The Sentosa Marine Life Park is a marine theme park, housing under its roof several marine / nautical themed attractions, including the S.E.A. Aquarium, currently the world's largest oceanarium. Besides the S.E.A. Aquarium, the Marine Life Park also showcases The Maritime Experiential Museum, the Maritime Archaeology Gallery, the Exploration Centre, The Souk Exhibit, and the Typhoon Theatre.

As the highlight of the Marine Life Park, the S.E.A. Aquarium naturally takes up the largest floor space. It's a journey into the undersea kingdom, starting with the eye-opening Shipwreck Exhibit, where fish swim by in floor-to-ceiling aquariums. The Karimata Strait & Java Sea Exhibit and Man Eating Sharks Exhibit features undersea tunnels, where marine life swim by all around you, making for great photos. But it seems very similar in concept to other nautical themed attractions in Sentosa.

I felt the Marine Life Park stood out for its gargantuan Ocean Journey & Ocean Dome Exhibit, dwafing all people with its size, and making us feel like we were on the ocean floor. The Dolphin Island was another highlight, where divers interacted with dolphins for public viewing. And the Sea Jellies Exhibit was a psychedelic display of colour. Over 800 species of marine life are showcased here, in 10 zones further divided into 49 habitats.

At The Maritime Experiential Museum in Marine Life Park, a showcase of exhibits trace the different cultures, countries, and people that plied the maritime silk route of old. The exhibits are nicely setup, and spread out to give a awe-inspiring look as decor. But many of the openly displayed items were also fake, made from plastic or cheap metal to prevent theft. The Souk Exhibit is eye-catching, and the little Bao Chuan Show is somewhat interesting, but beyond that, this area has nothing much to look at.

If you're planning a visit to the Marine Life Park, do note that admission fees cost SGD $38, and allocate between 1 to 3 hours for viewing.
