5 reasons to visit Underwater World Sentosa

[ Media Invite & Tickets giveaway ]

Mention Aquarium in Sentosa (or Singapore) and RWS SEA Aquarium comes to mind. However, we will give you 5 reasons why “UnderWater World Sentosa” (UWS) is worth visiting with your family during the June holidays.

– Visitors can touch and interact with stingrays (real ones, not those BBQ sambal variants)
– Watch pink dolphins and sealion perform, and these marine dudes love the attention!
– Kids can learn about eco-system and marine creatures
– SEA aquarium is always crowded, but UWS allows visitors to slowly soak in the sights and exhibits.
– During the June school holidays, promotional price of $19.90pax (usual price $29) comes with a buffet

01. Dolphin Lagoon performance (Daily 11am, 2pm, 4pm and 5.45pm)
Although it is named Dolphin Lagoon, do not forget the sealions. Glenda loves to grab your attention.

Daddy found out from the trainer how to differentiate between fish and marine mammals (eg dolphins and whales). Hint, mammals flip their fins up and down, and fishes flip left and right.

Kids are impressed with the acrobatic and friendly dolphins and sealions. They can juggle balls and hoops effortlessly!

02. Ray of Fun and Touch pool
Kids are encouraged to touch the stingrays and star fishes, but try not to lift them out of the water. The stingrays’ barb has been removed so it is very safe, and the shark will not bite πŸ™‚

Try touching the smooth jelly-like skin of the giant Leopard ray. Watch them glide gracefully over the water. It is always surreal to touch a stingray, these magnificent creatures are normally seen during open water dives.

03. Tunnel and Travelator (take your own sweet time)
As UWS is less crowded (compared to SEA Aquarium), kids decided to sit down on the travelator and enjoy the sight! Some might even try to walk backward on the “treadmill” πŸ™‚

Look at the overhead stingrays and sharks, so magnificent and carefree.

04. Education and interaction
Remember the “River Monsters” episodes with Jeremy Wade. Some of the monsters and giants from South America are right in front of us and easily measure 2m in length!

Arapaima, Pacu, Catfish seems to live in harmony.

Do not litter or throw rubbish into our waterways, as they will flow into reservoir or open sea, polluting our ecosystems. Kids are reminded to Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.

We have not seen the underside of a sea urchin before, the roe is a delicacy in Korea. Boon Wee dreaming about sashimi spider-crab.

Interaction and knowledge, kids had fun learning about animal and fish anatomy. They get to understand how predators and preys evolve and try to outsmart each other.

Quite a few old turtles spotted. There is an underpass to watch the turtles underwater.
We reminded the kids to keep their hands off the pond.

On the way home, we found the usual peacocks and babies, and a new attraction. The lifts allow visitors to reach the top, I am curious about the view from the top.
