Oregon Coast Aquarium

On Sept. 11 we visited the Oregon Coast Aquarium, which is quite an amazing place! I expected it to be an all-indoor place with big tanks of various kinds of fish, but this is so much more! Probably the biggest attraction there is what they call Passages of the Deep where visitors go through a series of underwater walkways that look like tunnels through the ocean. Fish are swimming over, under, and around you, including leopard sharks. What a beautiful and amazing sight and experience!

What I found most enjoyable there was the outdoor exhibits with sea otters, seals, sea lions, and surprising to me, seabird aviary including different puffins, auklets, and guillemots. Watching the birds interact was probably more entertaining than anything else there! They were having some really intense and loud discussions among themselves and it was quite hilarious!
