I bought an annual pass some time ago and I have enjoyed taking my grandchildren for one on one visits to the aquarium. It is just the right size for a nice afternoon letting each child determine the pace and areas of interest. I always enjoy the Doctor Fish and so do the children. Some love having the birds land on their arms and some don’t. But aside from the interesting exhibits, the animal whisperers are the BEST part. They are wonderful! Every single one that I have encountered is kind, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. I wish I could remember each of their names, but tonight Mateo met us at the octopus encounter and taught us some very interesting things! He was awesome and we really appreciated his time and expertise. If you have an hour, visit the aquarium, but don’t be surprised if it turns into two or three hours as you return to your favorite exhibits and have opportunity to learn from the whisperers!

We went for the first and last time today. I am very concerned for the wellbeing of the animals. All of the tanks were filthy and there were not enough workers to supervise. I saw kids all over the large tortoise ( touching it's feet and trying to grab it's head, one child sat on it). I asked the kids politely to stop, but they did not listen. I tried to find a worker, but there were none around the surrounding area. I finally was able to find a worker in another exhibit of the aquarium, they didn’t seem concerned. No one was supervising the iguana exhibit either, luckily everyone seemed respectful towards the iguanas while we were in the exhibit. Kids were literally grabbing the stingrays and trying to grab the sharks and again, no workers around. Yes, my son had fun, but the animals were not. I was skeptical of this idea to begin with, and now I know it’s a bad idea. Please don’t support this place! Go to the aquarium in Draper where the animals are respected and the staff is informed and care about the safety and health of their beautiful creatures. SeaQuest is awful and I will spread the word as much as I can.

April and Madison were fantastic.
We had so much fun learning about, and interacting with all the different animals.
Thank you again. We can’t wait to go back.

My husband and I were in town and my sister recommended this aquarium. I was surprised when I found out that it was in a mall, but it was still quite nice. We loved the bird exhibit and would go again if we were in town. The employees were kind and patient. Nikki was exceptionally friendly and went above and beyond in making sure we had a memorable experience. I gave 4 stars because we would have loved to go into the iguana experience but we couldn't tell what time someone would be available to do that. More signs for things like that would have been appreciated.

I took the grand kids here since they were off from school yesterday. The all had a great time and loved the hands on experience. Buying the tokens are well worth it so they could feed the sharks. Two of the grands experienced the hurricane machine and thought it was cool.
