I've been here numerous times and there's always something to see and do. They have different exhibits for kids and everyone there is so knowledgeable! Well worth the visit.

We heard there was a baby Walrus that was saved and on the mend at the SeaLife Center. It was adorable to watch. There are many exhibits to see and it was worth the stop and visit. I highly recommend especially if you have children.

Loved seeing all the animals and knowing that they were well taken care of especially the rescued ones. My 9 year old nephew just couldn't get enough of the all the baby animals. This was a beautiful facility.

The highlight for the kids was the boat at the beginning of the SeaLife Center. The displays and information were well designed and informative. We went with the entire family and everyone enjoyed the day.

I am typically not a fan of this type of attraction or zoo's because I feel the animals are not in their best habitat. However, if the animals are hurt or abandoned as babies, I guess this is an okay thing. There were feeding activities...More

Don't believe the hype. Not much to see or do. Boring! But they help conserve wildlife. I would give money for that.
