Aquariums and Marine Science Centers

Visitors can explore a great deal of the Oregon Coast's marine life by exploring tide pools, walking on the beach, or taking a charter boat trip. However, the greatest variety and the greatest concentration of such adventures can be found at one of several places on the coast where visitors can interact closely with marine life, living in an artificial environment, but one well designed to mimic nature.
