Old, wet, and full of sea creatures. Great kiddie area for petting the tamer critters and mostly playing in water. The seals are noisy and splash to get attention and a herring. Lot's of free brochures about the Ocean.and sea creatures.

I love this place. Simple, and old, it probably has not changed much in years. Buy some fish and feed the seals. Did I say old?...Yes it is old, but I suppose that is the charm of the place. Add it to the other tourist stops along Highway 101

Small little aquarium along the water front in Seaside. Inside the entrance they have hungry sea lions that you can purchase food to feed them. Once inside all of the walls are lined with aquariums that have a variety of well labeled sea life. In the center there is a larger rock lined aquarium with an octopus and a touch... More

My mom and I stopped in here on a Mom and Daughter trip. She had been as a young girl and wanted to take me. It is right on the beach. The Aquarium is very small, but they pack a lot into it. I think younger kids would enjoy this more. I know my 9 and 11 year old would... More

I'm glad I had free passes... The seals were fun and once around the small ocean-life exhibits was somewhat interesting. My 6 y/o enjoyed it but was ready to leave after 20 minutes.

Loved feeding the sea otters, be warned that they will splash you. Small aquarium but had lots of hands on stuff for kids.

What a cute little aquarium. Our children really enjoyed watching the seals (which you can feed for a small fee) but their favorite part was getting to hold little crabs and starfish in the touch tanks. The employees were very informative and pleasant. We will definitely be back on our next visit!

Great experience for my family. First time to the aquarium and the seals were a greeting to remember! We touched the starfish and read about the striped fish from Japan!! What a trip it had! Thank you and we look forward to returning in the summer.

This is a small aquarium with Seals that are splashy & noisy & fun at feeding time. Small enough that the kids do not get bored.

I had free entrance to the aquarium through a Groupon deal with my lodging. I got there shortly after they opened on a truly wet, cold, rainy day, and I can say that ALL of the staff were welcoming, sunny and warm! The aquarium is very small, but it gives an exceptional introduction to the aquatic life of the Oregon... More
