I’ve been to a few big aquariums and thoroughly enjoyed them, but my experience at SeaQuest was one that really stands out.
When I first heard SeaQuest is an interactive aquarium, I wasn’t sure what that would actually mean. I was surprised to learn that people are encouraged to interact with a variety of animals. Feed the birds and fish, touch a starfish, swim with the manta rays- it’s such a unique and fun environment!
Each room at SeaQuest has a different theme, creating an exotic adventure with stops in the Amazon Rainforest, Shark Lagoon, Pirate Ship, and more. The design and layout of the aquarium are fabulous! I was really impressed by the details and atmosphere of the entire facility. There are photo spots everywhere you look.
Highlights of my visit to SeaQuest
Feeding the Stingrays
I was really surprised to find out we could actually feed the stingrays! How amazing to have these animals eat right out of my fingers!
This is one of my favorite spots! It was so fun to see the reactions of kids in this area- it’s truly magical! So many glowing fish!
Check out some of our favorite books about fish!
Is your child ready to learn to read? Or struggling to read?
I was so excited to try this! There were still a few nerves because I’ve never let fish have a go at my feet before, but it turns out I didn’t need to be worried at all.
The fish in the tanks are doctor fish, toothless feeders that suck the dead skin cells off your feet. It was a really different feeling- maybe a cross between soaking your feet in soda or, as they described it, pop rocks on your feet.
I loved that Dianne took the time to teach us about the fish and answer our questions about them. It was so interesting and a great final touch to the whole experience.
I would love to do this again!
Details I love
There are numerous places to sit down, which isn’t often the case in places like this. A spot to rest or watch the fish is such a practical and friendly feature.
A wonderful spot to sit and rest- and charge! When your batteries are low from all those awesome photos, you can take a break while you charge up for more.
I love the SeaQuest Gift Shop! It’s wonderful! It’s full of unique gifts, toys, and fun! The best part was the price. (Yes, you read that right!) Most gift shops are crazy expensive but the prices at SeaQuest are pleasantly affordable.
Since this is an interactive aquarium and there are animals to handle, there are also washing stations in EVERY room.
I was really impressed by the staff at SeaQuest! They’re all so friendly, knowledgeable, and went out of their way to help the patrons. They turned a fabulous facility into a very memorable experience.
Visit a mermaid
SeaQuest would be such a fun place to host an event! There’s an Event Room which would be really fun for a hosting birthday party, corporate event, reunion, and more.
Snorkel with the Stingrays
I definitely want to experience this! I watched others snorkeling and it looked amazing!
