Underwater World

Asia's most exciting tropical oceanarium, Underwater World Singapore, gives the visitor a fish-eye view of the mysteries of the sea. Its submerged tunnel, with a moving walkway, takes visitors past more than 2,500 marine creatures from 250 species. Not all of Underwater World's attractions are below the surface. The Turtle Pool is home to the endangered Green and Hawksbill turtles. Visitors will relish the contact with marine creatures such as starfish and sea cucumbers in the aptly named Touch Pool.

Be dazzled by the display of seahorses, weedy sea dragon which resembles the mythical Chinese dragon, the alien - like jellyfish, and the graceful dugong-Gracie. Visitors can explore more exhibits along the corridor or the Living Reef. Underwater World's latest exhibit - Singapore Wetlands, include a variety of freshwater and estuarine creatures such as the Oriental Small-Clawed Otter, Monitor Lizard, Mangrove Horseshoe Crab, Archerfish, Mud Crab, Mudskipper and sea Turtle. These creatures, commonly found in singapore and neighbouring countries are difficult to spot in the wild as they are either nocturnal or would hide at the first sight of man. Yet others are found in murky water or locations that are not easy to access. Now, Visitors can enjoy a close encounter with the extraordinary animals of the wetlands in air-conditioned comfort. Underwater World Singapore is the only aquarium in the world, outside Japan, where visitors are able to explore the wonders of the ocean at night and discover for themselves what really happens in the inky depths (Night Ocean comes alive daily from 6.45 pm)

Visitors can also dive with the sharks (shark and reef tanks) for SGD 95 which includes provision of diving gear. You have to be at least 12 years old and in good health. 5 sessions are available daily (each session approximately 30 minutes in water) (9.30am - 10.40am, 11.30am - 12.40pm, 1.30pm - 2.40pm, 3.30pm - 4.40pm and 5pm - 6.10pm). Advance booking is required, but if you are on Sentosa and wish to dive on the same day, please check on the availability with the staff at Underwater World . Organised dinners in the submerged tunnel or changing exhibit hall can be arranged for private functions and incentive travel groups.

At our "Meet the Dolphins" session at Dolphin Lagoon, visitors are able to watch the adorable pink dolphins perform their natural behaviours such as spyhop, tail -flapping, vocalizations, etc. Visitors may also get the opportunity to wade into the shallow waters to touch these wonderful and highly intelligent marine mammals. Dolphin Lagoon's latest program - Swim with the Dolphins, will allow you to work closely with a trainer and experience great human-dolphin interaction and play. At only SGD 100 per participant, Swim with the Dolphins is an exclusive program where only up to 2 participants are given the rare opportunity to get up close and personal with the lovely pink dolphins at each session. Participants will learn to build a relationship with the pink dolphins during the interaction and gain a greater appreciation about them. Participants should be aged 16 years and above.
