We have only been in here once and that is all about what it is worth. The price is kind of expensive for what is offered. Newport aquarium much better and worth seeing.This place is really small I feel bad for the sea creatures especially the seals. Other than that it's worth the one time of going and saying you...

Great for small children. My teenagers still like to go. This year took my grandson. Seals are always a hit with the kids and grandchildren. Aquarium is small, that is my largest issue. But still worth seeing with children and grand children

The thing you have to remember is that this is one of the oldest aquariums on the west coast. And it has stayed true to the aquarium it has always been. It's not big. It's not fancy. It doesn't have any bright and colorful fish. Neither does our ocean here! This aquarium shows you the things you will find in... More

A longtime landmark of Seaside, this little aquarium is located perfectly along the promenade, just south of the turnaround. It is not a world class aquarium but it is perfect for families with kids. You are immediately greeted by fun/playful otters at the entrance - even before you pay your entrance fee.

It's actually bigger than it looks once you get inside. My child loved seeing everything in the tanks, getting to touch some sea creatures, and feeding the seals. Great place to take a break from the sun (or rain).

I read reviews and saw the unassuming exterior, so I didn't expect much. My family really enjoyed it. Feeding the seals and getting to see each one's personalities show was fun. I liked the tanks where you could touch the sealife. Kind of like your own stocked tide pool. We got a coupon from our hotel to come back free... More

This small place was ok. It was a little outdated but the visitors seemed to be satisfied with the sea life; especially the seals. Fish can be purchased to feed the seals at a small cost. It was ok and it does have a small gift shop.

One large room attraction with aquariums built into the walls, but its only $7 each admission, needs some TLC

Nice, quaint little aquarium located right on the beach. When you think aquarium, you think of a large facility with shows, whales, dolphins, etc. This is a small place, but very educational and perfect for children. Some exhibits allow children to touch. The highlight is feeding the harbor seals. Great little place, perfect for family, reasonably priced, and best of... More
