Signature Show: Orca Performance
The 2-ton orca, king of the ocean, delivers a dynamic show in the Ocean Stadium. The show performed together in perfect synchronicity with the trainer, who also goes into the water, is pretty impressive. It delivers a water-splashing super entertainment with the great Pacific Ocean in the back.
Dolphin Show by the Ocean's Idol Dolphin
Dolphins, the ocean's classic superstars, deliver a remarkable synchronized performance in the Surf Stadium. The crowd cheers as the bottlenose dolphins and pacific white-sided dolphins swiftly repeat their high-jumps and spin-jumps.
Tropical Island: A Recreation of the Tropical Coral Reef
This exhibit is a rare one within the whole world, as it recreates the ecosystem of a tropical reef in the six different areas including the ocean, rocks, beach and coral. You feel as if you're floating in the southern ocean as you look at the colorful tropical fish such as damselfish, butterfly fish, cute little clown fish, sharks, rays and sea turtles.
Interactive Petting Experience
The aquarium has so many programs and events that allow you to get close to your idols from the ocean, like pet a dolphin or take a photo with a smiling sea lion. You can also watch the feeding time, when the animals are most active, or watch the pelicans being taken out for a walk.
Dine while looking at orcas in the restaurant, Ocean. Many of the seats in this popular restaurant have a view of the orca tank through glass windows. It offers a wide variety of dishes using seafood and vegetables from Chiba.
