S.E.A Aquarium is home to more than 100,00 marine animals, the world's largest acrylic viewing panel and 49 different habitats, covering marine life from the Persian Gulf to the Red Sea. Before reaching the actual aquarium, visitors pass through a Maritime Experiential Museum where they can learn the history of sea exploration and trading in Asia. There is a life-sized replica of Admiral Zheng He's Treasure Ship, an assortment of goods and materials that were traded through their respective ages and a mini exhibition of the wares lost and found at sea.
Among the many different habitats are some 800 species, divided by geography and compatible species type. Its 10 zones provide interesting showcases, with an underwater tunnel Shark Sea and an open ocean panoramic encounter. The Ocean Dome offers panoramic 80 degree views of this Open Ocean habitat with many fish swirling around like confetti in snow globes. The Discovery Zone is home to a floor aquarium and a creature petting pool for kids (and curious adults) to touch the starfish and assortment of sea creatures.
You are welcome to come face-to-face with bottle nose dolphins, even given the opportunity to touch and ride them if you're on the smaller, younger side. You can find Nemo and Dory in the Bay of Bengal and be both hypnotised but somewhat unnerved by the long and fluid tentacles of the jelly fish in the Ocean Journey Zone. Watch as the sharks and sting rays swim above you in the underwater tunnel and view the scuba divers swim with the fish in the viewing panel. It's a fantastic sight to see and you'll learn a little marine history on the way.
