Touchpool Higher Up | SEA LIFE Aquarium

Interactive Touchpool

Get your hands wet in this interactive exhibit where you can touch a variety of fascinating and unique creatures. Modeled after a west coast tide pool, this exhibit is a perfect place to find out what a sea star or anemone feels like.

Sea anemones look like plants, but they’re actually alive! These gelatinous creatures feel like jello, but look like underwater flowers. Sea stars also roam the touch pool, and guests can often see their suction-cup tube feet clinging to the glass or the rocks.

WHOA! You need to SEA this!

  • See and touch more than 8 species in our interactive touchpool experience including baby epaulette sharks
  • Ask away! Our Educators are available to answer all of your creature questions
