  • Such a great place! How often do you get to go into a ship converted to a aquarium? The tour guide answered all questions quickly and confidently. She was very knowledgeable on more than just things about the aquarium too. I was very happy with the size of the gift shop as well. All prices were fair and would highly recommend this place on your next visit to Crescent City.
  • Really cool tour! The family loved it! Lots to see and touch. Definitely worth going to. Staff was friendly and helpful. They gave an educated and insightful tour.
  • I really wasn't expecting much from Ocean World but I was pleasantly surprised. The gift shop had a lot of cool souvenirs, the seal show was awsome, the aquariums were interesting and I enjoyed the tide pool as much as my young children. It wasn't busy on a Wednesday morning. The place is small and I enjoyed the more personalized tours. The staff were all smiles and friendly. Brad was our guide. He was friendly and knowledgeable with a good sense of humor. I don't know how you'd price something like this. $40 seemed a little steep for the short tour to me but I'm glad we went.
  • This place was fantastic! Not a large aquarium, but it made the experience a lot more intimate in that sense. Getting to learn about the amazing animals they have there was a great experience. The trainer put on a great with the sea lions and harbor seals, and they're such adorable animals. Magnificent gift shop and an overall spectacular experience!
  • A small aquarium, but friendly staff and a decent your. The tide pool that allows the kids a chance to touch different animals was a hit. A fair value and worth 1 or 2 hours of your time.
