Underwater World Pattaya allows visitors to experience the underwater world’s beauty, colors, and variety without diving into the ocean.
It is a fun experience for both adu-lts and children to see the many species of colorful fish and corals housed in the fish tanks and to walk through the aquarium’s over 100-meter-long glass tunnel, which allows visitors to get up close and personal with marine animals such as sharks, stingrays, and many species of colorful tropical fish.
The Ray Pool, located near the entrance, has fish such as starfish, bamboo sharks, blue spotted rays, and archer fish. A second pool is home to sea stars, cucumbers, and bamboo sharks.
Taking care of the Koi fish
Children will enjoy feeding the white and orange Koi fish in the pond.
Meet the green sea turtle, a massive sea turtle that can travel thousands of kilometers and live for up to 80 years. The Cylinder Tank is home to fish like the vividly colored blood parrot cichlid.
Tropical fish and corals in vibrant colors
Several tanks and aquariums host various corals and tropical fish, such as angelfish, a colorful kind of fish with a round and flat body that helps them hide in small areas.
The butterfly fish, with its vivid yellow and orange colors, dwells on tropical ocean coral reefs, like the lionfish, a magnificent tropical fish with red and white stripes and enormous, spiky fin rays.
Other tanks house moray eels, scorpion fish, sea horses, tang fish with vivid colors such as yellow and blue, clownfish, and stunning corals. Don’t miss the enormous crab and the vivacious Asian little-clawed otters, the world’s smallest otter species.
The glass tunnel allows you to walk through the sea
The glass tunnel at Underwater World Pattaya is a highlight. Walking through the 105-meter-long acrylic glass tunnel gives guests the impression that they are walking on the ocean floor, surrounded by hundreds of fish of various types, including sharks, stingrays, and enormous groupers. Because the fish swim right next to you and overhead, you can view them from every angle.
Coral Reef zone, Open Ocean zone, and Giant of Siam zone
The tunnel is divided into three zones: the Coral Reef zone, the Open Ocean zone, and the Giant of Siam zone.
In the Coral Reef zone, you’ll observe a variety of beautiful corals as well as shoals of giant trevally.
In the Open Ocean zone, encounter sea creatures such as black tip reef sharks, eagle rays, black-botched rays, fat nurse sharks, and shovel-nose rays.
The Giant of Siam zone contains an artificial ship wreck serving as a marine life haven. This zone is home to animals such as the arapaima, a giant freshwater fish that may grow to be 15 feet long.
Staff at the aquarium take photos of guests in the glass tunnel, which may be purchased at the shop near the exit.
Underwater World’s part with tanks containing several species of jellyfish and illumination in various hues is rather unusual.
Many species exist, ranging in size from millimeters to several meters, such as the lion’s mane jellyfish, whose body can grow to several meters in length and tentacles up to 37 meters long. The eternal jellyfish is a kind of jellyfish that can regenerate itself, making it biologically immortal.
