Going aboard a vessel that has a built in aquarium under water is a cool idea, but... you can see the whole thing in 20 minutes. Staying for the show where a diver gets into the tank to show you animals adds 10 minutes. This "aquarium" is more about selling cheap trinkets in the gift shop. Time is much better... More

Save your money ... its a funky tourist trap ... If you want to see real marine life, go to the Hatfiled Marine Center which is next to the Oregon Aquarium. The Hatfield center is free and lots more to see and do with kids !!!!

I have visited the Undersea Gardens numerous times since I was six years old. I am now thirty, with a six year old son of my own. This was his first visit to the Coast, and I was eager to share all my childhood favorites with him. First, the staff was incredibly helpful and friendly, helping us decide which ticket... More

There is not a lot to this attraction and it desperately needs some refurbishing. It's ok, but not worth a separate full price ticket. Kids should like it. Not an attraction you would need to revisit over and over. Fish/crabs are huge and have probably been there many, many years.

To Whom It May Concern - The date, March 12, 2014 was a very fun and exciting day for me. My name is Carolyn Milliman and live in Brookings, Oregon. I was visiting Newport, Oregon with my husband who was in Newport for a Conference. Instead of going to his meetings with him, I ventured out on my own. We... More

Was hoping for a little more, its kind of just a big fish tank. I did not get to see the divers, so it might be better if I had.

It's okay but go here before the aquarium or you'll realize you have totally wasted your money. There is just nothing to really make you go "wow" Or haven't already seen. It's boring and not worth paying an admission fee.

If you don't go durning the show its not with it. The show was educational but short. The glass was pretty dirty so it's harder to see.

Outside on the docks someone was catching and releasing starfish we got to touch and hold. We then went in to see the aquarium and it was very cool. The fish were colorful, crabs were fighting each other, and the presentation of all the different fish they had was really interesting. Part of the tour you could touch some of... More

We make annual trips to the Undersea Gardens with the Grandkids. They love it. Walking through a glass tunnel one can enjoy the view of sharks and other fish above and below. Touch tanks allow children to touch various marine species.
