The only permanent marine mammal rehabilitation facility in the state, Alaska SeaLife Center is also an important research facility. The attraction is dedicated to education, and its public exhibit includes a touch tank where visitors can interact with living sea life. A grotto is home to seabirds, sea lions, and a giant Pacific octopus. Don't miss the preserved giant squid on display in the grotto area.

  • The tragic Exxon Valdez Oil Spill in March of 1989, poured something like 11 millions gallons of crude oil into the cold North Pacific waters of Alaska. The photos of sea birds and mammals coated in o...  read more »
  • All ages love it. There are lots of fish to see, sea lions, seals, videos, birds of the area and a touch pool. Leave lots of time as there is much to see! 
  • Great enclosures with great interactive opportunities. Not an all day stop but definitely worth a look in. 
  • 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 !
  • Surprisingly good for the small town that is Seward. It isn't up to the level of the Monterey Bay Aquarium or the aquarium in the San Francisco Academy of Sciences, but it's well worth a visit and it does good work rehabilitating injured sea creatures. The bird section was a great opportunity for up close viewing of some rare birds you'd never see otherwise.
  • While this is isn't the most extensive aquarium in the world, it is still solid with wonderful displays for some of the local sealife including a pair of adorable harbor seals, an enormous sea lion, and a great assembly of sea birds. My favorite are those puffins which you get to meet up close and personal in the aviary. This is definitely worth a visit if you are in Seward.
  • Very informative place about sealive animals and plants. To small place / livingquarters for sealions, seals and otters.
  • The Alaska Sea Life Center located on the shore of Resurrection Bay in Seward, AK. It is open until 9PM and is a great way to wind down the day. This is a small aquarium and educational center with a strong mission to rescue and rehabilitate marine wildlife. The touch tank is a great hit with children. Plan on spending 1 to 2 hours here.
