The last time we visited the S.E.A. Aquarium was to officiate its opening with the Prime Minister, Lee Hsien Long in 2012.
This year, we were invited to experience TWO brand new activities at the aquarium during the Christmas Season: The Great Christmas Trail and the appearance of Scuba Santa & Elf !
We went on a Wednesday to avoid the crowds, but it was packed with people. It seems that the reputation of S.E.A. Aquarium as the world’s largest aquarium precedes it, ,making it a major attraction for both tourists and locals.
The Great Christmas Trail
Want to inspire your kids’ love for learning and discovery? Let them take part in The Great Christmas Trail where they’ll get to hunt down 9 underwater presents and pick up incredible facts about schooling fish along the way.
What can we say? We LOVE Dolphins! We could stay and watch these graceful creatures swim for hours and hours. The dolphins were very accommodating and would swim close to the glass panel to say “hi” to us.
The Aquarium provided some lovely backdrop to take pictures. Remember to turn off your flash so that there is no reflection against the glass when you capture your shot.
Santa Claus & Elf Appearances
This festive season, Santa and his elf are suiting up in a different way – with mask and fins! Come catch Scuba Santa and Elf make their bubbly appearance underwater. Don’t forget your cameras and selfie sticks!
Time & Venue:
▸ 11am — 11.30am ⇒ Shipwreck Habitat
▸ 2pm — 2.30pm ⇒ Open Ocean Habitat
We waited for two hours, but unfortunately Scuba Santa and Elf did not show. We were told that there was a rain storm with thunder that was impeding Santa from showing up.
