Leafy Sea Dragons

Leafy Sea Dragons

A quiet Sunday… the perfect day to venture out to Singapore’s SEA Aquarium at Sentosa. What Sentosa doesn’t tell you is that there are TWO sea aquariums — one near the Shangri La Hotel and one at the Maritime Museum. One is old, one is new, but both have some pretty incredible marine life on display. Here are a handful of photos from our outing today to the old aquarium — still worth visiting with fantastical leafy sea dragons (how cool are they?!), goliath groupers, gliding rays and a glass tunnel through the water that brings it all to you, up close and personal.

Even as new scuba divers, it was fun to see the sea life from the unique perspective of a glass tunnel through the water — drifting overhead, resting on the bottom and circulating around us in graceful arcs. But the very best part? We saw blacktip sharks, whitetip sharks, feeding sharks, sleeping sharks, so many amazing sharks… ALL with their fins ATTACHED. And THAT was infinitely more enjoyable than ANY bowl of soup.

    1. One of the coolest things about the tunnel is that half of the floor is stationary and the other half is a moving “track”. You can get on and off the moving portion to stop and take photos as the track moves you in a circle through the aquarium. So fun!
