We decided to explore Seward and have breakfast in town. Instead, we stumbled upon this 2 story high building situated on the shores of Resurrection Bay.
Apparently, besides the gorgeous Resurrection Bay and the spectacular Kenai Fjord National Park, The Alaska Sealife Center is another well-known attraction.
Built in 1977 mainly by funds from Exxon Valdez oil spill fines, this center is a non-profit organization dedicated to understanding and preserving the integrity of Alaska’s rich seas and diverse sealife and was in fact designed to combine research with public education.
Alaska’s only aquarium and ocean wildlife research center houses live animals in a
naturalistic habitat and allows visitors close encounters with
The interactive exhibits help visitors understand and appreciate the essence, operations and findings of current and ongoing projects.
It was truly an enjoyable and informative visit. When in Seward, don’t skip this very impressive center or miss out.
