SEA LIFE Aquarium Dallas is a two-story, 45,000 square-foot aquarium with more than 5,000 sea creatures in 30 tanks. The aquarium has a 360-degree walk-through ocean tunnel, a fascinating behind-the-scenes tour, and a shark walk for the brave visitors. Some of the marine life visitors can see at the aquarium include black tip reef sharks, seahorses, green sea turtles, stingrays, clown fish and jellyfish. Visitors can also learn about the animals that live in rock pools along the coast at the Interactive Rockpool exhibit. Here you can see starfish, crabs, sea urchin, shark pup or horseshoe crabs. All of the creatures in this section are safe to touch, and experts are on hand to help show you how to handle them. The SEA LIFE Aquarium currently has four rescued sea turtles, so check ahead for feeding times and talk schedules.
The aquarium is also active in the breeding and conservation of marine life. The establishment has saved injured and disabled sea animals and also supports other organizations that focus on these creatures.
