More than 100,000 animals from 1,000 different species make Singapore's S.E.A. Aquarium their home. The largest oceanarium in the world is made up of zones that represent almost 50 marine habitats. Visit the glass-panelled Open Ocean habitat to feel as though you’re standing on the ocean floor.The Basics
Highlights of the 19-acre (8-hectare) oceanarium include the Shark Seas habitat, home to more than 200 sharks including the endangered hammerhead and silvertop, and the world’s largest collection of manta rays. To get closer to marine life, book an overnight at the aquarium, upgrade to explore the facilities with a marine biologist guide on a VIP tour, or walk on the ocean floor on a Sea Trek experience.
S.E.A. Aquarium can get busy; a skip-the-line admission ticket and round-trip transfer package saves time waiting in line and lets you skip the stress of taking public transport to the aquarium. Alternatively, save money with a ticket combo that also grants access to Universal Studios Singapore.Things to Know Before You Go
