Don't let the seals barking from the inside persuade you to enter. This place is old and unkept. The space that the rescue seals are in is deplorable. Fish tanks are slimy and ancient.

It's very small and actually kind of made me very sad that the seals they do have don't have much room The fish they have are pretty cool. It's very cheap to go to it even if you want to feed the seals.

This was a small family-owned Aquarium located on Morro Bay. Super cheap to visit and the seal food was only $0.50 per container. This was one of our favorite things in Morro Bay. They have a real treasure in this little Aquarium!

This aquarium is nothing fancy. Its a small little bldg with a few seals, and 10-15 tanks with some fish. It's $3 to go in, and worth it! Kids inside really seemed to enjoy it. You can buy food and feed the seals. Its a...More

Too small and only 3 seals inside. The attached gift shop was good and helpful staff. Lots of pretty things to select from.
