Facility:Oregon Coast Aquarium
Description:Trek along the rocky shores of the Oregon Coast Aquarium as sea otters, harbor seals, and sea lions romp among the rocks and in the water below. Enjoy the sights and sounds of tufted puffins, rhinoceros auklets, pigeon guillemots, and common murres as they frolic in the rocky pools and cliffs of the Aquarium's outdoor seabird aviary. Encounter sharks, rays, and other denizens of the deep as you immerse yourself in Passages of the Deep, the Aquarium's 200-foot clear underwater tunnel that snakes through three ocean habitats. And much, much more!

We have driven from Idaho just to go here many mnay times! It is a great field trip for either a group or a family experience. The displays change and then its time to make another visit. The art is a bonus! Make a day of it and stop by Hatfield Science Museum across the parking lot.

We had been in Oregon at an "unschooling conference" and we made a few stops along the way, and this was one of the best!!! So much wildlife to look at. It is a very beautiful place. The kids still talk about being there and seeing all critters.

We love aquariums and this one did not disappoint. Lots of varied displays and a mix of indoor and outdoor exhibits. The outdoor exhibits are mostly covered though so no worries if it's raining.
Lots of large tanks to view and a few hands on activities.
The crab exhibits were awesome-the biggest live crabs we've ever seen on display! It had the dome in the display that you could crawl under and see inside the display.
Nice touch tanks and knowledgeable volunteers.
Would definitely go again.
