The aquarium is super small and overpriced considering what it includes. There is a fun little space to feed the seals, but that's about it. Might be impressive for small children, but wouldn't take older kids as I think they would find it boring.

Nice aquarium with a good variety of different animals. The staff is knowledgeable. You can purchase food to feed the seals. We saw the staff feed the seals. It is a lot of fun. Centrally located near the beach. Good experience for kids.

Love visiting and feeding the seals. They do lots of tricks. Also visit the rest of the aquarium to meet an octopus or touch a seastar. Learn about all the cool life in the beautiful ocean at Seaside.

A very rustic aquarium that is somewhat small and in need of a bit of attention but the seals make-up for that... Not a very large collection but certainly worth a look.

I believe it was $6.00 per senior and good all day! You can get a hand stamp and come and go as you please.
