Boo! Who says Halloween has to be scary? This September to November, take your little wizards, mermaids, magicians, and princesses to trick or treat in the depths of the Deep Boo Sea at S.E.A. Aquarium, where there are kid- and family-friendly activities galore that’ll bring the magic of Halloween to life under the sea.
Be the first to check out the undersea neighbourhoods decked out in delightfully spooky Halloween decorations (which make great backdrops for photos, by the way), slay a fun-filled Trick-or-Treat Trail, wave hello to the skeleton divers, uncover spooky secrets and quirky facts about marine animals, and more. We dived into the Deep Boo Sea to bring you what kids of all ages can look forward to at S.E.A. Aquarium this Halloween season…
Hop on a Fun-filled Trick-or-Treat Trail
Follow spooky ambassador Count Mobula to explore the first undersea neighbourhood, meet the marine animals that live in these habitats, and uncover all the skeletons in their closets. For instance, we discovered that ‘Mobula’ refers to a genus of rays commonly known as Devil Rays — how apt!
There are also several quirky stops on the trail. Take part in fun activities and solve tricky puzzles in Join-The-Dots, Word Search, and Words Unscramble games. Fill up your complimentary Scare-arium Fun Sheet with the answers along the way. When you’re done, it folds up into a little haunted house you can take home.
Of course, it’s not Halloween without candy. For the ‘treat’ part of the deal, each kid is equipped with a complimentary pumpkin bucket. See how many delicious treats you can collect from the Candy Ambassadors you meet.
Catch Skeleton Divers on their Deep Boo Dives
Keep a lookout for the Skeleton Divers swimming past and say “howl you doin’?” to them at the vast Open Ocean Habitat. They will be in action at 4.15pm on S.E.A. Aquarium’s opening days. You can watch them trick-or-treat with marine life on Tuesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays, at the same timing.
While it’s fun to wave to them and see them wave back, it’s also cool to know that they do more than just entertain visitors in skelly diving gear. They are actually aquarists whose main job is ensuring that their finned friends are healthy, and the aquarium is functioning well.
One of our favourite experiences was watching the majestic reef manta rays interact with the Skeleton Divers. If you’re as lucky as we were, you might catch Manja, Mako, and Mika forming a manta train to swim loops around them. It was equal parts mesmerising and cute.
Meet and Greet with Mystical Mantas
Before you leave the Deep Boo Sea, strike fa-boo-lous poses with the S.E.A. Aquarium’s manta mascots. Yup, modelled after the real-life mantas, Manja, Mako, or Mika will be decked in Halloween costume for special meet-and-greet sessions. These take place at 1.30pm, 3pm, and 4pm on every weekend and public holiday from now to 8 November.
We got to meet Mika (he’s the one with a black stripe on his underside) during the media preview and discovered that besides being really cute and friendly, he’s also quite a talented dancer! Mums and dads, here’s your little ones’ chance to become the next TikTok sensation while boogieing with S.E.A. Aquarium’s manta mascots at Deep Boo Sea!
If under the sea is where you want to be this Halloween, there’s really no better place to be at than the Deep Boo Sea at S.E.A. Aquarium. Sea you there!
