The Curaçao Sea Aquarium offers everyone the opportunity to come into contact with the beauty of the Caribbean coral reefs and a wide variety of its inhabitants. The main goal of the Curaçao Sea Aquarium is, next to entertain, to educate both visitors from abroad as well as the local population about marine life around the island of Curaçao and about the importance of our marine ecosystems.

Conducting and facilitating marine biological research is also a significant part of the Curaçao Sea Aquarium. The Curaçao Sea Aquarium keeps all marine animals and creatures in conditions that closely resemble their natural circumstances and does this by making use of the natural sources on our island as much as possible.
