SeaBase is among Future World’s most ambitious offerings, housed in a 200-foot-diameter, 27-foot-deep main tank containing fish, marine mammals, and crustaceans in a simulation of an ocean ecosystem. Visitors can watch the activity through 8-inch-thick windows below the surface (including some at the Coral Reef restaurant). Upon entering, you’re directed to the loading area for The Seas with Nemo & Friends (see next profile), an attraction that conveys you via a plexiglass tunnel through SeaBase’s main tank. You disembark at SeaBase Alpha, where you can enjoy the other attractions. (If the wait for Nemo & Friends is too long, head straight for the exhibits by going through the pavilion’s exit, around back, and to the left of the main entrance.)
About two-thirds of the main aquarium is home to reef species, including sharks, rays, and a number of fish that you’ve seen in quiet repose on your dinner plate. The other third, separated by an inconspicuous divider, houses bottlenose dolphins and sea turtles. As you face the main aquarium, the most glare-free viewing windows for the dolphins are on the ground floor to the left by the escalators. For the reef species, it’s the same floor on the right by the escalators. Stay as long as you like.
Other highlights include a an exhibit which showcases species featured in Pixar's Finding Nemo and a manatee tank. Turtle Talk with Crush is in a theater on the ground floor and is a charming discussion with the eponymous sea turtle from Finding Nemo.
Tour of Epcot's Seas Pavilion
Experience the ride and Turtle Talk by lunchtime before the park gets crowded, saving the excellent exhibits for later. If you see a cast member standing near the tank’s windows, ask them what kind of fish you’re looking at and whether they have names.
SeaBase is usually less crowded during the evening, making it a perfect time to have large swaths of the aquarium to yourself.
