Sea Life Busan Aquarium, Busan Reviews

  • Good place to spend a few hours in the Busan area. I have never been to an aquarium that was entirely underground. Yet it didnโ€™t fell that way while walking thought it. Most of the tanks/habits were well maintained. They also do a great deal of animal rescue and if possible return them to the sea.

  • had an amazing time in Busan and the aquarium was one of the best experiences. recommend for small children but still all ages can thoroughly enjoy. the 'mermaid' show was very cute too and was impressed by the incredible preformers. staff is so helpful if you ever need tips or advice.

  • Very educational and you have the English option. The shows are amazing and a good thing to do while in the area of Busan. Please visit this amazing place as you will learn a lot. Also could be a possible good area for a date, as it doesn't require much talking. Good luck

  • Not a super big aquarium but a lot bigger than expected. Also the location under the beach was quite different. Some nice tanks with some pretty fish, rays, sharks, etc. Would have like some more coral display or something like that. We went after 1600 which gets you a discount but later in the day a lot of the animals are done for the day like the otters and pinguรฏns.

  • Great place to take the kids. Sharks. Octopuses. Jellyfish. Otters. Penguins. And of course, fish ๐Ÿ˜‹
