Have you been to the Sea Life Aquarium inside Arizona Mills lately? It is a wonderful way to entertain the kids, learn about sea life (appropriately named, eh?) and escape the summer heat. The aquarium houses over 5,000 creatures in 30 displays, including a 360 degree tunnel with sharks, rays and the Ziva, the aquarium’s famous rescued sea turtle. They also offer a hands-on center where you can hold a crab or touch a starfish. Pretty cool, huh? Well, I’m just getting started because today I was lucky enough to get a VIP behind-the-scenes tour, which they are opening to the public on Friday, June 29th. Tours will be held five times each day at 11:00, 12:00, 1:00, 2:00 and 3:o0. During this tour you and your gang will learn how the team cares for the 5,000 creatures, how they make ocean water in the desert, visit the laboratory, animal care and kitchen areas as well as experience hands-on learning and interactive fun. I have got to tell you, before today I hadn’t been out to the aquarium but WOW, my son loved it and we will definitely be going back very soon. Don’t live in the Valley? Don’t fret, there are Sea Life Aquariums all throughout the United States. Visit www.sealifeus.com to find an aquarium near you. Here are a few pictures from our adventure today.
