For those humans who are lamentably landlocked, Sea Life Arizona Aquarium offers a hands-on, educational aquatic experience filled with up-close animal viewings, fishy feeding frenzies, and interactive encounters. Seafaring adventure awaits across the multifaceted aquarium map, which charts a knowledge-saturated journey through 26,000 square feet of saltwater and freshwater chambers that house more than 5,000 aqua-inhalers, ranging from sharks to stingrays to green-tentacled octopus gardeners. Patrons can embrace full liquid immersion while staying dry in the walk-through ocean tunnel, whose transparent walls give visitors a 360-degree view of the marine world around them. Back above the surface, tactile learners can dip their paws into special touch tanks to interact with tidal denizens and discover the proper way to shake hands with a starfish.

Aquarium-goers can soak up the latest ocean gossip at daily talk and feeding times, including shark, stingray, and seahorse feedings, and discover how to help guard aquatic abodes with afternoon conservation talks. The interactive, five-tank Claws exhibit also showcases the world’s largest species of crabs, whose fearsome pincers can crush coconuts, but only to make piña coladas for their friends.

Sea Life Arizona Aquarium

The scenes inside Sea Life's tanks are like a Where's Waldo? book come to life, except the protagonists within the underwater tableau aren't awkwardly dressed like candy canes. Thousands of fish swirl through the waters, and you could easily spend hours picking out specific species.

Seahorses, on the other hand, swim in open view. So does other marine life—especially once you enter the ocean tunnel, which simulates the experience of walking across the ocean floor. Blacktip reef sharks roam overhead and flash their menacing teeth at the cownose stingrays, who appear to smile back.

The aquarium's more interactive attractions explain what makes undersea life so appealing. At the touchpool, for instance, education hosts explain the lives of coastal creatures, letting visitors touch everything in the exhibit, including sea stars and hermit crabs.

Even though Sea Life spans 20 displays and thousands of sea creatures, only so many creatures can call the aquarium home. To help marine life outside its walls, Sea Life runs and participates in many different conservation campaigns and programs. Sea Life aquarium rescues seals, finds permanent homes for disabled sea turtles, and breeds seahorses to protect these endangered species from extinction.

I was delighted to see such a professional Aquarium in our neighborhood Mall. It is not the huge Disneyland version but provided a wonderful selection of sea life to see, courteous folks along the way and a fun slide at the end. My 6 year old grandson and 2 almost 3 year old granddaughters delighted in every display and especially loved stairs and nooks in addition to the wonderful fish. I will bring them again in the future. I do have one suggestion: The toys as rewards for the children completing the paperwork, should be age appropriate. They were small rubber critters that the younger children chewed on till I rescued them and discarded them. Pencils were of no interest. Perhaps some inexpensive soft furry fish?? I do recommend the experience.

This visit was perfect for a little girl who had never been to an aquarium before. She was delighted and so was I sharing it with her. It was just right size and duration for her and our time together. All fish seemed well and thriving, displayed well, so it was a delightful day!
