Sea Life Arizona Tempe
Where are we going today?
Sea Life Arizona is a pretty awesome attraction. Why? Because you get to explore the amazing creatures of the ocean...without having to get wet!
This awesome sea adventure has over 5,000 creatures, all spread out for you to explore and learn from over 30 displays. There are fun touch tanks and interactive elements for the kids too, so they can REALLY feel and touch their way around some of the weird and wonderful species that we have on this planet.
Sea Life Arizona has a HUGELY diverse collection! Have you ever spotted a hermit crab hiding in his shell, or come face to face with the Great Pacific Octopus?
There are colorful and unique jellyfish to study, and those tropical fish like the Cowfish and Yellow Tang Fish to marvel at!
Make sure when you first arrive at Sea Life Arizona, you check out all the talks and feeding times that are occurring across the day. You won't want to miss learning about their rays as they feed (did you spot their mouths before they started eating!?)
Little kids might love the Tide Pool Brunch where they feed the creatures in their touch pool which is a great hands-on experience for them, and the whole family can have a JAWsome time at the shark tank as the team feed those sharp toothed creatures!
With talks and experiences with coral, sea horses, turtles, and well, the ocean in general, make sure you catch the ones your family will love!
All of the displays at Sea Life Arizona have information on the creatures, so it really is a great learning experience for the kids, as well as a super fun one!

If you want to die a slow boring death and pays lots of money for it off come here. This place was way over priced and such a bore. The young ones had fun so do it for the kids. Exhibits are far too fall. The aquarium was too small. You could walk through in 5-7 min. To make the experience last long walk slowly or before you know it will be the fastest 50 dollars you ever lost. On bright note they have an awesome shark tank. I was stunted! Go see that thing if you can get a Groupon or a deal. Big turtles in there with other sea life. The shark tank...Read More

It's nice for something to do on hot days, however I don't think it's really worth the price. Pretty short. Each exhibit looks big because of the structure around it, but the actual number of fish seems kind of low. My 3yr old wasn't really digging it. He did however get excited to see the Octonauts were there and he got to have his picture taken with them.

Is Sea Life going to compare to some of the gems in California? Probably not. However for an aquarium inside an Arizona shopping mall, it really is as good as could be expected.

Exhibits good for small kids, but there is little control of school groups in the place, so keep your small kids close. My son got attacked, repeatedly kicked, by a boy from a school group that visited when he was playing in the kids zone area. I had to climb up the structure to save my screaming 3 year old. When I brought it to the attention of the management, they stated that they would look into it. Translation, they did nothing. I will NEVER step foot in that place again.

Worst customer service experience possible. AFTER paying for two tickets the attendant tells us we can't come in with the drink we just purchased. No refund policy and non transferable admission. So when our young daughter became very tired we were forced to walk through or waste $40. I will never be back and will discourage every single person I know from attending.

Go see that thing if you can get a Groupon or a deal. Big turtles in there with other sea life. The shark tank is amazing. Also I got to see the octopus expose his underside in the tiny octopus exhibit. It was so alien like, freaky. Felt bad for the fella because it wasn't enough room to move. Made wonder if he was in that position by choice.
