Sea World Ancol, Jakarta
Sea World is one of the attraction in ANCOL theme park situated in Teluk Jakarta. During our visit in Dec 2009, we visited the cultural hand craft site, children park, 4D show and the Sea World. There are sealion, dolphines and white whale performance. The visitors queue up for their turns to watch the show and all seats are full during the show.
Sea World is an Aquarium which is situated next to Ocean Dream Samudra. Unique features from this aquarium that I`ve never seen before in any Aquarium I`ve been too is a touch pool. They one section with Sea Turtles and even Sharks that you can touch when they swim past. There is information boards at the tanks on how to touch them correctly. They also have tunnel here through there Main Pool. Nice place to take your family after visiting Ocean Dream Samudra.

This Gigantic aquarium exhibits over 5,000 types of tropical species from Indonesia’s beautiful oceans and beyond. Sea world is the biggest sea-aquarium in the Far East. Stroll through “Freshwater World” or have a journey to the bottom of the sea at “Micro World”. The “Touch Pool” allow you to feel the marine life. Movies about the under water world are regularly screened. Sea world is located in Ancol Amusement Park and open daily from 09:00 am 09:00 pm.
Sea World of Anchol is where you can find quite many marine life. My favorite spot is the Shark Aquarium. Do check out the feeding time from the reception counter. Entrance fee is quite reasonable, IDR25,000. Do come on weekdays to avoid massive crowd on weekends.
