    Pretty small but so worth it just for the seal show. The staff was really nice and you could really tell they love their job and animals!  more »

    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.
