Get up close and personal with Seward’s starring local inhabitants at the Alaska SeaLife Center, a premier public aquarium in Seward and the state’s only permanent facility for marine mammal rehabilitation. Situated on the shores of Resurrection Bay, the SeaLife Center is dedicated to studying and understanding Alaska’s marine ecosystems while also promoting proper stewardship of the state’s natural resources. The center’s exhibit features a touch tank where visitors are encouraged to touch marine invertebrates like sea urchins and sea stars. Meanwhile, the center’s gem of an aviary features a two-story diving pool and a great variety of seabirds to watch. Popular exhibits also feature harbor seals, giant Pacific octopuses, and Steller’s sea lions. Other notable exhibits are those housing the important fish of Alaska like the sablefish, halibut, and salmon. Let’s not forget the king crab exhibits either!
