From 28 May to 26 June 2022, young ocean enthusiasts can also sign up for the Junior Ocean Protector Camp to learn about marine biodiversity through fun and enriching activities during their mid-year school holidays.
A Colourless Ocean (27 May – 16 August 2022)
This World Oceans Day, S.E.A. Aquarium abounds with activities that promote sustainable living which helps keep the oceans healthy. Discover the importance and wonders of the vibrant seas with A Colourless Ocean at S.E.A. Aquarium, and how everyone can help to protect the oceans and the marine life which inhabits the oceans.
With a roster of programmes, activities and a pledge wall, guests will be treated to an educational and inspiring journey that seeks to encourage love and protection for the oceans before they turn colourless due to the detrimental effects of climate change.
Immerse in an ethereal art installation titled OBNOVA at the Shipwreck Gallery. Created by local award-winning multi-disciplinary artist, Rizman Putra, OBNOVA gives guests a glimpse of how an ideal future would look like with a restored and flourishing oceanscape.
Interact with marine debris and learn about the impact of microplastics at the Ayer Ayer Shore Table, an interactive table sculpture presented in partnership with social enterprise, The Ayer Ayer Project.
From 28 May till 14 June, the Ayer Ayer Shore Table confronts audiences with the extent of marine debris in our oceans, aiming to inspire guests to take action and participate in beach clean-ups. Representing the coastlines of Singapore and Malaysia, the Ayer Ayer Shore Table is embedded with microplastics collected from both countries’ shorelines. Guests can sift through the sandy Shore Table to collect the microplastics, akin to a coastal clean-up.
The microplastics collected from the Shore Table can be used to create colourful mosaic artworks that participants can bring home. Alternatively, guests may also pledge to reduce plastic consumption and refuse single-use plastics by contributing their mosaic artworks to the Pledge Wall at the end of their visit to Ocean Fest.
A special Ocean Fest Bundle Deal at S$48 per adult and S$38 per child is available during the June school holidays. It includes one S.E.A. Aquarium admission ticket, one S$5 meal voucher, and one S$5 retail voucher for adults or an educational worksheet for children. For more information on S.E.A.

Those who are keen to learn more about the infinite possibilities of upcycling can attend a hands-on Upcycling Workshop by social enterprise, Terra SG, from Fridays to Sundays from 28 May to 26 June. Participants will learn how to create pouches and lamps with everyday items such as paper and plastic cartons, and learn how upcycling helps to prevent pollution and keep the oceans clean.
The workshops will be held at S.E.A. Aquarium on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, with five sessions a day. The Upcycling Workshop Bundle Deal (S$58 per adult and S$48 per child) includes one S.E.A.

Participation is free and capped at 50 slots per session. Volunteers will experience for themselves the real threat of marine debris in the waters of Singapore through the physical removal of human-created waste on the coastlines.
