SEA Aquarium Singapore is the world’s largest aquarium, with 49 marine habitats and over 100,000 sea creatures. Part of the Sentosa Island attractions, this state-of-the-art aquarium is a terrific journey through the world’s diverse marine habitats. Enter through the shark tunnel, with hammerheads, silvertip and sandbar sharks swimming above your head. Discover Nemo and watch squirming eels in the Bay of Bengal, marvel at the vivid reef fish of the Caribbean Sea, check out the fire shrimp and yellow boxfish of the Red Sea, spot the lobsters and the lionfish of the South China Sea, and crawl into a ‘cave’ for a very close peek at moray eels. Learn about the watery ecosystems of Lake Malawi, kelp forests, and coastal mangroves.
One of the most beautiful and unearthly exhibits is Ocean Journey, with eerily-lit jellyfish, monstrous spider crabs, and an enormous deep-sea octopus. The vast, 36m-long, 8.3m-high Open Ocean tank is an absolute show-stopper; it brings you face to face with stingrays, sharks, barracuda and other huge open water fish. Daily feedings and the Discovery Touch Pool are good times for kids. Try not to miss the second underwater tunnel, with fish darting all through the shipwreck, and learn about Asia’s Maritime Heritage at the on-location Maritime Experiential Museum.
