Where Can You Find SeaQuest Utah?

SeaQuest Utah is located inside the Layton Hills Mall, right in the heart of Layton. Only 20 miles North of Salt Lake City, Layton sits right at the base of the majestic Wasatch Mountain range and is home to about 80,000 residents. It’s easy to access right off of I-15 and allows visitors to enjoy its many shops, small businesses, and beautiful parks.


Layton is located in the Northern region of Utah, a great state known for its spectacular rock formations and unique geographic features. The most famous icon of the state, the Great Salt Lake, is located a few minutes west of Layton and is a highly desired attraction for those visiting Utah. Lagoon Amusement Park is only 7 miles south of Layton, while Temple Square in Downtown SLC is about a 25-minute drive away.


SeaQuest Utah can be found inside the Layton Hills Mall, directly below the food court, with its entrance on the lower level – next to the BoxLunch retail store.

“What a wonderful place! The staff is so friendly and they were great with my kids. The variety and amount of interaction with the animals/aquatic life is absolutely more than worth the amount. The facility was clean and well managed. So happy we attended!”

“Had a great experience here! Tons of hands-on interaction available with almost every exhibit there! We purchased tokens to buy food to feed lots of different animals there or do an experience (like going into the bird room and having dozens of birds fly down and eat right out of your hands!)…We will definitely be visiting again!”

“Super fun place! Aquarium and small animal ‘zoo’. It was exciting to look at all the animals, but even more fun to feed/pet the animals!”
