The 10 Best & Biggest Aquariums in Las Vegas [Ultimate Guide]


I’m an aquarium guy. I’ve been keeping saltwater aquariums off and on for the last 30 years. But I gave it up when we moved to Las Vegas. We’ve been traveling quite a bit and I figured it would be just too difficult to maintain an aquarium if we weren’t around all the time. So imagine how happy I was to discover that Las Vegas is home to some of the best and biggest aquariums in the country! You’re definitely going to want to check out one or more of these tanks when visiting Las Vegas.

What are the best aquariums in Las Vegas? The best aquariums in Las Vegas are:

Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay The Aquarium at the Silverton Hotel The Tank at the Golden Nugget SeaQuest Las Vegas Siegfried and Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat

Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World Aquarium Tank The Atlantis Aquarium at The Forum Shops The Aquarium at the Mirage Chart House Aquarium Restaurant and Bar Zappos Nap Room Aquarium

Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay

Shark Reef Aquarium at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino is probably the most well known of the aquariums in the city. True to form, this Las Vegas aquarium is themed as an ancient temple that is slowly sinking into the sea.

You’ll enter the temple above ground. This area is home to dangerous animal predators in exhibits ranging from Golden Crocodiles to Komodo dragons to snakes. As you continue walking and start to sink beneath the water level you’ll encounter turtles and schools of man-eating Piranha.
