What People Are Saying About S.E.A Aquarium Singapore
Underwater galore and much more!
My experience at S.E.A Aquarium was nothing short of wonderful. The relaxing feel I got while gazing into the underwater world was a unique overwhelming experience. Staring into the live of the deep blue leaves you speechless. The different habitats just make the experience so much more real, it actually feels like you’re in a different part of the world. The restaurant ‘Ocean’ is an absolute wonder and a must visit too!
Mind blowing views, incredible experience :)
I didn’t realize that a shark was that big. They look tiny in movies as compared to real life but equally frightening. Special thanks to Headout for ensuring a smooth booking and no troubles with the tickets. Me friends and I skipped past the queue at the entrance and just walked into the aquarium. We learnt so much about the magnificent life underwater as we peered through the clear pane and marvelled at these fascinating creatures. Thank god for the glass stopping me from becoming a shark-tale.
