Before it was Underwater Adventures Aquarium, and now it's been revamped to give you even more of an amazing family experience!
Sea Life Minnesota Aquarium is a great way to see the part of the world you won't get to experience unless you strap on a diving kit and make a splash. We, of course, are talking about under the ocean! It's a whole other world down there - and a fascinating one - and one that is amazing to explore!
What happens to be your favorite sea creature? At Sea Life Minnesota there is certainly a great chance you will come face to face with whatever your answer was just because there is SO much to see!
You might find you might even come across creatures you didn't even have any idea they existed!
There are a number of exhibits that you can explore, and you really will need a full day! Can you imagine yourself submerged right at the bottom of the ocean? (except of course you can walk, see, breathe...)
The Ocean Tunnel can give you that exact experience! Your journey starts as soon as you step foot in there - and make sure you take it all in! Look around - what do you see? Sharks swimming overhead? Stingrays gliding right past you? There are literally hundreds of sea creatures swimming all around you!
This 300ft tunnel also has 4 other fun tanks - the Rainbow Reef is filled with all types of sharks, as well as tropical fish (and you can have a chance to actually snorkel with them!) and the Amazon River is an amazing experience into South America with all the weird and wonderful creatures you will find in that tropical part of the world!
Sea Life Minnesota Aquarium have amazing experiences too - like staying overnight - so make sure you check out everything that is possible!
