I always wanted to have a day trip to Sentosa, but it was too huge to cover everything within a day, so eventually planned a visit to Sentosa Express’s Beach Station area and bought 5-in-1 Sentosa Family Value Package – Adult for S$32 per pax. The package Cover admission tickets for Underwater World, Dolphin Lagoon, Luge Ride, Sky Ride & Song of the Sea.

Underwater World wasn’t so big, we finish checking out the place in around an hour. The building and facilities were old, wasn’t much variety of sea creature in it. But I found it wasn’t too bad for 1st timer like us, we have had an enjoyable and relaxing afternoon wandering around. Feeding sessions were available, too bad we missed it. You might want to check on the schedule and plan ahead to prevent disappointment.My favourite place in Underwater World, Jelly World!
Dolphin Lagoon was located next to Underwater World, just a 2mins walk. We reach Dolphin Lagoon 10mins before the Dolphins and Fur Seals show was started, but already full house. You can find for the show schedule here.
The dolphins and seals were so cute and well trained, able perform many tasks and moves. Overall, we kind of like the show. But it was so hot outdoor, especially when it was so crowded at the afternoon.
The day was too hot, we decided to have something cold after the show, before heading to our next destination, Skyline Luge!
