About
SEA LIFE Charlotte-Concord is specially built to cater to kids ages 3-12. Our unique construction is specifically designed so that your kids can have the same viewing experience as adults, and in some cases even better! We even have a soft play area for your kids to blow off some steam before you head home. Your family will travel from the fresh waters of the Catawba River in the Blue Ridge Mountains to the salt waters of the Atlantic Ocean and beyond in about an hour, in an intimate environment. We are the Charlotte area's only full-time aquarium and are accredited by the Association of Zoos & Aquariums. We're open every day and you can save time and money by booking online.

My husband really enjoyed this aquarium.. it was worth the experience.. i am not into aquariums but i enjoyed myself also.. i learned alot.. the aquarium was very clean and the staff was wearing masks and they encouraged hand washing.. they were hand santizers also.. what i didnt like was the limitation of souvenirs for adults..

We all had a great time. The kids loved doing the scavenger hunt. This was a nice time filler until our hotel was ready. We would come again.

We stopped in to kill some time. It was ok for a mall aquarium, but it's not worth the money we paid.

It was cute for kids but l, in my opinion, way over priced. $42.00 for two adults and took us about 30 minutes to go through.

A surprisingly enjoyable attraction. I was surprised to find it in a mall and was skeptical of its quality. Both our kids (ages 14 and 8) enjoyed themselves thoroughly. It took about 1 hour to complete but allowed the option to return to the start to see anything you wanted to enjoy again. Knowing the admission fee goes to help rehabilitate and rescue our oceans and sea life offsets the higher cost.

We were camping nearby and thought this would be fun for the kids. We were a little taken aback by the price (8 of us) but we did it anyway. It was OK, but not much for the money. I don't think we would go back again. It would be more interesting and fun if there was more hands on things to touch and do for the money.

We had a great time here. It is a little more than you would think it should be but with today’s prices and economy I’m not surprised. Nothing is cheap anymore. My family did this after doing outside activities and it was a good change up. They have a lot of different fish and ocean life to learn about. Kids can really see and learn a lot from this activity. It lasted about 20-30 mins for us to walk through. We bought our tickets online as well.

The aquarium is pretty small, like we got through in 15 min and we were like... that’s it? There was a play place for the kids at the end but of course because of Covid it’s closed- such a shame. Thankfully we didn’t have to pay for our children (both under 2) but for my husband and I we still spent $40. I wouldn’t recommend this aquarium based on how overpriced it is for how little you get.

This was a neat little diversion on our way home. Passing through Charlotte, I saw this aquarium and decided to have my mom stop. It’s great for it’s size, and offers an array of cool sea creatures. There’s a touch tank for the kids (and kids at heart) and really interesting displays. While I wish it had been a bit larger, the aquarium was still great. The walkthrough tunnel is definitely a highlight, as you get up close and personal with Sting Rays, Sharks, and even Neptune the Sea Turtle! Definitely take your time, and enjoy all this museum has to offer! Sometimes you notice new things in the tank after you look at it for a bit!
