The more you know about our marine environment, the more you will grow to love and protect it. This was the concept on which the Curacao Sea Aquarium was built 35 years ago.
The world’s seas and oceans are extremely vulnerable and in desperate need of our protection. Coral reefs occupy a mere 1% of the world’s oceans. Their disappearance would affect 100% of the world’s population. Knowledge and preservation is our collective duty.
A facility of various aquariums and natural lagoons was built to house the diverse marine life that exists around the island, bringing it closer to the public. Implementing an innovative open water system ensuring that natural seawater flows through each basin, provides the perfect habitat. No filters, no chemicals! Even the lighting in the aquariums is natural sunlight.
The animals obviously need to eat. What better way to get up-close and personal than to create “Animal Encounters” where guests can snorkel in a large lagoon and help us feed sharks, stingrays and many more marine animals.
The innovations didn’t stop there. The latest addition to our intriguing list of experiences is like a page out of the famous Jules Verne novel. Descend down a staircase into an air-conditioned underwater observatory and look out through a large window to see the reef and its inhabitants in their full glory. The “Ocean Lens” is an exciting way to go 17ft (5m) underwater without getting wet. Expect the unexpected!
