This holidays, S.E.A. Aquarium invites you to experience a SEAASON of Rediscovery! You’ll get to re-discover the aquarium which has been transformed with specially designed light effects and fascinating soundscapes. 

Head to new zones like ‘Shipwrecked!’, where you’ll see how a ship’s end of service leads to the birth of a thriving new habitat. Gently touch sea animals like the epaulette shark and the knobbly sea star at the Discovery Pool and expand your knowledge. 

Make a trip to the habitat of brightly coloured poison arrow frogs to learn how the ocean is interlinked with the rainforest. 

Also, learn about Christmas-themed animals—the bright-and-beautiful angelfish, snowflake moray eels, pinecone fish, scarlet skunk cleaner shrimps that look just like candy canes, and more—while you’re at the aquarium!
