We spent 2.5 hours here. There was so much to see. We learnt so much. A must place to visit! There are so many helpful staff on hand to explain things. Great place to bring kids.

The SeaLife center seems to be set up as much for education as for seeing wildlife, with a fairly limited array of creatures. Perhaps better for families than adults, but a reasonable way to spend a couple of hours.

Great place to visit and explore!! We saw the recently rescued baby walrus being cared for and acclimated; puffins, sea otters, and jelly fish. Cute seals and seal lions can be viewed from inside and outside the Center.
