Upon arriving to Curacao we couldn’t help but fall in love with it…it was so beautiful!
While we were only there for a short visit we left knowing 2 things:
1. We wanted to come back and explore the island more…it is that beautiful!
2. We had just experienced one of the coolest things ever!!!!
The cool experience we are referring to is the Animal Encounter at the Curaçao Sea Aquarium. It was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!
We were able to interact with the animals in a way that we never thought we would ever do! We fed…
They are so big!
Six Foot Sharks
Yes! We actually fed sharks. Even with the glass in between you, seeing their teeth was crazy! (but in the good way). The staff was even nice enough to get the kiddos actual shark teeth from the bottom of their tank. They thought that was super cool!
These sting rays had no problem going right on top of you and they were big! I was cracking up because they were all over me. Quite different than the other sting ray encounters I had done.
They weren’t shy about getting the food from us….we just had to be careful that the birds wouldn’t come by to steal their food.
We got to touch their GIANT grouper “Herbie”
Do you see how big this grouper is? It was bigger than my husband and he’s a big guy.
Don’t worry, No dive certifications is needed. Plus, if someone in your group doesn’t want to participate (of for the kiddos that are to young), they can observe it all from their under water observatory boat.
We’ll never forget the amazing time we had at Curaçao Sea Aquarium doing the Animal Encounter because it truly is an experience like no other! Maybe we’ll do it again, the next time we are in Curacao.
