Go ahead and consider this post my gift to you. I took a bajillion pictures during the media preview event to give you solid reasoning as to why I think this aquarium is a fabulous addition to Great Lakes Crossing. Like, for real. You should go. Michael is STILL talking about the sharks and stingrays.
And, if I’m being totally honest here, I’m 99.9% sure big Michael enjoyed himself, too. Maybe. But what do I know? I’m just the person in charge of taking pictures of said enjoyment. You be the judge.
In case you forgot, I’m an ambassador for SEA LIFE Michigan. All opinions and pictures are my own.
This aquarium was magical! Our journey started with freshwater fish, swung around to sea turtles, and dropped us into a gorgeous underwater tunnel. An underwater tunnel with a bench. I don’t know how your toddler is but mine was all “Look at that fish! Whoa! SHARK! Look at the SHARK!”
There was no resting for my very pregnant self until we reached the tunnel.
You see, scattered throughout the aquarium were touchscreens full of information about the creatures in each display. Touchscreens that came in handy because under the sea facts do not take up much room in big Michael’s vault of random knowledge.
Believe it or not… mommies and daddies do not know all. See all? Yes. Know all? Not so much.
Here is a short video clip of what to expect in this area.

Random SEA LIFE Information:
- Parking- SEA LIFE is located next to Rainforest Cafe, entry 7.
- Restrooms are available- I would go before heading in so there are no accidents. Well… if your toddler is anything like mine and magically doesn’t have to pee when he is really excited.
- Crowd control- You will be given and/or you will select a time to arrive. This helps the staff control the number of guests entering the aquarium at one time and ensures everyone gets quality ‘facetime’ with their fish friends.
- No food or drink- Your tickets are good all day so you can come and go as the crew gets hungry.
- Groups- There are discount rates available for groups and field trips. There are even birthday party packages.
SEA LIFE Michigan Ticket Prices:
- Individual ticket: $23.50
