  • This place is super small and in the words of my kiddo "it's kinda sad". It's not very maintained and pretty dark. The only thing liked was feeding the seals which was only 50 cents a bag. However the...  read more »
  • If these on idle time in Morro Bay and do not have anything else to do, it is an alternative to hang out... But is definitely not a walk to organize existing many aquariums in the route of the Pacific.

  • Feeding the sea lions is still a lot of fun and a very inexpensive way to to entertain the whole family 
  • Do not support this business! I've lived along the coast and sea lions do not howl like that unless something is terribly wrong. The facilities are poorly maintained and literally stink (go to the right of the building in the parking lot and take a whiff).
  • If I could give 0 stars I would. $3 Per person for a reason. My boyfriend and I immediately wanted to leave. Spent about 1 minute in there because my heart sank and I felt so bad contributing to their profit. Depressing and horrible for the animals. Definitely animal abuse. Not sure why they are allowed to keep animals here. Should continue solely as a gift shop NOT an aquarium. These animals should be moved to the Monterey Aquarium. Even the fish and starfish. The seals and sea lions have tanks about as long as their bodies. The environment is dark and tanks and animals look neglected. We immediately walked outside to leave this review. No wonder they don't allow refunds. Do NOT go into the aquarium. We were just walking around the area and happened to go inside. Seals sound distressed, not hungry. BOYCOTT or CLOSE this place.
  • A prison for sea lions and seals. Why would someone keep these beautiful animals imprisoned if you can enjoy watching them free right next to this horrible place?
  • Local biologists and animal lovers alike are calling for a boycott of this awful place before they can renew the lease in 2018. The conditions here are disgustingly inhumane, with tiny enclosures only big enough for the seals to swim in circles all day with no toys, companionship, or stimulation of any kind. They also grow fat because the owners allow people to feed the seals all day instead of feeding them the controlled diet they do need to thrive. This is more prison than aquarium. Please do not take your children here, there are much better places in Morro Bay to observe seals in their natural habitat, not locked in a shallow tank for us to gawk at. Do not support this business.
  • 3 stars doesnt mean not to go, 3 stars means its ok. It is $3 to get in and the $3 is a good deal. You get to see seals, and feed them, my 2 year old boy loved it. The gift shop is nice, I just am not that type of person. They did have some cool stuff, but I am not going to spend my money on it.
