Self-guided walking tours wind through exhibits that showcase Alaska’s marine life, such as harbor seals frolicking in a 90,000-gallon habitat, rockfish and anemones moving along the rocky cliffs of a kelp forest, and puffins diving into the waters of a 105,000-gallon seabird habitat. Children 12 and older are considered adults, and those 3 and younger are admitted for free.
Alaska SeaLife Center
Dedicated to studying and rescuing the animals of Alaska’s unique marine environments, the keepers of Alaska SeaLife Center facilitate encounters with marine life at an array of exhibits. Integrating the terrain of Resurrection Bay, the exhibits give guests an up-close view of animals at their most natural. Harbor seals sun themselves on the rocks, 2,000-pound steller sea lions glide ballerina-like through the water, and a giant Pacific octopus gestures with all eight arms during a solo rendition of “Y.M.C.A.” Alaska SeaLife Center’s veterinarians also work behind the scenes at the I.Sea.U, a refuge for rescued marine mammals that has helped rehabilitate otter pups, walrus calves, and beluga calves.
