  • Such a great place to learn about the sealife in Alaska! If your lucky enough to watch the birds and seals have lunch, you're in for a treat! See if you can find a staff member to give you more information on the fish - they are happy to help and made the experience more interesting when we were able to ask some questions! Don't miss the octopus or the wolf eel!!! So cool! Great views of the mountains of Alaska and a well put together center. It seems the fish could have some more space given Alaska isn't lacking any, but other than that, nice educational experience.
  • The Sea Life Center in Seward ranks as one of the top two Aquariums I have been to. The mammal, bird and fish experiences are well worth the cost. I would highly recommend a visit to this center to anyone.
