A great "take it easy", 2-3 HR activity in Seward. The key exhibits include multi-level exhibits (above & below water) for seabirds, harbor seals, & sea lions. Amazing how large sea lions look under water!!!

I love the SeaLife Center. I come at least three times a year. I never get weary watching the sea life. I HIGHLY recommend taking the Puffin tour. Educating and fun!

This was a unique sea life center that helped teach us a little more about the animals of Alaska. It is great for both families and friends. Also great for children. You get to touch sea animals!!
