Even better than being by the ocean

See sharks, and other sea life swim over you while you go through the tunnel. A great experience, especially on a cold, snowy day in Minnesota.

This place was so full of so much creatures to see first hand. The way it's built and the atmosphere is just stunning. First time visit is always the best. Great for kids and visiting families. I very much enjoyed it.

Visited here in December and again in May. They just opened a new area with "touch pools"! They were wonderful for the kids and the adults. Looks for deals on tickets before you come. We truly enjoy this kind of attraction, but it is small so don't plan to be here all day. Our kids practically run through it each... More

This place is expensive but we were able to get $7 off tickets at Subway so that helped. We were here on a Saturday at noonish but it was not nearly as busy as I expected. We really enjoyed looking at the stingrays and the jellyfish and going through the tunnels. Our kids 12, 10, 7 enjoyed seeing all the... More

Going to Underwater Adventure feels like you're in a section of a big zoo or Sea World. The shark tank is worth the price of admission - walking through/under a gigantic tank full of sharks, eels, and other animals is really fun. Check for discount tickets on various online sites before buying your tickets. They also have special events that... More

Jellyfish in colored tanks. Stingrays, sharks and other creatures you can pet. Take your time walking through the glass tunnel with all the sea creatures all around. Lots of walking but at your own pace. Our backstage tour was the only let down. Boring.

We are local and my youngest asked to have Underwater Adventure as her birthday party activity. I would definitely recommend checking out the annual pass option, as it pays for itself after only a couple visits. Since we have the annual pass we have been there a few times, and we have enjoyed ourselves each time. There is a small... More

Photo ops, underwater and environmental education, Underwater Adventure has it all! Once the daily wristband is purchased, your family can enjoy Underwater Adventure all day! The end of the park has a gift shop.
