A giant octopus with 96 tentacles and a large ocean sunfish are the highlight, along with traditional native female divers offering feeding demonstrations.

  • Feel relaxed as soon as I entered the location. New there are animals on the water, as well as fish and birds. Walrus touch events and fun even for adults.

  • Entrance is quite small compared to the Toba Aquarium, the penguins just got. Acrylic (? ) Of the approaches is seen underwater Penguin parts become transparent and the finger, and Penguin come by at full speed to parepare mouth and fingers to eat the desperately cute that it was. Sunfish was looking forward to another one is gone except for the ocean Sunfish Aquarium, the Aquarium also insipid, what was a drab. And the air smells like chemicals, I was here.
