Owner description: An education and research-focused aquarium offering underwater views of Alaskan marine animals.
Reviewed 8 February 2012

This is a small aquarium, but we enjoyed spending time in the sea lion area and the bird/puffin area. If you even step outside there is a great view from the second floor area of the water. There is plenty of things for kids to interact with, such as the touch pool and mulitmedia items. The gift shop is same kind of stuff. Being there 2 different times it still enjoy watching the puffins and other birds swim around and play in the water. If you are looking for something to keep you occupied for more than 2 hours, this is not the stop for you.

It is a nice size aquarium with overlooking of sea and stellar lion conservation from the 2nd floor. When we got there, we were lucky enough to see puffin's feeding time. It was so much fun !

Although not a huge place it is very well done and the talks are very informative.

We have had a family membership for a number of years and even though our children are grown we make time to travel down several times a year. Winter visits are enjoyable because of the different activity levels of the animals and we enjoy quieter moments. Staff have always been helpful and we have participated in several "behind the scenes" tours that are highly informative.

Plan on spending several hours at this nice size sealife center. Very clean. The location of it is as nice as the center itself. Children will love it.
