Great place for sea life
May 2021
The center is smaller than I expected. I went through it twice while I has there and got some great photos. The seals were cool but fast so hard to capture on film. Don't miss the octopus in the small dark room with the tank. The bird room gives you an excellent opportunity to take photos. One of puffins was building a nest. You could easily see this center in about 2 hours and get through it without missing anything. The gift shop is a must for souvenirs.

Nice Aquarium
May 2021
The SeaLife Center is a very nice aquarium. I think it is a good place for families and all the kids seemed to love it.

I was expecting to have the opportunity to learn more about Alaskan Sea Life. However, it didn't appear there were any 'tours' available. So, I was a little disappointed. Especially since my main purpose for going to Seward was this visit.

Educational, family/kid friendly
May 2021
This is a great kid friendly/family activity or for those who want to learn more about the history of Alaska's seas and sea life. This would be a great way to spend a couple of hours while it is raining in Seward (because it rains!). We wish we would have done this earlier in our trip, so we would have known more about the sea-life we were encountering while on the Kenai Fjords Tour or walking the coastal trail. Very informational. We enjoyed the seals at play, but the sea lion was being shy. There is also a touch and feel pool (star dish, sea urchins, etc.).

Reservations were "required" when purchasing online, but the next available time slot was 15 minutes after purchase. Note: We stayed at a bed & breakfast which supplied us with a discount code which is why we booked online.

When we entered, there was no line, so they were also welcoming walk-ins. Masks are required while on the property, and they do ask that you following social distancing guidelines (although not enforced). There is one way arrows mapped on the floors. All staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful.

Beautiful and Educational
Mar 2021 • Family
We had a wonderful time learning about some of the different animals here in Alaska. All of the staff were friendly and helpful, even gave us extra facts and names for the animals. Our oldest loved the aviary and touch tank and my favorite was the sea lions and the view from the deck. The young lady in the gift shop was so sweet and friendly and helped us pick out a perfect souvenir. It is such a difference when you visit an institution whose goal is conservation and education rather than profit. They are all doing a wonderful job and I am so proud to have this here in Alaska. Can't wait to go back.

We took advantage of purchasing our tickets on-line and skipped the lines, a must since the line can get long and only so many people are permitted at a time. Very clean, well organized facility. Very informative and hands on stations, well worth the stop.

Animals in captivity
Aug 2020
Before you pay almost 30 dollars a ticket, you should know there is no difference between this place and Seaworld- all the beautiful animals there are being held captive in tiny little bathtubs. It’s sad, depressing, and cruel. When I asked a worker about the huge sea lions being so confined in such a small place she said if they were released the “natives” would hunt them and kill them.

Wonderful experience!!!

We enjoyed the entire center several times during our trip. The "behind-the-scenes" tour with a Sea Lion was terrific. We all LOVED being so close to Pilot.

Was pretty cool
A friend and I went to the sea life center during our Memorial Day weekend trip to Seward and Cooper landings.

Seeing the puffins up close was pretty awesome and a Mew Gull kept swooping down at my friends head (she’s terrified of birds and I didn’t know it until after the fact) either way mildly entertaining.

The Alaskan sea crabs are massive and left me with a hankerings for some seafood!

Visit, donate, see puffins and sea lions close -up, and be a hero for marine conservation
Jun 2020
Have fun and do good, all in one visit! This is a great place to get up close looks at local marine animals, many of which visitors see on boat tours in the wild - but here you can learn more about the animals through the aquarium's exhibits, AND see them up close. The aviary is a particular highlight, you can walk right in and see puffins and other seabirds walking, preening and swimming only a few feet away. Wonderful opportunities for photos. Other animals that live here include harbor seals and Steller sea lions (the largest species of sea lion in the world).
The touch tank is also great - who knew different kinds of starfish could all feel so different?
If you have the time and money, the behind the scenes tours and animal encounters are absolutely worth the money.
PLUS the SeaLife Center is a world-class research institution and the only year-round marine mammal rehab center in the entire state of Alaska. Often they have seal pups or injured otters in, these rehab animals are not on public display but there are often cameras hooked up giving visitors a sneak peak at what they're up to.
The ASLC right now is desperately trying to raise enough money to keep their doors open this winter and survive the huge loss of income this summer due vastly decreased visitor numbers. Visit, donate, and be a hero for marine conservation!
