Here I’ve come face-to-face with the dugong and about thousands of fishes at the Underwater World oceanarium. But that’s jumping the gun. At the entrance, the first stop is the touch pool where there are several fishes, turtles and small sharks waiting for visitors to pet them. Then small and medium-size aquariums come into view in the first room. Schools of fishes of various colors swam inside their own little worlds. Then at the far end room is the Angel Fish, which is a tiny glowing marine species. Below is where crabs of different sizes and shapes are displayed. Further below, the clown fishes and jellyfishes are glowing in round-shaped aquariums. Then, we rode the travelator that took us in an acrylic tunnel as if we are in the bottom of the ocean. It was the best part of the Sentosa experience as I watched sharks and large fishes swim over me and stingrays gliding at my side.
We paid SGD19.50 which included an admission to the Dolphin Lagoon. Unfortunately, with the bad weather, we weren’t able to visit the dolphins. It would have been a lot more fun if the sun was out that day. Apart from that, the Dolphin Lagoon is a bit far from Underwater World, which is near Fort Siloso, and the night was slowly creeping in. We still have to catch the Musical Fountain that night and have to hop into the bus before it leaves us stranded in the island.
Nevertheless, the fishes kept us in good company that day despite the rains. Try to visit www.underwaterworld.com.sg and see the wonders it offers.
