Here is something different….an Underwater Halloween Pumpkin Carve-Off at Sea Life Grapevine. Halloween activities, October 28 and 31 include…

  • Underwater Pumpkin Carve-Off:  It’s hard enough carving Halloween pumpkins on dry land, let alone submerged in a 160,000-gallon ocean tank surrounded by sharks, rays, sea turtles, fish and other marine life.  Watch as animals get in on the action as divers compete in underwater pumpkin carve-offs. (11:30 a.m. on scheduled days.)
  • Sea Turtle Bobbing: Watch SEA LIFE Grapevine’s famous sea turtles bob for pumpkins in the ocean tank at Dinosaur Dive. (10:30 a.m. on scheduled days)

  • Spooky Fish Trail:  You’ll get quite a fright from marine life tanks decorated with Halloween décor. Be on the lookout for creepy creatures and scary fish facts.
