Owner description: Home to an amazing variety of sea life to teach children and adults about the wonderful ocean world. We are one of the best privately owned small aquariums in the United States and are open daily! Our gift shop provides unique nautical gifts for men, women, teens, and children as well as hand crafted products that enhance any home decor. We're located six hours north of San Francisco, in beautiful Crescent City, California. Ocean World is your Pacific getaway in the heart of the Redwood Coast.

Only been there once and won't return.
Small and boring not worth the money you
Have to pay. Not to mention they make you enter
Through the gift shop, need I say more

We enjoyed our visit to Ocean World. We moved to Oregon from San Diego, so we know good critter-watching venues when we see them. One thing that impressed us was that we could get much closer to the seals & other animals than was possible at other places we've been, like Sea World. Our visit was unplanned & fairly brief , but quite interesting & enjoyable, & I hope we can return some day.

This is an interesting exhibit, but keep in mind the quality commensurates with the town size. None the less, it still has some interesting things to see.

Lots to see & is interesting as well , like anything from the Sea, we had a good time for sure! As we drove to whole coast line of Cali up to Oregon, the views were beyond compare, have done this several times, never get tired of it,but it takes a long time, you must drive the 101 & the old 1 hwy if you want all the EYE CANDY!
