(AUBURN HILLS, MI) – Sea Life Michigan Aquarium, the 35,000-square-foot aquatic attraction at Great Lakes Crossing Outlets, in Auburn Hills, officially opened its doors to the public this past January, offering up-close and personal experiences with sea creatures for visitors from across North America.
Sea Life Michigan Aquarium takes guests on an awe-inspiring, educational journey through an amazing underwater world featuring more than 5,000 incredible creatures such as sharks, stingrays, jellyfish, eels, sea horses, tropical fish, a Giant Pacific Octopus, and fish native to the Great Lakes and surrounding waterways.
Guests have the unique opportunity to get nose-to-nose with these creatures in interactive, engaging exhibits, including a dazzling 180-degree ocean tunnel, and a hands-on touch pool.
“Just a short drive from the Canadian border, our location at the Great Lakes Crossing Outlets makes for the perfect family day trip,” said Debbie Gibb, Sea Life Michigan’s Marketing Manager. “Our state-of-the-art aquarium can be enjoyed by everyone, from a family trip, to a fun date night idea, and with our emphasis on fun education, when you visit Sea Life not only will you learn something new, but you may also be inspired to support our worldwide conservation efforts.”
Enjoy the beauty of the ocean and its creatures by holding a crab or touching a sea star at the interactive touch pool, watching the fun talks and feeding shows throughout the day, and taking in the experience of watching more than 5,000 sea creatures throughout the attraction.
Located 45 minutes from the Canadian border, the brand new Sea Life Michigan Aquarium is also open for school and group tours seven days a week and birthday parties on weekends.
