Ocean Lens – A Unique View at the Coral Reefs

The Curaçao Sea Aquarium launched ‘Ocean Lens Curaçao’ an innovative underwater observatory located at the SubStation Curaçao. Visitors to the SubStation can walk down stairs for approximately 17 feet or 5.2 meters to arrive at the depth of the island’s reef drop-off where they can enter a chamber with a large observation window referred to as the Ocean Lens. Visitors have the opportunity to observe changes in marine life between the two drastically different depths while remaining in the spa­cious airconditioned comfort of the Ocean Lens. Surrounded by this unique deep-water ecosystem, visitors can lay down in front of the lens to experience an abundance of colorful fish, coral reefs, coral conservation trees and possibly even see the Sea Aquarium’s research submarine, the CuraSub, descending into the deep ocean.
