I have now been to this aquarium several times. It's located right in the heart of tiny Seaside, Oregon. This place is charming, but if you can't appreciate the shabbier side of a Coastal beach town than you will be disappointed. This place it not a glitzy, big-city aquarium. That being said, it is wonderful and wholesome, and carries above... More

This was a fun little aquarium. The kids enjoyed it and it is definitely a seaside must see. We were glad we went, but one time is enough.

We save the Aquarium visit for a rainy day and it always is a hit. Feeding the seals is the highlight! But be warned you will get splashed by these eager fellows. My 5 yr old loved the individual tanks, petting pools and octopus.

Overall the aquarium isn't all that impressive, but the seals make it worth the visit. I love feeding them and seeing them interact.

We have visited this attraction before and it never fails to both entertain and provide us with educational earnings. If you are with your children or grandchildren, it is a must see.

I won't even try to tell the very cool history of this place, you'll just have to go yourself, but I promise you won't regret it! The touching tank was super cool and the Octopus was unbelievably up close and fascinating! Highly recommend!

The best part of this aquarium is the seals. The seals are full of antics from slapping their fins on the water to splashing you, while editing for their treat. The cost is $8 for adults or $27 for families of 6 or less (we were a party of 5 adults and we still only paid $27 for all of... More
