Part of the vibrant Resorts Sentosa World on Sentosa Island, the South East Asia Aquarium is one of the largest aquariums of the world, with a total of 45 million litres of water that houses more than 800 species of marine animals. Until 2014, it was the largest aquarium in the world, possessing the world's largest viewing panel which gave visitors the impression of walking on the ocean floor.
The SEA Aquarium is home to over 100,000 sea creatures, spread across 10 zones and 49 habitats depicting marine ecology. The chief draw of this fascinating aquarium is the Open Ocean Tank, a massive structure containing almost 50,000 animals, including the charming manta rays and the exotic leopard sharks. This is the only aquarium in the world to house the giant oceanic manta ray. One will also come across exotic marine biodiversity such as the Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphin, scalloped hammerhead shark, nurse shark, giant moray eel, poison arrow frog, clownfish, sea nettle, giant Pacific octopus and the Japanese spider crab as they walk through this enchanting aquatic wonderland. Unique species like the guitarfish and the chambered nautilus are also found here. Apart from the impressive collection of marine wildlife seen at this giant aquarium, tourists also have the opportunity to dine at the adjoining Ocean restaurant by the famous iron chef Cat Cora or buy unique souvenirs from the gift shop found at the exit of the aquarium.
