Ho Ho Ho… it’s that time of the year again where we expect to see a white-bearded guy in a red suit dive amongst the fishes at the S.E.A. Aquarium!
Visitors are greeted with this “Merry Fishmas” sign at the entrance of the building.
Two Christmas trees can be found at the aquarium – one located at the entrance/exit of the aquarium…
…and the other (similar to last year’s) is found submerged in water and the fish seem to enjoy it a lot!
Visitors can also take pictures with this sleigh, which has an aquatic interpretation.
Staff at the aquarium have Santa hats as an added accessory during this season.
Last year, we saw the introduction of “Scuba Santa” and he appears again this year, but now with his Elf!
I must say that the Elf is quite a poser!
Time & Venue:
▸ 11am – 11.30am Shipwreck Habitat
▸ 2pm – 2.30pm Open Ocean Habitat
These two divers are extremely popular with the crowds!
There is also an interesting Merry Fishmas Adventure Trail (similar to a treasure hunt) which the kids can participate in – it’s an educational tour that will help you to learn more about the marine animals.
A copy of the treasure hunt booklet can be picked up at the entry gantry of the Maritime Experiential Museum.
What you’ll need to do is to hunt down 9 underwater presents which “Manta Claus” has hidden in the aquarium, study the fish, read the displays or ask any of the friendly staff to find the answers at each station. Then, scratch what you think the correct answer is.
These are some of the presents which can be found as part of the hunt:
I have to say that it is not easy to find the answers and you could be spending many hours at the aquarium but it’s a good rainy day activity. ^_^
Merry Fishmas programmes and activities are available until 4th January 2015.
