Oceanarium : The World of Adventure, Fun and Excitement

Did you think the ocean is just about fish and boats?
Come to oceanarium, learn what floats, what lives, and how we need
and use the ocean every day.

The term oceanarium can either mean a marine mammal park or a large-scale aquarium presenting an ocean habitat with marine animals, especially large ocean dwellers (e.g. sharks).
