In 1984, the Curaçao Seaquarium was developed. This unique complex -- built on the oceanfront at Bapor Kibra, next to Lions Dive hotel -- has a healthy coral reef just a stone’s throw from the entrance and makes a great family outing. This beautiful aquarium complex is one of the most unique in the world because of its "open-water-system" -- meaning that seawater is continuously pumped into the aquariums. During visiting hours, the aquariums, theatre, and museum are open to the public, and you can enjoy watching feeding shows. Part of the fun learning experience of our Curaçao sea aquarium is a big “touch tank” for touching live animals.
During the feeding shows, you can touch the animals and learn more about them. For some real fun, you can snorkel or scuba dive and hand-feed stingrays, sea turtles, sharks, and many other colorful tropical fish. After all that excitement, you can relax in the coolness of the museum and theatre. Watch a feeding show, shop for souvenirs, have lunch in the restaurant, and swim along the sandy beach.
