Slated to open July 2016 in Scottsdale, OdySea Aquarium will be the largest aquarium in the Southwest.

Spanning 200,000 square feet, the two-level aquarium will hold more than 2 million gallons of water and accommodate up to 15,000 visitors daily.

A New Standard

OdySea Aquarium will set a new standard for how future aquariums are designed with its innovative use of theme park technology to create an educational and entertaining oceanic adventure like none other in the industry.

The Experience

Visitors will travel between the aquarium’s levels along walkways encased in giant submerged acrylic tubes surrounded by thousands of sea creatures on all sides. Live exhibits will be complemented by state-of-the-art media, interactive shows and entertaining presentations.

Marine Life

From sharks, turtles, and penguins to jellyfish, octopus and more, OdySea Aquarium will present some of the most fascinating marine life from around the world in beautiful replications of their natural habitats.

OdySea Aquarium is projected to employ more than 250 individuals. There will be a 501c3 non-profit foundation that will administer educational programs, conservation programs, and services.

OdySea

When the 14-acre OdySea Aquarium opens in July 2016, it will be like no other aquarium in the United States.

Designed with the latest theme park technology, OdySea Aquarium is a totally immersive experience that will take you deeper and deeper into the fascinating world that lies hidden just below the surface of our planet’s water.

Through large-scale exhibits, touch pools, a 3D theatre, and more, OdySea Aquarium will bring you closer than ever to thousands of marine animals from around the world. You’ll be just inches away from sharks, turtles, jellyfish, electric eels, sting-rays, octopus, penguins and many more.

Plus the depths of OdySea Aquarium will hold a few secrets that will only be revealed to the public once it opens in 2016!

You’ll move between the levels of OdySea Aquarium through acrylic tube walkways while some of the sea’s most mesmerizing and menacing creatures swim all around you.

To get even closer, our SeaTREK Experience actually puts you in the water for a guided tour walking along the “ocean floor” to join some of OdySea Aquariums most colorful and curious sea creatures in their natural habitat. No diving certification required and you don’t even have to know how to swim!

OdySea Aquarium will be a one-of-a-kind aquatic destination in the desert you’ll want to explore over and over again.

Great to have an aquarium in the valley! Sure the tanks need cleaning and signage are needed. But the carousel was great! Very "Jurassic Park". Sharks, otters, penguins were a highlight. Penguins and Stingrays came up very close to our daughter and she loved it. Looking forward to them adding more fish and it getting even better.
