STRAIT OF KARIMATA AND JAVA SEA

Venture through the fascinating world beneath the Strait of Karimata, located on the lower-eastern side of Sumatra, and be astounded by a monumental shipwreck with a splintered hull that has evolved into a thriving marine habitat.

See how squadrons of pompano, threadfin trevally and batfish and other marine animals such as goliath grouper and Napoleon wrasse seek refuge within and near the shipwreck as they cruise through the waters of the Java Sea.

From once carrying treasures across the ocean, to now harbouring the ocean’s marine life treasures, shipwrecks continue to shape the world beneath the oceans and seas.

STRAIT OF MALACCA & ANDAMAN SEA

Go on a wondrous underwater journey through the Strait of Malacca and the Andaman Sea where fascinating ‘magnified’ encounters with marine life await.

Walk across a floor of glass and watch the predators and other ocean denizens swim right beneath your feet! Further ahead, explore the waters of Singapore and seagrass habitats of Malacca, home to lively leopard and blue flasher wrasses.

Treat your children and the child in you to an interactive learning experience as our Mariner shares lessons about the knobbly sea star, pencil sea urchin, sea cucumber and more at our Discovery Touch Pool.

BAY OF BENGAL & LACCADIVE SEA

Uncover the mysteries of the Sundarbans Mangrove, home to a myriad of endangered plants and animals found along the coast of the Bay of Bengal. Discover mangrove inhabitants such as mudskippers, spotted scats, archerfish and silver batfish that use the extensive network of mangrove tree roots as nesting and nursery areas.

Around the corner, spy on curious spotted garden eels popping in and out of their sand burrows and “find Nemo” as well as reef lobsters, white-rayed antenna gobies, long-nose hawkfish and other jewels of the Coral Reef.

Further along lies the Patch Reef of Brain Corals and majestic Staghorn Corals, leading to a reef drop similar to those found in the Laccadive Sea, teeming with unique fish species such as the queen angelfish, yellowface angelfish, imperator angelfish and others.

OCEAN JOURNEYS

As you make your way further into the ocean, come face-to-face with our indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins. Learn the surprising facts about these speedy swimmers as they enthrall you with their underwater grace and prowess.

Nearby, immerse yourself in the magical and mesmerising world of synchronised fish! Few marine scenes are more intriguing and hypnotic than a school of fish swimming in unison. In an instant, the school changes direction with none of the fish colliding into one another.

Check out the cool marine life in the Cold Water habitats such as giant spider crab, chambered nautilus and other unique species. Recharge your energy with the electrifying pulsating dances of the translucent sea jelly species like the trailing long-tentacled lion’s mane sea jelly, the captivating neon blue sea jelly and the larger-than-life moon sea jelly

OPEN OCEAN

o other place brings you closer to a more diverse collection of marine life than the Open Ocean experience. Let your imagination swim as a panoramic marine vista engulfs you. This magical realm is home to gentle giants of the sea including the leopard shark, goliath grouper, saw fish, mahi mahi and a never-before-seen squadron of magnificent manta rays. Watch poetry in motion as glittering schools of scads, fusiliers and rainbow runners create a continuous dance in perfect unison.

ARABIAN GULF AND ARABIAN SEA

The warm waters of the Arabian Sea and the Arabian Gulf make up one of the largest marine sanctuaries in the world. Viewed from the rugged and harsh Rocky Shore of the Gulf, you will encounter blue-spotted stingray and be mesmerised by schools of glistening sweeper and silver batfish. You also will delight in meeting rocky shore inhabitants like the sally lightfoot crab, the spider-like eight-armed seastar and other unusual semi-aquatic creatures.

Discover the captivating underwater hanging gardens – both the iridescent Soft Coral Garden and the Overhanging Coral Reef where curious reef fish like the broomtail wrasse, purple tang and yellowband swim and frolic amongst these colourful living colonies.

RED SEA

Often called the “rainforest of the sea”, the Red Sea is home to a diverse range of soft and hard corals because of its warm waters and high salt content. The Coral Reef habitat offers glimpses of a vast array of marine life in one of the most beautiful ecosystems in the world. Watch in wonder as warm-water fish like fairy basslet, yellow boxfish, orange striped triggerfish, fire shrimp and long-horned cowfish swim amongst sea fans and coral colonies.

EAST AFRICA

As you travel across the Great Lakes of East Africa, be awestruck by the tremendous diversity of fish, many of which evolved within the lakes and are found nowhere else in the world. The two freshwater lake habitats of Africa, Lake Victoria and Lake Tanganyika, are home to an astounding variety of fish adorned in all colours of the rainbow. Some of the native african cichlids include the frontosa, kribensis, and mbuna, which share their home with the predatory african tigerfish armed with dagger-shaped, interlocking teeth. They are often found near the lake bed and hunt in fierce, voracious packs. It is no wonder that they are considered the piranhas of Africa!

SOUTH CHINA SEA

The colourful bright stripes on the body and fins of the lionfish serve as a warning to all, as they swim by confidently displaying their poisonous outstretched barbs. Try to spot a variety of lobsters hiding amongst the rocks and rubble surrounding the ship’s anchor as squirrelfish and soldierfish hide under the reef overhangs.

The moray eel habitat is not to be missed. Kids can crawl into a “cave” and pop their heads through a dome for up-close views of the moray eels in their niches and crevices.

SHARK SEAS

Showcasing the majestic predators of the marine realm, Shark Seas is one awe-inspiring habitat that you will remember forever. Be transported right into an exciting world of various shark species. There are many that you will see for the very first time together with endangered species such as the scalloped hammerhead shark, the powerful and aggressive silvertip shark, and the sandbar shark – one of the largest coastal sharks in the world. Marvel at the strength and grace of these remarkable creatures that have inhabited the earth for over 420 million years!
