As an island, it is easy to understand why marine life is such an important subject. The Curacao Sea Aquarium is more than your typical aquarium. In fact,it is one of the only aquariums in the world that uses an open-water-system, which means that seawater is continuously pumped in.

Sea Aquarium allows visitors the opportunity to view a variety of sea life, and tours and presentations are available. Some opportunities to touch the creatures are even presented.


Situated in the vicinity of Willemstad, 3.3 miles southeast of Otrabanda, Curacao Sea Aquarium always welcomes travelers who are lodging in this section of Curacao. Even if you aren't staying in the vicinity, you are free to stop by to enjoy a great time. If you're curious, Willemstad is to the northwest.
