Enjoyed all the sea lions and seals swimming around . Saw the puffins also swimming with the halibut, rockfish, cod, etc. A great place for families

We go to Seward every other year on vacation. We always set aside one afternoon to visit the SeaLife center. The exhibits are very good and the volunteers are excellent.

This is a very nice museum/educational center for a rainy day or if you want something relaxing. The staff is very knowledgeable and does good work. However there's not that much to see to justify the high cost.

Great way to spend a few rainy hours learning about Alaska sealife. The birds and animals were fun to watch.

This is an awesome sealife center. You are introduced to all kinds of sealife from birds, fish and mammals. The staff is amazing. Everyone learns something they didn't know when they came in. I learn something new every time I go! Do not miss this!

Great experience in charming Seward. Try to avoid the aquarium, if you can, when cruise ships are in town. The aquarium is small (2 floors) and the exhibits can get crowded. While the aquarium is small, it is a wonderful educational experience and a therapeutic...More
