Great exhibits regarding Alaskan sea life. Has some hands on exhibits for children and adults. I never tire of watching the sea otters and harbor seals swimming. Be sure to go into the bird enclosure and see the sea birds close up.

The SeaLife Center is a wonderful place to view and learn about many of the creatures that inhabit the marine environment around Alaska. The displays are very nice and well-maintained. The staff are friendly and extremely knowledgeable. The up-close encounters with seals, sea lions, birds, and octopus are well worth the price!

The place was so awesome. We got to see and even touch some of the Alaskan wildlife. It was amazing. I would have to say seeing the giant sea lion do tricks was the best. Thanks for a great experience.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the Alaska SeaLife Center in Seward, Alaska. We spent a little over an hour looking at the live exhibits of sea life. My favorite part was the bird room where we saw puffins and ducks and other birds flying, swimming, and diving. A funny thing happened while there, a lady with blond hair was... More

This center had a lot of attractions to view. The birds were great to watch and you were able to get close to them. Very interesting center, we enjoyed it! It was a reasonable price too!

We walked along the bay from the far end of Seward by the harbor to the ASLC. It is about a mile although they have a free bus(yellow) transportation. It is worth the visit. AAA discount is offered.

We spent a drizzly afternoon enjoying the Sealife exhibits. You could spend hours being entertained by the various seabirds and the sea lions. There are also interesting and educational exhibits as well as videos. Well worth the time and money.

After being disappointed with the lack of knowledge / interest shown in the birds on the kenai fjords tour, this was a wonderful surprise. A nice aviary for water birds , along with an underwater viewing area. Many other marine exhibits also.

Nice but more geared toward children. Interesting place - took us about 1 hour to go through the place.

A real treasure! There are numerous hands on activities and staff are helpful, knowledgable, and willing to educate at every exhibit! This is not your typical aquarium and it really focussed on Alaskan marine life, a real treat!
