Don't let the seals barking from the inside persuade you to enter. This place is old and unkept. The space that the rescue seals are in is deplorable. Fish tanks are slimy and ancient.

It's very small and actually kind of made me very sad that the seals they do have don't have much room The fish they have are pretty cool. It's very cheap to go to it even if you want to feed the seals.

This was a small family-owned Aquarium located on Morro Bay. Super cheap to visit and the seal food was only $0.50 per container. This was one of our favorite things in Morro Bay. They have a real treasure in this little Aquarium!

Too small and only 3 seals inside. The attached gift shop was good and helpful staff. Lots of pretty things to select from.

This is one of the darkest aquariums needing upkeep we have visited. Several of the tanks needed cleaning and the only saving grace is it seems the seals are okay with their area - but could certainly use more. Save your money and drive over...More

We have been taking our daughter here since she was young. I love this gift shop and small aquarium for families with kids because it's one of the last places on the Embarcadero that still has inexpensive souvenirs, entrance to the aquarium and sea lion...More
