Welcome to the largest oceanarium in the world! Part of the 8-hectare Marine Life Park complex, the S.E.A. Aquarium houses more than 100,000 animals of 800 species in 45,000,000 liters of water. The aquarium comprises 10 zones with 49 habitats; the Strait of Karimata & Java Sea, the Strait of Malacca & Andaman Sea, the Bay of Bengal & Laccadive Sea, the Persian Gulf & Arabian Sea and the Shark Seas, to name a few, are all represented at S.E.A. Aquarium. Popular species include the bottlenose dolphin, the scalloped hammerhead shark, the goliath grouper, the Japanese spider crab as well as relatively uncommonly exhibited species such as the guitarfish and the chambered nautilus.
The most popular feature of the aquarium, outside its outstanding selection of marine fauna, is its awe-inspiring viewing panel. Officially the world's largest, at 36-meter (118 feet) wide and 8.3-meter (27 feet) tall, it gives visitors the feeling of literally standing on the ocean floor. Other notable features include the world’s largest collection of manta rays (which includes the only giant oceanic manta ray in captivity) and fine specimens of jellyfishes.
The aquarium is located on Santosa Island in Singapore, 10 minutes from Singapore’s Central Business District. It can be reached via train (North-East line or Circle line to Harbour Front station and then Santosa Express until Waterfront station), bus (routes 65, 80, 93, 188, 855, 10, 30, 97, 100, 131, 143, 145 or 166 to Vivo City and then bus RWS8) or by cable car (Imbiah station for Santosa Express).
