Alaska SeaLife Center Photos

August 22nd, 2011

The last stop of the sea part of the cruise was Seward. There, I went on an excursion to the Alaska SeaLife Center, an aquarium built in large parts with funds from the Exxon Valdez oil spill settlement. The aquarium was very well made, with a large section dedicated to rehabilitating hurt animals.

The aviary was especially cool, with birds hanging out only a few feet from the visitors with no barriers in between.

The SeaLife Center had an observation deck that overlooked Resurrection Bay. Outside, I saw a wild sea otter sleeping in the water.

The SeaLife Center was a good end to the ship cruise. At Seward, the passengers split up into separate ground tours, though many shared the same destinations. We were placed on busses that drove us to the train station. Thus began the ground tour!
