SEA LIFE Michigan, the 35,000-square-foot aquarium set to open in Great Lakes Crossing Outlets in early 2015, has reached a major construction milestone: filling the attraction’s 120,000 gallon ocean tank with water!
The filling of the ocean tank happened yesterday and is a key landmark in construction. SEA LIFE artists have worked tirelessly to create an exciting themed environment in the tank, including rock and coral formations, and a sculpture of Neptune’s head. It’s going to be beautiful!

The aquarium will house more than 5,000 creatures, including sharks, stingrays, jellyfish, sea horses, a giant Pacific octopus and more. Guests will have a one-of-a-kind opportunity to get nose-to-nose with the creatures in the aquarium’s unique 180-degree ocean tunnel, interactive touch pools and engaging, educational exhibits that focus on conservation.
