Aquaria KLCC: Malaysia’s Oceanarium You Must Visit

The state-of-the-art oceanarium (ocean plus aquarium) inside Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, the Aquaria KLCC is positioned just below the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre close to the famous Petronas Twin Towers. Unfolding across a widespread area of 60,000 sq ft., this wondrous attraction is house to 5,000 land and aquatic creatures. It is not only a tourist sightseeing attraction in Kuala Lumpur but also an informative centre for tourists. Aquaria KLCC proposes a multitude of activities which you will enjoy to do here.

Things To Do

One of the prime attractions of Aquaria KLCC is the endless display of a wide species of aquatic creatures. You will be astonished to see some of the rare varieties of sharks and fishes here. Not only do you get to observe them live but also you can feed them and associate with them. There are set feeding hours for that as well. If you are touring Kuala Lumpur with kids, make sure to take the Aquaria KLCC tour for an engaging experience. The marvellous display showcases some of the precious aquatic species such as tiger sharks, sea turtles, sea snakes, flying rays, coral fish, seahorses and much more.

The Tunnel In Aquaria KLCC

One of the attractions of Aquaria KLCC is an enormous tank with a 90m walk-along tunnel with a travelling travelator in its heart. Inside you’ll be encircled by sand tiger sharks, large stingrays and more. You can take a pause from staring at Nemo and his team, as you go to The Stream which plays host to the large water rat and the lovable Asian small-clawed otter. Meantime, the Jewels of the Jungle segment is home to a family of reptiles, amphibians and insects including the green snake, coatimundi, tarantula and several others; also be sure to check out the display showing the life cycle of butterflies.

Diving With Sharks

The most enjoyable parts of Aquaria KLCC might really be when you’re feeling a slight bit lost – either actually, given the absolute size of this place, or figuratively, as you try to absorb as much as you can about the oftentimes overlooked multifaceted deep-sea environment. Though the aquaria delights in simple ways, thrill-lovers are also well provisioned for – they can swim close with tiger sharks, stingrays and much more as the aquarium has a Diving with Sharks program. Even though guests have to confirm a liability disclaimer form in order to get into the tanks, it’s a safe atmosphere as the sharks have lived in Aquaria KLCC for more than five years now and are tame. Those who don’t have diving licenses can register for the Cage Rage programme where guests take the dive into the tank inside the confines of an immersed cage.
