Once in Seward as a stopover for the cruise liners or a destination by road you should invariably see the Alaska SeaLife Centre.A huge aquarium and rehabilitation centre this place offers a wide ranging view of Stellar Sea lion,harbour seal, giant sea octopus, barnacle,yelloweye rockfish,sea anemones and a host of other sea creatures.The displays in huge glass chambers are really magnificent and educative.Some added attractions are Puffin Feeding,Hand shake with octopus which are time slotted and expensive.There is an in house curio shop also.

Visited here as part of a sea&land tour from Celebrity.
Likes:
*interesting wildlife exhibits, especially the puffin exhibit.
Dislikes:
--the your we were on dropped us here for several hours, far more time than we needed. I'd plan on 1 hour at the most.
- there were many exhibits that we're just photos and reading boards.

The views are spectacular from the lookout beside the building.



Dislikes:

Perfect sized SeaLife Center with sensational bay views. The staff was eager to answer any question we had. Worth the admission and time away from the outdoor beauty Seward offers.

This is an excellent place to sea various types of sea life that exists within Alaska. It's an excellent place to take small children or adults visiting the area. Beautiful displays and a great place to learn about the sea life in the Alaskan waters.

If you love the sea this is a very interesting place to visit. It's a good way to learn about things that you might see up close and personal, not through the binoculars! There was a young walrus that had been injured and needed pretty constant feeding. The "sitter" spent the whole time with him. Cute to see their interactions....
