This aquarium was right by our hotel and right off the Prom. Our hotel had a coupon for free food to feed the seals. Funny creatures! Watch out though, they splash you if you don't feed them quick enough. It was small, but had enough displays to see and enjoy. I looked at their website before going so I knew... More

We've been going to Seaside for quite a few years and last year we decided to peek into the aquarium. It lived down to my expectations: poorly lit, damp, antiquated displays and worst of all a seal cage (more like a jail for these sentient mammals). Only bright point is a view of some unusual sea creatures, but these can... More

Right on the beach, this aquarium has seals that you can feed, and they all have unique personalities! Interactive touch pool as well inside, as well as other unique Pacific sea life.

This is almost cruel... small everything! "feed the seals," more like have children chuck food in a bucket! I would pass on this!

Not very big but great for the kids. Lots of sea life to see in wall tanks. They offer a small supervised hands on area. Live octopus to see up close. You can feed the sea lions.

I love the aquarium and worked at the Seattle aquarium and maybe my expectations were too high. The exhibits were really small. The man running the tide pools complained that he wasn't supposed to be working that day and the harbor seal seemed like a lot in a little pool. But like I said maybe my expectations were too high.... More

Family ran, awesome spot for kids to see. Never been closer to seals and octopus, the young man answering our questions was very kind. He must have heard these same questions a million times but he was still very accommodating.

Small and a little seedy, but worth the time of your kids need something to do. Octopus and feeding seals are the best parts.

This is a tiny aquarium but has some nice hands on exhibits and an option to feed the seals which was fun. The Octopus was really active.
