SeaQuest: Interactive Aquarium

“Immerse yourself in a world of discovery as SeaQuest takes you on an adventure through rainforests, deserts and the depths of the seas. “ -SeaQuest Interactive Aquarium

Located inside Boulevard Mall: The most convenient entrance is by the large SeaQuest sign near Goodwill. Once inside the mall, look for the main entrance to SeaQuest across from The Rex Center.

This is not what you’d expect from an aquarium. It’s inside the Boulevard Mall, away from the tourist attractions of Las Vegas. And that’s what has made SeaQuest Interactive Aquarium so popular among families looking for a different kind of exploration experience. It’s an escape from the heat and crowds. Designed as a ‘Quest of Edutainment’ you will find a blend of education and entertainment you won’t find anywhere else.

Tips For Your First Visit

Wear Comfy, Non-Slip Shoes

You can count on spending at least two hours at the aquarium. Make sure everyone in the family wears comfortable shoes so you can fully enjoy the experience. There are areas that may have water on the floor, so if you can make it a non-slip shoe, that’s even better. Socks for the little ones are suggested so you can enjoy the jump house in the party room if a party isn’t booked during your visit.

If You Can, Leave the Stroller In The Car

If you have a walking age child, you’ll want to leave the stroller in the car. Being such an interactive and hands-on place, it will start to be a hassle taking your little one in and out of the stroller. There will most likely be crowds in certain areas, so it will make for a smoother experience if you don’t have to worry about the stroller. Pack a backpack and head in for some fun!

Adults Will Enjoy It Just As Much As The Kids

If you think this is going to be a day of activities just for the kids, you’re wrong. Adults will enjoy the entire aquarium just as much as the little ones. It’s truly filled with activities that you can enjoy with the entire family. From the animal feedings, to the shows, to the countless photo opportunities, this is a a family day that you’ll never forget — especially the adults.

Feeding Tokens

Tokens are used for interactive animal feedings throughout the aquarium. Insert your tokens in the vending style feeding machines at available exhibits. To prevent over feeding and keep the animals on a schedule, some feedings may not be available. Don’t worry, check back for the next feeding.

If purchasing a package online, spring for the package that includes tokens. It really completes the hands-on experience. Tokens never expire, so if you don’t use them all, save them for your next trip to the aquarium. Or, if you don’t want to save them for your next visit, you can use them as a credit towards a purchase in the gift shop, concessions or with the mermaid.
