Two of my favourite sea creatures - seahorses and rays - in one place in the middle of hot, dry Texas! Hubby and I came for a couple of hours respite from the Memorial Day heat, and it was lovely to slow down and look at the creatures. Several of the displays are interactive, where you can gently touch the critters. I was really surprised to learn that this far inland the aquarium hosts a rehabilitation facility for sick & injured sea turtles! The turtles are released back into the wild by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service which partners with the aquarium; pretty cool! The tunnel under the shark and ray tank is great - and watching the reaction of the kids as a hammerhead glides by over their head is just as much fun as looking at the ocean beasties :-)

We love this one. Lots to see for the boys. And this one is full of fish! I like the tunnels where sharks swim overhead. And there are lots of large tanks for you to have a great experience.

By comparison, the Dallas aquarium only had a few windows with fish. If I can call them windows. More birds and otters, penguins etc. I expect an aquarium to be about life under the sea.

Sea Life delivers. And that’s why we take He boys here instead of Dallas.

Note: it’s in the mall. Best parking is near the movie theater.

Fantastic experience at this small but very educative facility! Well maintained, it is a must see. The aquarium was created and designed to create awareness about the dangers our oceans and its habitants are facing! Take the whole family!

The Sea Life Aquarium is located inside the grapevine mills mall but don't let that fool you. The Aquarium to big and worth the admission. They have everything from tiny fish to big sharks and rescue sea turtles. I was worried that it would be geared too much to the little guys but my teen and preteen had a great time too and really enjoyed it as did I and grandpa! The aquarium is set up really well with an interactive turtle saving activity and a walk through glass tube where you can see the sharks and large stingrays swim all around.

There is an activity book and at each station, the kids can collect a stamp if they collect all they get a small prize at the gift shop counter. It was a great way to keep them engaged. We spent about 2 hours here.

Nice place to go check out some sea life for young and older folks, loved the tunnel where you watch the sharks and other fish swim over your head!! 25 dollars for adults but it was worth it.
