Halloween is just round the corner. It is time for the spooks to resurface on this day. This year Spooks takes to the high seas and invade RWS SEA Aquarium (SEAA). Initially I was worried if the theme would spook the Wackies , however when when the boys heard that they are on the way to a a Spooky adventure, they actually run their hands in glee. That did get me a little worried.
Fret not, this is not a scary or and gory review. The Spooky Seas edition is a family friendly Halloween experience and it is certified Kids Friendly for Halloween.
This is not our first visit to SEAA. In fact this is our third trip to the aquarium. In the past, we took the free and easy route, exploring the grounds on our own. For this trip, we embarked on a 3 hour long VIP Tour to explore the Spooky Seas of RWS SEA Aquarium and beyond. The VIP tour includes a guide who shared the hidden secrets of SEAA. As part of the package, we get to explore the nooks and crannies of SEAA, visiting 3 back-of-house areas that are exclusive to this tour.

Back to the VIP Tour. Being in a tour, other than in depth explanations of the exhibits which we love, we had priority queue for the Discovery Touch Pool. This is a great perk since queues for it are rather long when we visited. For those intend on taking a tour, do opt for the 9 am tour as you will get into the aquarium before the crowds and thus enjoy the exclusivity that comes with the absence of crowds.
Other perks include 3 back-of -house tours and feeding of the animals. Due to the exclusive nature of the tour, we could not take any photos. However the experiences of watching Mantra Ray feedings, exploring the top of Open Ocean Habitat tank, witnessing the breeding of Sea Jellies and Corals would be things to check off our to-do list during this tour.
In addition, there was a back of house tour at Dolphin Island. It was new for us as we had not been to this part of Marine Life Park. Do note that Dolphin interactions are not part of the tour. Nonetheless It was amazing the friendly Dolphins swimming next to us when we got close. During the short span there, we felt the love and happiness of both trainers and Dolphins alike. Regardless, we do acknowledge the different views on the Dolphins' presence in RWS and we respect them.
