Something Fun to do in Arizona - Arizona Sea Life Aquarium Review

Dive into SEA LIFE Arizona Aquarium and be wowed by the many strange, beautiful and fascinating creatures of the deep. As you journey through an amazing underwater world, prepare for astonishingly close views of everything from sea stars to sharks, rays and a rescued green sea turtle! To get any closer you'll have to get wet!

We encourage guests to engage with marine life through stunning displays of real creatures and exciting experiences, creating a desire to learn more.

We show our guests how amazing marine creatures are but also what threatens them, building empathy for both them and their plight.

We suggest changes to behavior and offer guests opportunities to help us protect marine creatures for generations to come.

My Review:
If you're looking for something fun to do in Arizona I highly suggest you check out Arizona Sea Life Aquarium. Arizona Sea Life Aquarium is located in Arizona Mills Mall in Tempe Arizona and is the perfect place to take family and friends! They have so much to offer!

I have so many cool pictures but these were a few of our favorites. Besides the sharks, sea horses, sea turtle and so on there's so much more fun to be had at Arizona Sea Life Aquarium!

My kids loved the touch pools! Here's a shot of my daughter touching a creature! They also have a few little shrimp that will walk right up to your finger and investigate.

Arizona Sea Life Aquarium also has these domes in the tanks that kids can stand up in and look into. They make it seem as if you're in the tank and gives you an amazing view. They also make for some really fun pictures!  

Here's a picture of a walkway that has water underneath. My kids really got a kick out of walking on the glass and seeing the fish and creatures swim and move around underneath their feet.

This is one of Arizona Sea Life Aquarium's Dive Adventure Quiz Trail Stations which I really appreciate as a homeschooling mom because it's not only fun but very educational. Arizona Sea Life Aquarium provides the kids with a booklet and kids go through the aquarium and complete tasks and learn fun facts to collect stamps in their books.

The kids earn medals once they complete all the Dive Adventure Quiz Trail Stations and collect all of their stamps in their booklets.

At the end of the Arizona Sea Life Aquarium they even have a play area for kids complete with a couch for all of us tired parents to sit and watch the kids play.

Another really neat thing that Arizona Sea Life Aquarium does, is every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday at 1:00PM aquarists dive into their 160,000 gallon ocean display and feed the rays. We also saw them feed the sea turtle which was my seven year old's favorite part! 

So if you're looking for something fun to do, make sure you check out Arizona Sea Life Aquarium and see what all the fuss is about! It was so much fun and the kids can't stop talking about it. They're already ready to visit again.
