Simply breathtaking!
On the local-front, I personally thinks that Sentosa Underwater World is equally good too. Cheers.

Awesome indeed. But I wonder how the whale feels about it, being cooped up in that enclosure. I would feel stressed :) .

Is it connected to the open ocean?

I'm suddenly being reminded of the movie where killer sharks
were highly intelligent after being used for mega-brain-experiments
done by humans, and they actually plotted their escape together... yup
the few elite ones at the facility and started eating the humans one by one
by one.... *gulp*... :sweat: ... and it all began with harmless viewing like da
one posted here... *double gulp*... I may be a swimmer but one can NEVER
outswim the mighty shark... As for whales... :idea: ... I dun fancy being in
their gut... with all other food that they have swallowed... just like Dory &
Marlin (Daddy Nemo).

the only reason why we don't see larger whales, is because someone has not build a bigger tank Yet :(
what we can do is educate our child that fish-tank (no matter big or small) is not whale's habitat :pray:

For IR Sentosa, with or without whales, the experience would be just as splendid :love:
hope I don't antagonize some GreenPeace folks :oops:

This is a shark, not a whale. I don't think there is any whale in captivity at any aquarium.
