"Great Day Trip"

We’ve been here on multiple occasions. We always have a great time. We always learn so much. The last time we went we got a behind the scenes tour. I was BLOWN AWAY! We saw where they hold the mommies while they’re pregnant, how they filter the water in all of the tanks, where they prepare the food and learned A TON of great things. It’s a fantastic place to visit.

We are new to Charlotte. Every person we met at Sea Life was extremely friendly. The young lady who sold us our tickets and the gentlemen at the sea star touch tank were all kind and apt to teach. Austin answered our questions at the touch tank and took us on our behind the scenes tour, and we found him to be extremely knowledgeable and easy to talk with. We both feel that we learned so much and that we were exposed to some real underwater beauty. We’ll be back, and we will recommend this to anyone in Charlotte who’s looking for a place to experience ocean life.

We had a great time! I took my 8 year old niece and she loved it. We did the "behind the scene" tour with Austin and he was amazing! The aquarium is a little pricey but worth it. We had a great experience!!!
