A good way to see and learn more about some of Alaska's amazing wildlife. I especially enjoyed watching the birds "fly" underwater. On my second visit my timing was between feedings so not much action, on my next visit I will pay more attention to that.

A well put together aquarium/ museum. The SeaLife Center is super informative and a must see if you are in Seward--it is also a guaranteed way to see sweet sea lions, seals, and birds of all sorts!

It was very nice to be able to see sea life up close. There were even underwater animals that you could "pet". That was really neat as well. The center is a little small for the entry fee but I am glad we got to see it anyway.

A nice but small attraction at the south end of Seward. This was my second visit to the SeaLife Center in 14 years. The center did develop in a positive way since my last visit and for those unfamiliar with Alaska sea life it is quite informative and somewhat entertaining. The center does include a snack bar which is convenient... More

This is not the typical aquarium . . . hands on aquatic touch tank; interactive informative games not only for kids but adults; puffins/sea birds; sea lions; and much more. An upbeat fun time for the entire family.

I loved seeing all the birds and Stellar sea lions. This place is a great way to learn about the local animals. They also have the artwork of an amazing local artist!

We enjoyed visiting the SeaLife Center. It's a bit smaller than a lot of the big aquariums, but they have very nice exhibits and nice places to sit and watch the big glass viewing areas to see the fish, birds, seals and sea lions. We really had a good time.

A must-visit place in Seward. Excellent static exibits, but the stars of the show are the sea birds, the otters and the sea lions. See them here in beautiful mini-habitats. The bird exhibit allows you get up close and personal with the delightful guys. You can view them above water and below water...puffins rule!

I have been to many great aquariums so I was not overwhelmed. However,it is nice and the families I saw were having a grand time. I took the behind the scenes tour which was interesting. They do a lot of research and rescue work.

We had some extra time on our second and last day in Seward, so we decided to check it out. It was a very enjoyable visit....We got to see some puffins up close, and then see dive and swim in the deep water in the huge tank they have. That was fun! We probably spend a couple of hours there... More
