Ocean World is located along the beautiful North Coast near Yeliu (Yeliou), a scenic area with abundant natural resources. There is a plan for a performance auditorium with a capacity of over 3,000. There are startling, high-jumping water presentations held at irregular intervals, cute and smart dolphins, mischievous sea lions and other spectacular performances!
What to explore at Yehliu Ocean World?
In the Sea Animal Exhibition Hall, there are the original forms of many sea ecological environments. The Sea Animal Museum also stores samples of many precious sea animals and employs simple language to explain to everyone basic information about the sea.
There is also a transparent undersea tunnel of about 100 meters long, in which you can view the sea creatures “at home.” Being in the tunnel is just like being in the legendary blue crystal Dragon Palace in Chinese mythology. This is really a wonderful place of amusement, knowledge, and education.
Both a museum and scenic attraction, the Geopark offers extensive information on the natural geological processes that created these rock formations. Many formations have been given names representing their shapes, such as the “Mushroom Rocks”, “Sea Candles”, and “Fairy Shoe”. The most iconic rock is the “Queen's Head”, which, true to any noble monarch, only reveals its majesty when viewed from the proper angle.

“Exciting performance for kids” We went there when visiting Yehliu Geopark. We managed to watch the 10:30am performance. Admission was only NTD 450 per adult. My 4 years old son was really happy. The exciting sea lion and dolphin show coupled with the heart throbbing high dive show made the overall performance a thumb-up. Bryan managed to get closer photo with the sea lion. The performance took about 1 hr plus. Then, we went to the souvernir shop where the goods were sold at reasonable price. We got no time to check out the aquarium but there was fish and octopus feeding show stated on the leaflets
