The moment you step into S.E.A. Aquarium Singapore, you’ll feel like you’ve entered an underwater universe. S.E.A. Aquarium Singapore features more than 100,000 marine animals from over 1,000 species and is a one-stop attraction to observe the ocean world. As you walk through the iconic underwater tunnel into the aquarium, don’t forget to capture a shot of the sharks swimming overhead.
Moreover, over 100 sharks from 12 different species call the aquarium home. This includes the endangered scalloped hammerhead shark, silvertip shark, and sandbar shark. If you prefer a more thrilling encounter, S.E.A. Aquarium Singapore offers a Shark Dive experience. The activity allows you to swim alongside the apex predators of the sea for a thrilling and immersive experience.
Although one of the world’s largest live coral displays with over 100 species of hard coral and 20 species of soft corals can be found in the aquarium, the Coral Garden contains a grand total of zero live corals. The massive cylindrical tank that spans two stories mimics a reef world with more than 5,000 fishes across over 100 species.
The aquarium decided to display artificial corals as the reef-eating fishes in the habitat would have feasted on all the live corals. Fun fact: Did you know that corals are not plants, but marine animals made up of colonies of polyps?
Open Ocean Habitat
The Open Ocean Habitat is the main feature of the aquarium. You’ll be drawn in by the stunning view that is the result of a single acrylic viewing panel! We hear it’s the largest viewing panel in the world. At 12 metres deep, the habitat contains 8 million litres of water (or 7 Olympic-sized pools).
Due to its sheer size, the aquarium is actually a PADI-certified dive venue. You can even pick up diving or do an open ocean dive with Manta rays, groupers, and 40,000 other sea creatures.
Giant Moray Eels
Often mistaken for sea snakes due to their uncanny resemblance, Giant Moray Eels are actually fish. Instead of scales, they have a slimy layer mucus coating that protects them from rough surfaces. They mostly hide in dark crevices and lie in wait for prey.
Sea Jellies Gallery
The Sea Jellies Gallery is undoubtedly the most captivating exhibit in S.E.A. Aquarium Singapore. Visitors to the gallery find themselves fixated by the graceful movement of the translucent creatures. The exhibit is specially equipped with colour-changing lights to illustrate this. You’re welcome to take as many photos as you want, as long as the flash is off.
Despite the illusion, the wobbly sea jellies in S.E.A. Aquarium Singapore are unable to change their colours. These sea jellies do not have bones, brains, teeth, blood or fins and mainly feed on plankton and tiny fish. To date, six species have been bred at the aquarium, including the moon sea jelly and white spotted sea jelly.

Interactive experiences at the Discovery Pool
Here at the Discovery Pool, you’ll get to touch an epaulette shark and a knobbly sea star. The knobbly sea star is native to our waters and identified by the knobs on top of its body that resemble chocolate chips
There are washbasins situated before and after the discovery pool for you to clean your hands. Pro-tip: Observe the animals at their most active during feeding time, which is around noon.
