SEA Aquarium Singapore ticket price

SEA Aquarium Singapore ticket prices are SGD 41 (13 – 59 years), SGD 30 (4 – 12 years), and SGD 30 (60 years and over).

I suggest buying the ticket through Klook only, the price is much cheaper, for adults only SGD 36children and seniors aged 60 years and over only SGD 26 only!

Isn’t that great save SGD 5 per person. Then you will get a ticket on line so no need to queue to buy tickets on the spot.

Experience visiting SEA Aquarium

On second thought it was my first time visiting a giant aquarium. Usually when you see fish you like it right away snorkeling not in the sea, hehe.

But yes, while you still can’t traveling in this year and I happen to be stuck Also in Singapore, it’s better to just explore domestic tourism.

SEA Aquarium Singaporewhich stands for South East Asia Aquarium, is the second largest oceanarium in the world which holds more than 100,000 fish.

When you enter the SEA Aquarium, in the first part there is a tunnel with translucent glass so you can see various fish passing by.

Really good! There are manta rays, sharks, other types of fish whose names I don’t even know. Feeling again divingtry to stop for a moment on the edge and look up.

Different zones with characteristic oceans around the world

Each zone is adapted to their native habitat which is spread all over the world. In total there are 10 zones, including the seas around Indonesia such as the Java Sea, South China Sea, the Malacca Strait.

You know that Indonesia is located in the world’s coral triangle, underwater biodiversity around Indonesia is very important for the balance of the ecosystem that we should protect.

There are also zones with fish species in the Andaman Sea, Red Sea, Bay of Bengal, and others.

Watching colorful jellyfish

My favorite part is the jellyfish! There are four different aquariums featuring different types of jellyfish as well. The lighting in the aquarium changed colors as if the jellyfish had changed color.

Did you know that jellyfish are 90% water? Some have long tentacles, some are cute like mushrooms, similar to the stingless jellyfish I saw on Lake Mariona, Togean Island.

Jellyfish also vary in size and live at different depths as well. Even according to research, jellyfish have existed from ancient times.

It was like being sucked into a different world when I watched the jellyfish floating in the water. Sometimes the color that should be clear turns red, green, blue, purple. It’s like looking at the stars on a dark night.

Watching dolphins playing

You can also find animals that are known to have intelligent brains at the SEA Aquarium. The movement is agile around the pool.

Every now and then the dolphins play with each other, chasing each other and spinning in the water. These mammals are also very friendly. Occasionally they approach the glass as if greeting the visitors.

If you want to play with these dolphins directly, there are sessions or packages or special sessions that you can take with an additional SGD 15 ticket.

Open Ocean Tank, a giant aquarium!

Here it is, a giant aquarium that holds perhaps thousands of species of fish! You could say the main highlight of SEA Aquarium Singapore.

Manta rays gracefully swam, small fish scattered everywhere. The hammer shark swam nonchalantly. At the open ocean tank you can try the unique experience of eating at the Ocean Restaurant restaurant with a direct view of this giant tank.

Guess the fish

In addition to entertaining, a vacation to the SEA Aquarium can increase knowledge too. There are a lot of fish that I didn’t even know about before. It’s also fun to guess with family or friends.

FYI, the first time I saw seahorses in person, it turned out that they were really mini. Guess what, the photo below is what kind of fish.

See sharks up close

At the last part before the exit there is another tunnel, but this one is dominated by sharks! Yep, you can see this predatory fish up close without fear of being bitten.

There is one type of shark, I don’t even know what it’s called, but it’s white and very long, it just sits in a corner and doesn’t move. There is also one large shark that looks aged with its sharp teeth.

I didn’t think that this aquarium was this big. Right now I’m writing on my blog, I just found out that SEA Aquarium is the largest aquarium in Southeast Asia, even the second in the world after China.

If you are on vacation in Singapore and plan to go to Sentosa, you can visit this aquarium as well as Universal Studios.

Because I’ve been to Universal Studios before, after SEA Aquarium I took the “Sentosa Express” to the Beach Station stop and sat at the beach club there.

There are several beaches that you can visit on Sentosa Island, such as Siloso Beach or Tanjong Beach. The beach is just so simple, if you compare it to the beaches in Bali, you may still lose.

You can also rent a bicycle to get around Sentosa Island or try the route trekking provided, as I did on Pulau Ubin. Sentosa Island is not too big! I’m satisfied playing there all day!

That’s my experience vacation to SEA Aquarium Singapore, complete with how to get there and also the price of the entrance ticket. Hopefully the information and photos can inspire you to visit this tourist spot!
