Jakarta Aquarium presents the concept of a holiday in nature, displaying the beauty and diversity of Indonesian waters. We take you on a journey from soothing to romantic to adventure. Something for everyone. Jakarta Aquarium has received the award of Trip Advisor`s Certificate Excellence Destination 2018 and Indonesia Travel Tourism Awards (ITTA) as Indonesian Leading Conservation Destination 2017 – 2018 / 2018 – 2019.
Jakarta Aquarium is known for our range of underwater animals and renowned for its many varied zones which transport our guests into different regions and continents. It has an area of 7,200 m2 with 3598 animals and 354 species. The Aquarium is much more than just large tanks for fish. It offers opportunities for all to discover the underwater world and see aquatic creatures more closely, and to learn about the habits of all species with the support of our full trained guest associates. It is an environment focused on the education of its patrons, especially children. It promotes awareness on conservation and preservation and we also work with many schools, by supporting their syllabus in any marine life activities.
Jakarta Aquarium invites everyone to find out more about the wildlife and marine biota of Indonesia. To open the minds of the younger generations especially the children, to teach them the importance of nature and their part to play in the conservation of our planet. We do this with the support of such initiatives as “LAUTKU BERSIH” which is a programme to encourage people to explore the wealth of Indonesia and to support the preservation of our waters in Indonesia, and the rest of the world.
