What to Expect in SEA LIFE Busan Aquarium

SEA LIFE aquariums across the world are known for their stunning presentations of the marine ecosystem, but their location in Busan takes the experience to a whole new level! Aside from scenic tunnels and tanks that house 10,000 creatures, SEA LIFE Busan also has a vivid LED room called Sea at Night, a Bingo Zone that has a large snow ball installation, and a unique Fashion Zone that mashes up fashion, cosmetics, and marine life! These and more make visiting the aquarium worth it for everyone, whether you’re a solo visitor, couple, a family, or group of friends.

Here are some of the things that you can expect when you visit SEA Life Busan Aquarium:

1. Get up close with otters, penguins, sharks, and stingrays!

SEA LIFE Busan has a dreamy tunnel where you’ll get to see various species that live in harmony. From minuscule fish that swim collectively to large sharks that’ll give you the chills, you’ll feel like you’re part of Busan’s underwater world.

But aside from these displays, SEA LIFE Busan also has feeding performances that will let you see sharks, stingrays, otters, and penguins feed!
