The Underwater World Singapore and Dolphin Lagoon at Sentosa offers visitors with a myriad of unique experiences where one can get up close and personal with selected marine life through the Touch Pool where you can touch stingrays as they swim by. There is also an open pool of baby sharks nearby but note the warning signs and the extra glass layer protection around the pool – don’t put your hands in there :-).
The Underwater World Singapore showcases a variety of corals, fascinating fishes through a 83-meter long transparent acrylic tunnel (travelator) which passes through a huge aquarium. You can choose to walk through this tunnel or be moved around the tunnel through the slow-moving travelator to enjoy a three dimensional view of marine life all around you in a natural environment.
Another exciting part of the Underwater World Singapore has to be its seal and dolphin performances conducted every few hours by the Dolphin Lagoon (just a 2-minute walk away from the Underwater World aquarium – check out the video for a glimpse of what you can expect.
