OdySea Aquarium, located in Scottsdale, was voted Best Indoor Attraction in Arizona.  This multi-level, state-of-the-art facility holds more than 2 million gallons of water and is the largest aquarium in Arizona. OdySea Aquarium offers an educational, interactive and entertaining experience for guests of all ages by combining theme-park style amusement with highly engaging presentations of aquatic life. OdySea Aquarium features more than 65 exhibits, 370 species, the world’s only Russian Sturgeon touch exhibit as well as two stingray touch exhibits and a tide touch pool! OdySea is also home to Voyager, a stadium-seating style theatre with 46 ft. viewing windows for the “world’s only revolving aquarium experience.”  Additional interactive activities include SeaTREK® underwater walking adventure, a charismatic “Penguin Encounter,” “Shark Behind the Scenes” tours, walk-about “Animal Ambassadors,” and Question & Answer sessions with OdySea Aquarium’s Animal Care Specialists.
