If you like sea life animals (mammals, fish and birds), then you will probably like this place. At $25, it isn't cheap. But the three tanks (sea lions, seals, and seabirds) are wonderful. You can see the tanks on two levels, one above water, and...More

We like to visit wildlife centers where ever we go. We liked the exhibits and animals especially the baby walrus. They have staff at various points throughout the center ready to answer your questions. We really enjoyed the behind the scenes tour with Joe.

Enjoyed all the sea lions and seals swimming around . Saw the puffins also swimming with the halibut, rockfish, cod, etc. A great place for families

We go to Seward every other year on vacation. We always set aside one afternoon to visit the SeaLife center. The exhibits are very good and the volunteers are excellent.

Had a wonderful morning with friends at the SeaLife centre. We have puffins at home but I'd never seen anything like the tufted ones and they come right up close to you and get you wet if you're lucky! There's also rescued baby walrus and...More
