We didn’t expect Seaquest Aquarium to be so crowded on our first visit there. Chelsea and I really love looking at the different animals and sea creatures. There is so many different animals to see, feed and even touch. This place is definitely somewhere you need to plan on staying for more than a couple of hours. I am the type to start having anxiety when it is too crowded. I think Chelsea and I are going to pick days to go when its not so crazy.
We really loved watching all of the different fish swimming around in the tanks. We noticed the tanks didn’t have labels so that was a bit of a drawback as Chelsea kept asking what type of fish they were. I also noticed that some of the tanks were empty. I am wondering if they will be adding more to the tanks. Chelsea and I plan on going back in a couple weeks. Chelsea I really enjoying checking out these different kinds of fish, birds and reptiles. Chelsea really loved the Lorikeets. I really loved feeding the sting rays. Chelsea loved playing the different water activities. They even have games on the floor that the kids can play. There is a section where they can color pictures. There are a lot of benches and areas to sit down and just enjoy the atmosphere.
I was afraid at first to pet the stingrays but the one that I was feeding seemed pretty friendly. It felt weird but I definitely enjoyed the experience. I feel that this place is great for locals and for even tourists that would like to get off of the strip. I tend to avoid the strip because of to many crowds and not enough things to do that is low cost with young children.
