Underwater World

Situated on Sentosa, Underwater World Singapore is a dream haven that showcases the awe-inspiring beauty of a whole different world beneath the seas. Visitors can expect a fun-filled experience through interactive activities and interesting exhibits, before they arrive at the highlight: A spectacular 83 metre-long tunnel that houses majestic rays, fearsome sharks and great shoals of other fishes.

After Underwater World Singapore, visitors can move on to Dolphin Lagoon where they get to watch charming pink dolphins demonstrate their natural abilities such as spy-hopping, tail-walking and vocalization.

Fish Reflexology (located next to Underwater World Singapore)
Underwater World Singapore also offers a unique activity that enable visitors to unwind and have fun at the same time. At Fish Reflexology, participants get to enjoy a unique pedicure session done by spa fish, followed by a good massage by a qualified foot reflexologist.

Many marine species, such as the blacktip and whitetip sharks, eagle rays and big-belly seahorses, breed and thrive in the Underwater World. Underwater World plays an integral role in conservation efforts such as rescuing the endangered turtle species and spearheading a coral relocation project in the Southern Islands.

Worlds First Oceanarium RFID System
As part of Underwater World Singapores (UWS) continuing efforts to introduce more exciting and interactive oceanarium experiences to our visitors, UWS has catalyzed the integration of aquatic science and technology to introduce the Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) System making us the worlds first oceanarium to do so.

All the seven species of fishes in our Living Fossils tank are embedded with RFID tags. The RFID tag implanted in each fish will enable it to be sensed by antennas that are fitted on the front of the exhibition tank. When the fish swims within detectable range, the RFID tag sends a signal to the antenna, which then relays a signal to a touch screen computer. Visitors will also be able to navigate through all the detailed information about the fish including its name, diet and characteristics by clicking on the appropriate icons on the computer screen.
