A little disappointed by the aquariums size. It is small, but my kids loved the touch areas. Feeding the seals is a wet experience.

What a neat little aquarium! The pricing was great, the staff was very knowledgeable. We loved the touch pools, octopus and feeding the seals was a favorite. Those seals had us all cracking up!

I believe it was $6.00 per senior and good all day! You can get a hand stamp and come and go as you please.

Also look for coupons in local travel brochures for one free tray of food. Like from the local outlet mall or for the city of Seaside itself. Or use your favorite search engine to find a coupon.
