Novel Underwater Exploration at Grand Aquarium
Ocean Park has recently launched an all-new Grand Aquarium Exploration programme on 6 July*, allowing ocean-loving guests to enjoy a wonderful view of marine life up-close from beneath the sea surface. Accompanied by a qualified diver, participants can snorkel among colorful coral reefs and have a chance to see tropical marine species such as the Shy Butterflyfish, Painted Triggerfish, Blue-stripped Snapper as well as different types of fusilier and angelfish.

Through the spectacle of clear waters in the aquarium, guests can identify and learn about the characteristics of different reef fish in a truly unique experience, encompassing important lessons of marine conservation. A tour to the back-of-house coral facility is included so guests can learn how the Park maintains optimum living conditions for the corals, which would in turn inspire them to protect corals in the wild.

Besides, a Behind the Scenes tour is available at the Grand Aquarium for guests to find out how aquarists take care of the thousands of fish in the facility and prepare nourishing meals for them.

* Separate fees apply for the Grand Aquarium Exploration and Grand Aquarium Behind the Scenes tours. For details and advanced bookings, please visit:
