Sea Life Caverns

Sea Life Caverns ImageWest Edmonton Mall has an indoor lagoon which contains a salt-water habitat with four California sea lions and a replica of the Santa María, built during the 1986 World Exposition in Vancouver. The Santa María has been used for an annual Christmas fundraiser, raising toys for underprivileged children. Also, the submarines, a longtime favorite, had been replaced with the Deep-Sea Derby, a bumper boat ride with squirt guns. This attraction has since been removed. Deep Sea Adventure is also home to the mall’s aquatic life, most of which are housed beneath the main floor in the “Sea Life Caverns”. Sea Life Caverns is home to a wide variety of animals including fish, reptiles, amphibians and penguins. There is a 525,000 litre tropical salt-water aquarium that is home to an array of fish, sharks and sea turtles. This is the largest of its kind in Western Canada. Today, what was once the ‘Dolphin’s Lagoon’ is now known as ‘Sea Lions’ Rock’, which is home to four California sea lions (Pablo, Kelpie, Clara, (2004–present) and Quinty (2008 – present)). They have educational shows with a focus on conservation that run twice a day from Monday to Friday (2pm, 4pm), and three times a day on Saturday and Sunday (12pm, 2pm, 4pm).
