  • Seward is a very small tourist town. The aquarium is a must see here. 1.5 hour is enough to look around in the aquarium. I especially like the sea birds, and salmon display  more »

  • Very cool place, when I was there, there was a huge sea lion, the size of which, blew my mind. Very cool place to visit. They have a bunch of displays of with live specimens from the Bering sea, they also have some large pools for sea lions, and exhibits for water birds and such. It was worth the visit for sure.
  • Had a great time here. Had very impressive displays for the marine life. Love the bird area. My 2 year old had so much fun and didn't want to leave. The staff was very helpful if you had any questions.
  • Loved it. Very unique aquarium. Tickets are insanely expensive, like the rest of Seward. However it was a part of our package and so it was included. Exhibits are great and the petting zoo for marine life is awesome. Must visit !
  • Fantastic aquarium and workouts center focusing on the local wildlife of Alaska. Specializes in taking care of injured animals and offers behind the scenes tours. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Highly recommended.
  • Worth visiting to see Alaskan Sea life at one place. Very well maintained and informative. Feeding Alaskan Sea birds was quite unique.
