There are a total of 3 different areas in Aqua Planet Jeju; Aquarium, Ocean Arena, and Marine Science.
First to be covered will be the Ocean Arena. Depending on the period of your visit, the place may get packed. Therefore, it is advisable to arrive slightly before the show timing to get a good seat!
For those of you who are new to Aqua Planet, you may want to note that Ocean Arena is divided into two segments.
In the first half, you will be able to enjoy a wonderful underwater musical performance “Finding Sena”. Following the musical performance, is the second half! During this section, there will be a small ecology presentation prepared to provide information on ecology and habits of sea lions and dolphins!
The sea animals appeared soon after the presentation!
You will be able to witness for yourselves the incredible speed dolphins can swim. The dolphins will also make a series of jumps and high-pitched squeaks! Needless to say, you will certainly leave in amazement if you watch the show.
Next stop: the Aquarium!
The first sight that will greet you is a school of small fish in a small tank! Check out the beautiful photo above.
The aquarium is the place that will interest you if you wish to see all the different species of fishes that you can usually find only in books!
The aquarium is also home to 48,000 marine life and plants, with about 500 species in exhibitions, displayed around the aquarium!
In the main tank itself, you get to see about 27,000 marine species. That is more than half of the total marine species in the aquarium! It is almost as though you are gazing at the ocean from the inside…
The Marine Science area is the last section of the Aqua Planet. The Marine Science area operates like a mini-science centre. You will be able to learn about marine organisms and understand more about the seas, including the female divers unique to Jeju!
