Seal Life Centre - lots of exhibits and excellent interactive boards. Felt I learnt a lot. Also did Exit Glacier hike in the afternoon. Definitely a more challenging hike than the Tongass Forest one. You MUST have good footwear. Surfaces are uneven, rocky, gravelly. Don't do this hike if you have bad knees! Read Less

The Alaska SeaLife Center is a marvelous aquarium, especially if you have children. You can see native Alaskan sea birds, seals, sea lions and fish. The sea life is well-displayed in its natural habitat.

Unless you have kids, I'd avoid this place. It was small, with not many animals. The touch tank of anemones was good. We even took the Otter Experience, which was a MAJOR disappointment. We got to briefly watch two young otters from a monitor. We also got to watch through a heavily barred cage the trainers feed two young adult otters. It was very difficult to get a good view, much less a good photo. So sad. Read Less
