SeaQuest is home to 300 species and 1,500 animals from various habitats, including rain forests, deserts and the seas, according to SeaQuest’s website. Visitors can feed, touch and interact with the majority of them.

Single-day admission to the aquarium, located on the lower level Center Court of the mall at 1201 N. Hill Field Road, is $9.95 for ages 2-11, $14.95 for ages 12 and up, and $12.95 for those age 55 and older as well as in the military.

Activity tokens, which are used throughout the aquarium for feeding the animals and other elevated interactions, are offered in various packages. See the aquarium’s website for more details.

Annual membership prices vary, depending on the number of people.

The aquarium also offers opportunities for guests to swim with stingrays and get a pedicure from the “fish spa,” where a tank of doctor fish naturally exfoliate your feet.

Child care is also available; parents can drop off their children at the aquarium for a fully supervised adventure, according to the aquarium’s website.

According to previous Standard-Examiner reporting, both Davis County and Layton City have provided SeaQuest economic incentives to bring the 20,000-square-foot aquarium to Layton.
