SeaQuest brings unique creatures to community

It is an immersive experience that has caught the attention of locals who crave more than a mere attraction. SeaQuest has won Best of Las Vegas three years in a row for its family-friendly and seriously fun exhibits where families can fully engage with the wonders of the undersea world while learning about the importance of conservation to save these wonderous creatures.

Located at the Boulevard Mall in Las Vegas, SeaQuest contains thousands of marine, desert, rain forest, amphibian, and reptilian animals to see, touch, feed and discover.

“We are bringing animals into the community that people would not otherwise be exposed to,” said Elsa MacDonald, VP of Marketing & PR for SeaQuest. “We are showcasing the need for conservation by bonding and understanding the challenges animals face in their own habitats.”

SeaQuest is designed for those who love animals, are passionate about the environment and want to share that experience with their children. Children can swirl their hands through crystal clear tide pools to interact with anemones and starfish while learning about the sea life from the friendly and informative staff members that are close by to enhance the experience.

“Our trained team members are well-qualified to care for each of the animals,” she said. “We have veterinarians that come in to make sure that our animals are happy and healthy, and in the best environment for them to thrive.”

Stingrays and sharks inhabit the Caribbean Coast room, where guests can feed the animals and explore their movements and habits as they gather under your fingertips.

“We bring the educational components into the attraction and combine them with all the fun that you typically don’t get from an aquarium,” she said. “Families and kids can go beyond the glass and touch, feed and bond with the many different types of animals that flourish at our Las Vegas location.”

After perusing the amphibians, fish and bird exhibits, kids flock to the virtual reality components, including a holographic image projected onto piles of sand on an interactive sand table. As children move the sand into piles around the large table, the image shows how that area would be affected environmentally. High peaks create snow caps while valleys can fill with water.

SeaQuest enjoys the shop, eat and play concept that is abundant at the Boulevard Mall. Families can take in Headz Up, John’s Incredible Pizza Company and more.

“We like being a part of all that this location offers for families to come and enjoy,” she said. “The Boulevard Mall location is easily accessible and has a lot of great family centric activities in in one place, which makes it a great gathering place.”
