Sea World at Ancol, Jakarta

IMG-20130704-00331

I recently returned to Sea World at Ancol, Jakarta. Cost is reasonable, roughly $6 per head. (60,000 IDR) They have several new exhibits, including some Giant Japanese Spider crabs Macrocheira kaempferi which can reach 3-4 metres leg spans. Unfortunately, they no longer offer the swimming with sharks option, though the scuba with the fishes option is still available. And they have this really neat car turned fish tank!

They have a particularly long underwater tunnel. An educational room of preserved fish with a huge shovel ray, gift shop, touch tank (with turtles, sharks and starfish), plus a room for fish spa therapy 🙂

Mini shows include;

  • Dugong Feeding
  • Shark Feeding
  • Main fishtank feeding
  • Turtle feeding (children hands on activity)
