S.E.A. Aquarium at RWS Marine Life Park

We finally got to check out the S.E.A. Aquarium™, world’s largest aquarium at Resort World Marine Life Park™ during the March School Holidays. The three boys we brought there had a fantastic time and came back home with their Marine Life fascination meter  surge way up.

We took the Sentosa Express from Vivo City to the Waterfront Station.

S.E.A Aquarium Entrance

The building is prominent enough and we are pleasantly surprised when we realize that the aquarium ticket include access to the Maritime Experiential Museum (we need to walk pass part of the museum exhibits and intriguing interactive games before we reach the aquarium portion).

The Aquarium is divided into zones according to the habitats of the sea creatures so it is a learning experience about not just the sea creature it self but habitats that they live in.

We start with  The Strait of Karimata and everyone is immediately mesmerized by the Shipwreck habitat.

The kids soon discovers the interactive display on learning about the sea creature they see every area. They love learningabout the names of their favorite Fishes.

Interactive and Educational

The Discovery Touch Pool

The Discovery Touch pool where kids can touch and feel star fish and sea urchins is extremely popular with kids. There is a small cleaning area for washing hands after that so feel free to enjoy the experience.

Mangrove Forest

The aquatic life varies  as the water become more and more shallow nearer to the shore.

We had intended to follow the zone chart on the aquarium map, but the kids quickly find a stairs to another area of the aquarium and we ended up in Zone 8, East Africa next.

East Africa

We are memorized by the colorful and pretty fishes in an Africa Lake.

The Open Ocean gallery is truly a sight to behold.

The giant tank with a plane-wreak in the background and many manta rays, leopard shark, Goliath groupers swimming freely. We can stayed in the section for more than an hour, taking the time to soak in the beauty of the marine creatures as we have our lunch from the snack bar outside the restaurant.

The Ocean Dome offers a panoramic 180 degree view of the creatures in the ocean habitat.

There are informative posters and charts on the fishes behind the gallery and a popular souvenir generating machine that the kids love.

The kids are especially interested in the graphic about sea creatures around a Seamount.

Ocean Journey

The Ocean Journey or zone 4 is where the many jelly fishes and the only octopus are found. That’s where the dolphins should be too, but for now there is nice interactive displays about them.

Intriguing Jellyfishes

The boys are fascinated by the Sea Nettle, Acromitus, and Upside down jelly fishes.

Kids have fun on the pole for the Stilt Fisher men.

Moray Eel Area

The Moray Eel is another fascinating creature. There is a tunnel where kids can enter through to observe the eels.

Go into the tunnel to see the Moray Eels.

The Shark Tank

The Shark Tank is one of the main attraction at the aquarium and it is not hard to see why. We get to see lots of sharks in the tunnel.

Conclusion

We love the experience and feel that this makes an extremely interesting place for the kids. If we were to go there again (Which we most likely will) We will probably take more time to enjoy the Maritime museum exhibits. It will also be a good idea to bring some food along. There are two snack bars and an upscale restaurant in the building. The variety is kind of limited with just sandwiches and muffins and potato chips though.
