If you like sea life animals (mammals, fish and birds), then you will probably like this place. At $25, it isn't cheap. But the three tanks (sea lions, seals, and seabirds) are wonderful. You can see the tanks on two levels, one above water, and the other below water. It is great to see how agile the sea lions and seals are swimming under water. It is fun to see the sea birds land on the water. There are the usual aquariums as well. There is a fun gift shop as well.

Excellent! Visit here before taking any tour. You will be rewarded with an improved understanding of the tour experience. Great opportunity for up close and personal experience with wildlife you would probably not get this close to otherwise. This may be the best thing to do and see in Seward, and well worth it!

Make time to stop here for a couple of hours. Animals appear to be well cared for. Very educational and interesting.

This is a well designed and interesting center. I felt it was a bit pricey compared to other cities and attractions but it is for a good cause. The exhibits were well done, and the care they are giving the wildlife there also is very interesting. There was a baby walrus there during my visit that was being cared for and it was fascinating as well as educational.

We like to visit wildlife centers where ever we go. We liked the exhibits and animals especially the baby walrus. They have staff at various points throughout the center ready to answer your questions. We really enjoyed the behind the scenes tour with Joe.
