The OdySea interpreters know A LOT about animals and they love sharing knowledge. Encourage your kiddo to ask questions.

There is a quiet patio near Lighthouse Cafe and a hand stamp gives you same day re-entry if you want to leave then come back.

You can carefully touch sea creatures at two designated touch tanks. Use two fingers and wash your hands BEFORE and AFTER touching the animals.

OdySea Aquarium offers a quiet room near Penguin Point for any guest who needs a break. Just ask any staff member.

Lots of touching, crawling, coloring and building opportunities with touch tanks and play available throughout the aquarium.

The ocean smell is strong when you walk in, but your nose adjusts to it quickly. The patio near Lighthouse Cafe offers a break if needed.
