Official State of Alaska Vacation and Travel Information


Wildlife Viewing  


Wildlife Viewing

The pristine wilderness of Alaska is, perhaps, the last vestige of thriving populations of North American wildlife. Where else can you see polar bears, bald eagles, blue and humpbacked whales, gray wolves, grizzly bears, orcas, lynx, moose, and hundreds of other rare and endangered species in their original and undisturbed natural habitats?

Select from Alaska's best wildlife viewing operators to plan a once-in-a-lifetime wildlife adventure!

Alaska SeaLife Center

Visit the Alaska SeaLife Center in Seward, Alaska, the only permanent marine mammal rehabilitation facility in Alaska and the destination to experience Alaska's marine wildlife!

While the Alaska SeaLife Center’s sea lion, octopus, and seabird exhibits remain visitor favorites, there is always something new.  A unique Alaskan ocean experience, the Center features Steller Sea Lions, Harbor Seals, Giant Pacific Octopus, Puffins and more.  While touring the Center visitors can explore world-class underwater habitats, research and marine animal rehabilitation facilities and book special, small-group Behind the Scenes and Puffin or Octopus Encounter tours.
