A Whole New World of Marine Life

Aqua Planet 63

아쿠아플라넷 63

Originally known as Sea World 63, this aquarium was the first public aquarium to open in Korea all the way back in 1985. However, as newer aquariums popped up in Seoul, the age of its facilities began to show, and the aquarium underwent massive renovations to improve both the living conditions of its marine creatures and the comfort and experience of its visitors, reopening as Aqua Planet 63 in July 2016. Aqua Planet 63 now holds over 50,000 creatures from over 400 different species, as well as a variety of underwater plants and corals from all over the world. The Aquarium was also used as a shooting location for the famous drama "Legend of the Blue Sea" and has since become a favorite date spot amongst young couples.

 

Aqua Planet aims to show guests a variety of marine ecosystems not seen in everyday life, teach the value of marine culture, and promote ecosystem preservation through its aquarium. Important steps were taken during the renovations to shake off people’s perceptions of the aquarium as antiquated and lacking space for its marine wildlife. Larger tanks were built and the aquarium now has a section closed off to visitors that helps breed rare species. A wide variety of creatures are displayed in these tanks, most notably entire sections dedicated to the aquarium’s sea otters, penguins, and seals.

 

Besides its precious marine creatures, Aqua Planet 63 is also home to some very unique and beautiful sea plants and colorful coral reefs from around the world. A number of programs are also put on for guests throughout the day, such as a mermaid show that features a pair of synchronized swimmers and a seal show in which a highly-trained aquarist swims with the seals in unison. There are also plenty of opportunities to catch aquarium staff feeding the fish, penguins, and otters.
