I really enjoyed the sea lions. They were fun and playful. The trainers and narrators did a fantastic job. All the shows are translated into multiple languages. These guys do a great job engaging everyone. They also have dolphin shows and shark feeding

The first impression of the aquarium was that it was small. And when you first walk in, there is the gift shop, and then the Dolphin Academy, which is separate from the Aquarium... or at least it is extra. But once we started walking around,...More

I paid $21 to enter a very small aquarium that you can visit in less than 30 mins. If you are looking for a place to spend time with children save your money.

Never been a big fan of aquariums, but my girlfriend is, so...I enjoyed the place. The sea lion show was the highlight, but enjoyed most of the exhibits and other shows.

We enjoyed this experience in Curacao on a cloudy day. We enjoyed the dry land dolphin experience, feeding sharks, dolphin show, flamingo feeding, sea lion show, etc. Seeing animals in ocean habitats was fantastic.

We enjoyed our day at the Sea Aquarium. It was clean, the tanks were clean and it was a busy day. The shows while typical of the outdoor aquariums were a pleasure to watch as the animals seem to truly enjoy themselves. The flamingos were...More

The parking lot is a short walk from the Resort - across a bridge to the little island. You can drive in to check in and check out with your luggage. Since you have a car - drive to some of the different beaches. Porto... More
