Description:

The Alaska SeaLife Center offers an unrivaled, up-close and personal experience with Gulf of Alaska marine wildlife. Witness a 2000+ pound Steller sea lion gliding past underwater viewing windows, puffins diving in a carefully crafted naturalistic habitat, and harbor seals resting on rocky beaches. Alaskan king crab, sea stars, and the Giant Pacific octopus also await you, as well as a whole variety of intertidal creatures and deep sea fishes.

The Alaska SeaLife Center is located at Milepost 0 of the Seward Highway in spectacular Seward, Alaska, just 125 miles south of Anchorage. You can reach Seward by road year-round, or via the Alaska Railroad or cruise ship during the summer season.

We are a private, non-profit corporation with approximately 105 full-time employees and dedicated staff of volunteers and interns.

Mission:
The Alaska SeaLife Center generates and shares scientific knowledge to promote understanding and stewardship of Alaskas marine ecosystems.
