This was my second time to the ASLC and my husband’s first. It is very well kept aquarium. We really enjoyed the aviary room and watching the sea lion and spotted seals. The staff are all very knowledgeable and friendly.

The Sealife Centre is amazing - full of the most amazing exhibits in particular the bird sanctuary and seals. I did the 'Behind the Scenes' tour which was excellent.

I've gone down to Seward just to visit the Sealife Center. And I absolutely love that it's not a zoo, it's a rehabilitation center. I always learn something every time I go, and it's so awesome learning about how these people help the sea life...More

Contact the Alaska Sealife Center directly. I believe they have regularly scheduled behind the scenes tours, but probably do them on special requests also. The staff is very informative and available for questions.
