The Oregon Coast Aquarium, overlooks Yaquina Bay near Newport’s historic bayfront, and showcases over 15,000 animals representing 259 species. Permanent exhibits interpret coastal and marine life native to the Pacific Northwest, including sea otters, sea lions, six species of seabirds and naturalistic displays of fishes and invertebrates. In Passages of the Deep, a series of tunnels stretch through 1.2 million gallons of seawater occupied rockfish, skates and over 100 sharks. Interactive, colorful displays of tropical fishes in the Sea & Me engage young children and their families in marine science through play.
