Create an itinerary including Oregon Coast Aquarium
One of the nation’s favorite marine attractions, Oregon Coast Aquarium is still best remembered as the home to Free Willy’s star orca, Keiko. Dive into experiences of marine life at Passages of the Deep, wave hello to the Tufted Puffin at Seabird Aviary, and explore outdoor mammal exhibits to find out more about otters, seals, and sea lions. It’s so easy to immerse yourself in learning and wonder at this aquarium, especially as you pass through the acrylic tunnel surrounded by underwater wildlife. It is also possible to snorkel or dive in the tanks, or to spend a night sleeping under the sharks exhibit! A visit to Oregon Coast Aquarium represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Newport trip itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

  • The creatures and animals are really cool to look at. They have sea otters and sea lions and a walk through tunnel of deep sea creatures. There is a petting station for star fish and other cute little guys. It is very educational so I highly recommend taking your children there. Update: things were sadly closed due to staffing but the volunteers and staff were so so nice!
  • Really friendly staff! The exhibits are engaging and the animals look like they enjoy their life. Love the otters! They swim around and play with the kids by the window! So cute! The underwater tunnels are out of this world, absolutely stunning! Returned in 2020 they kept up the covid restrictions and I felt very safe going here.
