SEA Aquarium, Singapore Overview

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.

More on SEA Aquarium

There are 49 aquatic habitats at the SEA Aquarium, spread across the ten zones, which represent the marine ecology found across the planet. These zones are named Ocean Journey, Strait of Karimata and Java Sea, Strait of Malacca and Andaman Sea, Bay of Bengal and Laccadive Sea, Open Ocean, Persian Gulf and Arabian Sea, Red Sea, East Africa, South China Sea, and Shark Seas.

Apart from the standard entrance, there are two other ways one can make the most out of their visit to the SEA Aquarium.

VIP Tour: The VIP tour involves a private tour of the aquarium that lasts around 3 hours. Exclusive information like the origins of the Manta rays and the dietary requirements of sharks are explored in this tour, giving tourists a much deeper understanding of life underwater. A special route is provided for this tour, granting a much closer look at the animals and their habitats. This tour occurs before the official opening of the aquarium, providing people with a more personalised experience away from the crowds.
Timings: 9:00 AM, 11:00 AM, 1:00 PM, 3:00 PM

Ocean Dreams: The Ocean Dreams experience is an extraordinary experience where visitors are allowed to spend the night at the museum, falling asleep right beside the fish. The tour begins after the last guest has left, involving a guided tour of the aquarium. Visitors also have the privilege of watching the animals being cared for and fed.
