Pink Dolphins at Underwater World Singapore
We have blogged about the 13 Sentosa Attractions with Sentosa Play Pass and also Sentosa 4D Magix. There is also one of the top attractions in Singapore shall not be missed in Sentosa, the Underwater World Singapore. Opened since 1991, Underwater World Singapore has more than 2,500 marine animals of 250 species from different regions of the world.
Personally, I have visited a number of oceanariums which include Underwater World Langkawi, Aquaria KLCC, Melbourne Aquarium, Buengchawark Underwater Sea Paradise and Phuket Aquarium. To be frank, each oceanarium has its own identity so we wouldn’t mind visiting more oceanariums in our upcoming trips.
Getting to Underwater World Singapore is easy. Just take the blue line bus from the Beach Station, it is FREE OF CHARGE.
The first thing we saw after we went in is the” touch pool” after we got our tickets. Visitors are allowed to touch the sea animal gently at the touch pool.
Rachel went to touch a few stingrays.
Then, there is also a section called the “Feed the Sharks” near the entrance.
Next we went to the Dolphin Lagoon for the Meet the Dolphins and Fur Seals Session! It took us quite a while to get our seating as there were lots of visitors that afternoon.
The main attractions here are the pink dolphin, there were a few of them.
The trainers played with them for a while and did a few tricks with them.
The crowd loves them and the dolphin session was around 10-15 minutes session.
Right after the dolphin performance was the fur seals performance.
We went back to the oceanarium to start our visit. The Meet the Dolphins and Fur Seals Session should be at the end of the visit, we did it another way around somehow.
There is a huge glass cylinder with small marine dwellers that caught our attention. However, what’s next is more impressive.
We went on the 83 metre long moving travelator (the conveyor belt) into a tunnel of underwater journey. Can you see the Manta Ray?
It did not take long for the scenery to “wow” us. The numbers of the different ocean dwellers were amazing. The way they decorated the underwater journey here and the use of different lightings colours makes it visually spectacular.
I’ve heard there is a dugong there by the name of Gracie. We missed Gracie but we definitely did not miss the sharks. There were so many of them!
I am not a marine dweller expert but the the fish with the “horn” looks like a fish unicorn!
The jelly fishes are harmful but they do look translucent and vibrant here.
This is one of the attractions we did in Sentosa Island. Gosh, it is hard to believe a small island like this has so many places to visit. The Underwater World Singapore is a fun learning place for adults, kids or family.
This is actually our first time seeing pink dolphins, we wanted to see them in Bali but we didn’t have the time. Pink dolphins are rare and there is only a handful of oceanariums have them.
