Alaska SeaLife Center

Get Up-Close to Marine Life in Seward

The Alaska SeaLife Center is a non-profit marine science facility dedicated to understanding and maintaining the integrity of the marine ecosystem of Alaska through research, rehabilitation and public education. The Center’s research facilities and naturalistic exhibits immerse visitors in the dynamic marine ecosystems of Alaska.  The SeaLife Center is located 3 miles from Miller’s landing, at Milepost 0 of the Seward Highway – 125 miles south of Anchorage.

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 star, and the Giant Pacific octopus also await you, as well as a whole variety of inter-tidal creatures and deep sea fishes.
