The rebranded oceanarium will be more than three times its current size.
As part of Resorts World Sentosa’s (RWS) mega expansion plans, the S.E.A. Aquarium will be rebranded as Singapore Oceanarium (SGO) by 2025 and will be expanded to more than three times its current size.
The rebranded SGO will possibly launch in 2024 and will include additional exhibits of prehistoric marine life and deep-sea creatures that follow the history of evolution, exploration, and how mankind has to embrace conservation.
Using state-of-the-art digital innovation and interactive technology, SGO will offer an immersive experience of ocean history and marine biology in its three new zones: Evolution and Extinction, Exploration and Deep Ocean, and Conservation.
The Evolution and Extinction zone will invite guests to walk on a simulated ocean floor and experience prehistoric marine life from cradle to grave.
As for the Exploration and Deep Ocean zone, visitors can embark on deep-sea exploration as they view life-like holographic images of rare ocean creatures.
You will be able to interact with the local intertidal ecosystem through digital mapping, as well as get up close and personal with live marine creatures at a borderless discovery pool, and learn more about famous Asian ocean navigators.
Finally, at the Conservation zone, there will be special installations highlighting the threats to marine biodiversity to inspire people to play their part to protect them.
In the time leading up to SGO’s opening, the current S.E.A. Aquarium will still be open to the public.
Dolphin Island will also continue to be part of the new SGO and contribute to local marine conservation efforts.
