When visiting the Oregon Coast Aquarium it's hard to figure out who's watching whom. Named one of the top 10 aquariums in the nation by Parade magazine, the Aquarium showcases over 15,000 animals, representing 500 species through indoor and outdoor exhibits including sea otters, seals, sea lions, sharks and an inquisitive octopus. They'll study your every move.
You'll love watching little Aialik, our newest and cutest sea otter, as he nuzzles, nibbles and plays throughout the day.
The Aquarium's largest and newest indoor display, "At the Jetty", features Coho and Chinook salmon, and spotlights the current issues that threaten their survival, highlighting the tremendous journey salmon make from streams to ocean and back again.
