Aqua Planet Jeju boasts the largest aquarium facility among East Asian countries. Housing over 5,000 marine creatures from domestic regions and abroad, the Jeju branch is a highly recommended place to visit for all, especially for family visitors.
This museum offers versatile features, including an aquarium as the main attraction, in addition to Marine Science, Kids Planet and many more convenience facilities. A hands-on experience is also available where children can touch real-life sea animals and partake in many of the science and history classes that are on-going throughout the year.
Aqua Planet, which is run by the Hanhwa Hotels and Resorts group, has several branches located throughout Korea. However, one particular program that is only found at the Jeju branch is “Haenyeo’s Achim,” which directly translates into ‘the diving women’s morning’ in English. In this program, visitors are able to witness how Jeju haenyeo (female divers) catch various shellfish, seaweeds and more items underwater.
