S.E.A Aquarium - Singapore - Review

The S.E.A (South East Asia) Aquarium located within Resorts World Sentosa is the world's largest aquarium. Home to more than 100,000 marine animals of over 1,000 species, across 50 different habitats, each one as fascinating as the next. The Aquarium spans more than 45 million litres of water.

The S.E.A Aquarium takes guests through 10 different aquarium zones, covering the vast oceans of the planet through some 49 habitats. From the Strait of Karimata and Java Sea zone which includes the Shipwreck at the entrance of the Aquarium to The Strait of Malacca and the Andaman Sea zone, Red Sea zone to Shark Seas zone on your way out to name a few. The Aquarium covers all seas!

The Discovery Touch Pool was a fun way to touch and learn about sea stars, sea cucumbers and other fascinating marine invertebrates. Highly recommended and included in entry fee.

There's lots of little nooks and crannies around the aquarium for kids to observe different fish and species. Like the giant moray eels' little tunnel kids can walk through and observe the eels from there. Or the 'close up' spots on some of the aquarium exhibits and the educational section.

Our favourite zones include the East Africa zone which showcases the amazing life forms that the freshwater lake ecosystems have evolved to occupy unique niches, and are found nowhere else on earth.

The Open Ocean Habitat zone showcases the Ocean Gallery which is the centrepiece of the Aquarium where visitors can see through the world’s largest aquarium viewing panel that measures a staggering 36m wide, 8.3m tall and 70cm thick. The gallery contains more than 18 million litres of water and home to more than 50,000 marine animals.
