Once the home for Keiko, the killer whale featured in the "Free Willy" movies, the Oregon Coast Aquarium has been redesigned to continue its mission. Watch sea otters, harbor seals, and California sea lions cavort in their artificial habitat. See tufted puffins and pigeon guillemots enjoying themselves in the aquarium's aviary. Sharks, skates, and other marine life are found in Passages of the Deep, a 200-foot underwater tunnel.
The Oregon Coast Aquarium is one of the most popular tourist destinations on the Oregon Coast, and in fact in all of Oregon.
