted to interact with the animals such as swimming with the Dolphins or snorkeling for example

The ticket price only gets you in to view the exhibit and the so called shows they put on. Not worth it in my opinion. The price to be in the water and touch the dolphins was 99$. To swim with them was twice as much. Way to... More
