We just LOVE the idea of the ocean and all the creatures that inhabit it, and Idaho Aquarium can allow you to feel like you actually are under the ocean, spending time with all the weird and wonderful creatures that they have down there!
They have over 250 species of oceanic life, with tanks built especially for kids!
Ever touched a shark or a ray? Do you want to? Be brave, you might just love the feel of their skin! Is it what you imagined? The shark and ray tank, as well as the ride pool exhibit, allow you to get your hands wet and actually TOUCH the creatures that are living in there. Even the smallest kids in the family can have a go!
You can learn more about the sharks in the Shark and Puffer exhibit, where they have a number of shark species that you can learn about, as well as a coral reef which provides another level of healthy filtration for the sharks. Do you know how that is? Best get down there to find out the answer!
Go deep into the Amazon with stingrays, catfish and bass all found in the depths of South America, or visit the Octopus Palace where you can witness these incredible creatures who have the problem solving ability of an 8 year old – bet you didn’t know that!
The aquarium isn’t just those that live in the ocean, however. They have cute dwarf Caiman Alligators that you can look at up close (sometimes they have babies!), as well as colorful and beautiful birds in their aviary.
If you want to spend your birthday happily under the ocean with all the creatures, they can hold your birthday party here!
Oh I want to be….under the sea….
