The Underwater World of Sea Aquarium. The Curaçao Sea Aquarium is
home to one of the largest collections of marine life in the Caribbean. At
feeding time, you can reach out and touch stingrays, sea turtles, sharks,
and other colorful fish. For a truly special experience, you can jump right
in and snorkel or dive amongst the sea life. Or stay dry and keep an
eye on all the colorful creatures from the windows of the Underwater
Observatory Boat, museum, and theatre.
If you’ve dreamed of getting up close and personal with dolphins, the
Dolphin Academy is a must. Children of all ages can meet and pet the
dolphins. But the real show stoppers are the Snorkel Programme and
Open Water Dive Course, where you go out to sea and swim with
dolphins at one of Curaçao’s finest coral reefs.
For a uniquely exciting - but safe and dry - way to explore the underwater
world, look into Substation Curaçao, the only deep-sea submarine taking
visitors to a depth of 320 meters under the sea. The Curasub takes up to
four passengers and goes deeper than any scuba dive could ever go. It’s
not cheap, but it is the experience of a lifetime!
The newest attraction of the Sea Aquarium is the Ocean Lens, an
underwater observatory. After waking down a set of stairs at a 5-meter
depth, you will enter into a chamber with a large window overlooking the
reef drop off in spacious, airconditioned comfort.
Children’s Museum. This is in every way the youngest museum of Curaçao.
Founded in 2017, this museum features numerous interactive exhibits
where children learn through the power of play. Unlike a traditional
museum, children are encouraged to touch, create, and manipulate. The
museum is accessible for all children (ages 1-8) and their families.
