One of the largest marine and freshwater aquaria in South East Asia. The 34,701 square foot oceanarium greets visitors with a gigantic 15-meter long walk-through tunnel consisting of 500,000 liter seawater that houses many big fishes and sea creatures.
What to Expect?
The concept and theme of Underwater World Langkawi are geared towards Knowledge, Education and Entertainment. It is built to raise awareness on the importance of conserving our precious aquatic life forms, thus creating understanding of the deep and inseparable bond between man and nature.
Other attractions include the Freshwater Fish Section, the Seashell Display, the Koi Pond, the Reptilian Section and the Coral Reef Section.
The oceanarium is located adjacent to a shopping centre and the Neptune Café. Visitors are thus provided with a one-stop shopping, eating and entertainment package, all of which are available within one area. A new building (with 60,000 sq. ft built-up area) which displays Tropical Rainforest, Temperate and Sub-Antarctic Ecosystems, and info theatre with a 200-seating capacity will be opened to the public in early 2005.
The Sub-Antarctic Ecosystem Display includes a spectacular “penguinarium” with an underwater tunnel for visitors to view swimming penguins. Awards Recieved:- Largest Aquaria in Malaysia, 1st Breeding Rockhopper Penguins in Captivity & 1st Wedding in Penguin Tank By Malaysia Book of Records.

We didn’t have high expectation of this place and the tickets came complimentary with our stay… but I couldn’t have been more wrong! Despite being open for many years and yes, it’s showing it’s age in some areas. This places is packed with animals. From little critters to fish as big as me! There are even birds walking freely around in one section, a mini waterfall and penguins! I was truly blown away at the variety of animals enclosed here. At the end of your journey, you’ll enter a duty free chocolate store, how convenient! This is a great place to bring kids because there’s so much to see and do.

Great place for couples and family. I wish to go back again soon. I personally recommend people to buy ticket earlier from Shop**. I got my tickets from Shope* at RM33 for 1 adult. If you buy walk in tickets, it will cost RM43 for 1 adult. There’s a RM10 difference, so please make wise decision ??

I recently had the opportunity to explore the underwater world in Langkawi and it was a cool experience. The water was clear and the coral reefs were truly beautiful. It was amazing to see so many different types of fish swimming around in their natural habitat and i had the opportunity to see the the team feeding the penguins . I highly recommend visiting this place especially if you have kids

Had a great time here! Was amazed by the variety of marine life that we were able to see here! The place had informative write ups about each species as well. Spent about 1 hour here. Time well spent!
