Located in the town of Seaside , this coastal aquarium is home to many sea creatures from octopus to sharks and eels. There is a petting tank where, if you dare, you can touch rigid starfish among other ocean attractions. Although the building looks a little weathered, it is still a great activity down on the "Prom" (Seaside's concrete boardwalk). So step into Seaside Aquarium to be amazed by the exotic aquatic world!

This was the highlight of our trip to the Oregon Coast. Though small, they had quite a few interesting specimens I had not seen in other aquariums. They had touch tanks for kids with sea cucumbers, sea stars, sea anemones, sea urchins, and even small crabs which the kids could hold; though the best part by far were the seals. Doing tricks for food. Some slap their sides while others splash. We had so much fun we are already planning our next visit back.
Oh my, this was a wonderful little aquarium. I was so pleased. Feeding the seals was a hoot and the marine life they had was amazing. Can you believe they had three giant pacific octopuses one was nearly 75 pounds. I asked a staff member about him she was extremely knowledgeable and egger to answer my questions. The best part was probable the staff so friendly and available it’s nice to have someone inside of the aquarium to answer questions.
for the seven or eight bucks it was per person to get in the whole place is the size of a two car garage, dark an dirty with no really interesting fish or otherwise. Filled with sea bass and otherwise ugly and boring bottom fish that you go fishing for for free. the seals are cooped up in this tiny seal bathtub and for a buck you can give them a fish,.. or you could just go to the beach and feed a hand full of them for free. if you want to go to a real aquarium than check out the Newport aquarium. it takes a little longer than twenty seconds to see everything in the joint...
Me and my son love the Seaside aquarium and vist every time we are in the area. Although it is small, it is charming and interactive. The boardwalk location can't be beat, and it is a wonderful family activity.
I really like the idea of a Privatley owned Aquarium becuse it is so much easyer to talk to the employees. We found the Aquarium smaller that the big monsters but was much nicer. We loved feeding the seals and watching them perform for us. Great place!
This was a very nice little aquarium. Informative descriptions and write ups on the displays were interesting. The seals are great. Some of the displays were uncleaned with dead fish in them. This was a bit strange.
The place may be small but you get a lot of bang out of your buck. It is quaint and has a lot of hands on for the kids and grown ups alike. The seals are entertaining. All of the other tanks are small but interesting and you can learn alot here. A definite must see.
I would expect an "aquarium" to be decent. But I am disgusted that the Seaside Aquarium stays in business. I visited with my parents, my wife, and my two children (1 and 3 years old). When we left we all felt sick.
When you walk in, the first thing is a seal tank/cage. There were about 25 seals in a shallow (2-3 feet deep) tank that was **extremely** cramped. The seals were all begging and fighting each other for food (fish pieces) that the customers could purchase and toss at the seals.
The rest of the small "aquarium" was almost as bad, with a couple disgusting exhibits of dead lobster and squid, a couple octopus in horrid conditions, and the rest of it just seemed like a sad petstore.
I love going to feed the seal. they were my favorit thing to do and I like going back just to feed them. They make my day. We haven't been down in 4 yrs. but we are thinking about going down again soon and that will be the first thing we do.
I miss doing that..
