Families Love it at SEA LIFE
SEA LIFE Aquarium is a fantastic stop for the family. Since the layout loops around like a river, it is so easy to travel around the path together while still letting the kids have some independence to explore on their own – a feature my “runners” love.
SEA LIFE is Michigan’s largest aquarium and has over 250 species and 2,000 creatures living there. There are six different species of sharks alone. I didn’t even know there were that many – I better brush up on my animal kingdom knowledge.
We always hunt for the sea creatures we recognize from Finding Nemo. With so many creatures in the aquarium we found many new ones, too.
Interactive Experiences & Exhibits to Look Forward To
Here are 5 things we loved about SEA LIFE Aquarium-
The OCEAN TUNNEL!
It is so fun to walk underneath the giant Underwater Ocean Tunnel and watch all of the incredible sea life swimming around and over you. See if you can find the sharks, sea turtle, stingrays and more.
Learning and reading about new fish and sea life we had never seen before like the Lion Fish and Giant Japanese Crab.
Playing in the climbing-structure located near the exit.
HERMIT CRAB & TOUCHPOOL
In addition to watching the creatures in their tanks, my kids also love the interactive touchpool and the Michigan freshwater exhibit.
While petting the hermit crab and other creatures is a highlight, my turtle-loving husband was thrilled that two rescued sea turtles live at SEA LIFE Aquarium.
GOOD TO KNOW
The Tropical Ocean Exhibit with sharks, stingrays, loads of fish, and the sea turtle are at the end of the trail.
Enjoy the wonder along the way because there are great gems along the path that could be missed if one is anticipating sharks at every turn.
(I don’t know what is about them, but I just love watching seahorses float around in their tanks. I have to snap myself out of it before I lose track of my brood!)
