Just wandered in to see the octopus and met Alex who very generously shared his knowledge about the local sea life ... Fascinating! The man really knows his stuff. I left and starting thinking about other questions I wish I could have asked. I will visit again.

This place is small but has a few exhibits. I only stayed for about twenty minutes. There are multiple tanks with starfish, anenomes, shellfish and fish. There is a giant octopus in one tank as well and this was the highlight. I looked over the whale siting maps and read about the history for a little bit. They have some... More

Very good displays with very knowledgeable people to explain the animals. Lots of hands-on young and old kids.

We all walked in and we're fretting nicely and taken around all the tanks with the nicest and most informative gentleman we could have hoped for. He really knew about all the "creatures" in there and made our visit so interesting. A nice surprise!!

Heading into Port Angeles I noticed this little place in my AAA book. It said it was FREE after Labor Day so we figured we would stop in. When we arrived the front desk staff said they had changed their policy and it was not free. We were initially bummed, but paid since we had made the effort to stop... More

This is a very small marine science center, but that's its charm. I went with my uncle (2 adults) and spent an hour there with the volunteer. We learned a TON about marine life in the area. It's a great little center and would be appropriate for kids about ages 4-12. But pay attention if you have kids -- not... More

What I particularly like about the Marine Life Center is the hands-on tank in which you get to pick up sea stars, etc. It's a wonderful experience.

First, the $4 all day admission for adults is a great value. The aquarium pipes its water in from the harbor, so there are all sorts of sea creatures in the tanks. The three touch tanks were awesome! Volunteer Burt was GREAT! He put barnacles, plankton, and sea water under a microscope so we could see them. He knew so... More
