Review of Seaside Aquarium

Worth an hour visit. The kids loved the seals the most...especially when they splashed Dad. Oldest daughter liked the hands on tidal pool exhibit more than the Monteray Aquarium which we eventually went to on this trip. Good job. Baby octopus was very cool to see. Quite a variety for a small aquarium.

we visited the seaside aquarium over this past spring break as a last minute addition to our trip to seaside. our kids, daughter-9 and son-6, absolutely loved the aquarium. it was their favorite thing that we did on our vacation. although the aquarium is pretty small, i thought that the fish that are there were really neat. there is also a coloring station inside as well as an area where you can feel star fish! i'd have to say that the highlight of the seaside aquarium for my kids was feeding the seals. highly recommended if you've got kids.

Nice little aquarium, had a good time feeding the seals. Nice little exhibits to look over, loved their etching table where the kids and adults can make etchings of the exhibits. They had a baby octopus on display at the touch pools it was fun to look at, also had a few big octopuses to look at as well. Wasn't too spendy so it's worth a trip to visit.

This was fun for the 10 year old even though we had been to the Newport Aquarium 2 days before. Feeding the seals was and is always fun to do and to watch.

Our entire family, three generations, visited and had just a super time despite the cold and rain. When you can see sea animals being feed, you forget to be cold. The grandchildren loved every part. The place is also beautifully landscaped.
