It was a rainy day, so it was a great place to go to stay dry. Well done. I would go again. Excellent wifi connection!

We spent a few hours looking at all there is too see and we are not sorry we did. The kids will like the sea lions and seals.

I just spent 4 hours just mesmerized by this wonderful research and rehab center. If you choose to go, definitely do a background tour. I can only imagine the sea lion experience would be over the top! These guys are so playful and kept my attention for at least a good 45 minutes. You can watch them from outside as... More

It was a a great place! Their research is amazing and all their animals seem very happy. We did the marine mammal encounter which was fun, but I would say it was a little pricey for the experience. Our guide, Leah, was very knowledgeable and gave us a great experience. We got to go behind the scenes to see the... More

This is a beautiful place to visit. You could easily spend several hours if you have the time. We had made arrangements to do the puffin feeding. What fun! The little guys would come right up to you for the fish. Even tried to steal the rubber glove holding the fish. Would love to go back.

The town of Seward doesn't have much to offer other than the surrounding beauty. This place is easily the best place to take your family while you're here. Not the best aquarium that I've been to, but very educational and a good opportunity to see the local wildlife.

The Sea Life Center is very nicely arranged, has tons of interesting exhibits and offers an opportunity to sea seals & puffins up close. A great way to spend an afternoon.

There isn't too much to see here, but it was nice to see the sea lions and seals swimming around. Our favourite part was definitely touching starfishes, anemones and sea urchins. It was a great novelty. Fun to do and doesn't take very long.

My favourite was the seabird exhibit. Also the behind-the-scenes tour was very interesting and good value.

We really enjoyed our visit to the Alaska SeaLife Centre. We were mesmerised both looking down upon and then up through the water towards the Seal Lions and the Harbour Seals as they played in their tanks. We watched them for a long period of time and at times we had the areas to ourselves. Being able to walk into... More
