Where is Oregon Coast Aquarium?
The most famous inhabitant of the aquarium built in 1992 was “free Willy”, a killer whale and Leading Actor in a Hollywood movie.
But the Aqua Zoo on the south shore of Yaquina Bay is also worth a visit. The focus is on marine fauna off the coast. Sandy beaches and rocky coasts are shown from the lake side. Through the 60-Meter-long Basin, in which jellyfish float and sharks go hunting, a passage of glass leads, behind which the maritime Wonder World opens up.
