Nothing fancy, but feeding seals & fascinating fish & exhibits satisfy!

As many times as I've been to Seaside, I never visited the Seaside Aquarium until now in its 75th year. Seeing people feed the seals from outside when on the Prom convinced us to... read more

We had so much fun at the Aquarium feeding the seals. There are also a lot of other sea creatures to visit, but feeding the Seals and watching them clap and dance for food is priceless!

As many times as I've been to Seaside, I never visited the Seaside Aquarium until now in its 75th year. Seeing people feed the seals from outside when on the Prom convinced us to buy tickets and spend $2 for herring. Boy, those seals know how to get your attention by splashing you, playing with a ball and the largest... More

The best part of this place is getting to feed the seals. It costs $2 extra for the fish, but it is well worth it. The seals will do ANYTHING to get your attention and they are adorable

This small aquarium was ideal for my 3 year old daughter, as she loved watching my wife feed the seals and really liked the touch tanks and the octopus tank. We spent maybe 45 minutes here and did 2 loops around the aquarium, which is basically one room. As an animal lover I must say the seals were in a... More

A trip to Seaside is not complete without a visit to the aquarium. The seals are so cute, and a blast to feed! I challenge you to stay dry!

We enjoy going to the aquarium with just adults to feed the seals. This time we were able to share it with our kids (4-1/2 & 1 yes old). Lots for the kids to see, touch and experience. It's small and just like a little town, it's a little aquarium but that is its charm. Love the seals, always fun... More

You can feed sealing, who slap the water to call your attention. There's a touching tank for the little ones and a guide to answer questions. It's small, really only about 1500sf to look at, so don't expect much, and it's cost reflects that. It was $18 for all three of us. Great little displays of a variety of fish,... More

Different than I expected but very interesting. Was very crowded with lots of children on vacation. Plenty of volunteers to assist you and answer questions. Wife was more interested in the exhibits than I was.

Nothing spectacular but informative. I have seen much better aquariums. Not worth the money and not clean.

Cute little aquarium to visit while in Seaside, It is not large at all, but good for small children to see fish, and to be taught about and experience the touch tide pools.
