We became members of the Sea Life Center when we had our little girl. She has enjoyed it since she was only 4 months old. She loves to look at the fish up close and really enjoys the birding area with all the sea birds. We know she will learn a lot from all the displays as she gets older. We go at least once each time we are in Seward--sometimes 2 or 3 times!

I am a homeschool parent and the Sealife Center is always part of our curriculum every year. The staff is knowledgeable and shows a passion for their work that makes you want more. My seventh grade son is wants to go to school for marine biology and he always has a list of questions when we arrive. The staff takes their time and explains all answers in detail. We have lived in cities where there were bigger centers but have learned that bigger is not better. The Seward Sealife Center continues to strive for an excellence that always exceeds our expectations.

My wife and I have enjoyed visiting the Alaska Sea Life Center for years. Since moving to Anchorage we make the trek at least four times a year. The first part of the experience is the drive. It is just incredible.

Once at the Sea Life Center you find all of these amazing exhibits.
Almost anything you want to see is there, and you will find some surprises as well.

The staff is awesome. Always ready to help and answer your questions. I am sure they hear the same questions time and time again, but you would never know it. Very friendly and cordial.

The Seward Sea Life Center is fabulous. My young children still remember a great deal of what they experienced in the hands on setting they offer. Tide pools with sea life to touch. Touchable exhibits. The life cycle of salmon, etc. A great way to learn more about Alaskan/Arctic wild life.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the education of children. Our school takes a yearly field trip there and we go there as a family to educate guests visiting from the lower 48.

I wouldn't change a thing. They truly love our wildlife and it's preservation.

My family and I spent a very enjoyable day at the Alaska SeaLife Center -- the exhibits appealed to the adults and kids and taught us a lot about conservation efforts, sea life, and rehabilitation efforts -- in a very fun and engaging way. We were mesmerized by how close we could get to the animals and birds - please save time just to observe! It was the highlight of our visit to Seward and I'd recommend it to everyone -- don't miss it!

The Sea Life Center is a great place to go on a rainy day in Seward or a cold day in Seward, matter of fact-it's a great place to go any day in Seward. I love watching the puffins swim underwater or Woody come darting past the big window or the touch tank.
And the human educators are very
helpful, as well.
it's a fabulous place for the family and we are lucky to have it in our small town.

My kids and I love roaming around the Sealife Center. Lots to see, do and explore. We learn something new every time we visit. The staff is great answering our questions. We especially love the outdoor bird exhibit and the touch tank. And the giant octopus! And the king crab and bottom fish! We also like hearing about the rescued animals.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've learned a lot about marine life and our changing climate and ecosystem. We see the success stories of rescued, rehabilitated and released animals.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Provide more in-depth signs explaining the exhibits. For example, more information about the different animal species (life span, diet, mating habits, etc.), and more information about each specific animal on exhibit (name, age, personality traits, where it came from).

The Marine Science Center in Seward is one of the Highlights of our Alaska Tours. We send about 150 of our guests through here each season. The knowledge of the staff and their willingness to share their obvious dedication to the animals and inhabitants of the Alaskan waters is evident everywhere. The facility is clean and the signage is very informative to both the casual visitor and the more informed. The layout of exhibits helps the visitor understand the relationship of the animals to the environment. We have taken the behind the scenes tour and backstage is clean and well cared for, as well. Very fun, educational and informative.
