Curacao Seaquarium, March 2011 May 18, 2011
We signed up for the "Dolphin Snorkel", which meant that we paid about $170/person for about twenty minutes playing with dolphins! Yes, it was overpriced, but we loved it, and we got to spend a lot more time than we expected in direct contact with these beautiful animals. We also got overpriced photos (WORTH IT!) and an overpriced DVD (not worth it....) By being in the right place at the right time, we also got our picture taken with a sea lion (only ten people from each sea lion show get to do this).

The Seaquarium also has some other standard exhibits much like a standard aquarium, and a number of shows (dolphin show is quite good) that are good, especially for families with children. I'm not sure it would be worth coming unless you were going to do one of the expensive animal encounters.

The Seaquarium may be overpriced, but it still was one of our most memorable experiences in Curacao and we've got some fantastic photos as a result.

Dolphin Academy in the Sea Aquarium Aug 22, 2009
We have visited the Sea Aquarium for one day and also made a swim with the dolphins. There are many animals living in the Sea Aquarium, such as sharks, pelicans, flamingo's, turtles, many sort of fishes, rays, starfishes, hedgehogs, sea lions and of course dolphins.

There is a show with dolphins, and you can see how they feed the sharks and other fishes and lobsters.

The dolphin swim was great. We were in a group with 5 people en 4 dolphins. It were two mothers and their children. You can do many practises with them, such as they kiss you, make noises, and go around in the water, and give you a hand. You will be pulled forward by two of the dolphins by holding their fins, that goes very fast. It was a day that we never will forget!

We have ordered the DVD en the photos from the swim with the dolphins.
