Seattle's natural beauty is made up of a lot of sea-life. The Seattle Aquarium brings out the best of sea-life showcasing Marine mammals, Octopus and Puget Sound fish exhibits. The Aquarium is also a learning center to promote conservation and caring for natural habitats of all marine life. An entire section is devoted to Sea otters, Seals; another section showcases birds from in and around the area. There is a shark exhibit too for those not faint of heart. The section that holds the most interest though is the touching pool area. It gives a wonderful opportunity to interact with creatures.
The globular exhibit of Underground dome holds a mesmerizing sight of local species of fish. You can join the aquarium staff to watch the regular feeding time at 1:30 pm every day. The aquarium divers also arrange shows to answer all your interesting questions about the fish. If you have children along, the little NASA Kiosks are very informative about different spaces and habitats of fish and coral reefs. You can easily spend a day at the aquarium and take back some souvenirs from the gift shop to always have wonderful memories of a day.

Staff are friendly and passionate, but this is not so much an aquarium as it is a series of small fish tanks. They do have seals and sea otters, a small area for birds and lizards - nothing you haven't seen before. Having experienced other spectacular aquariums around the globe, I cannot give this one more than 3 stars. Overall, an expensive 30 minute stroll, where you struggle to find something interesting to spend time on. Great for school trips and kids. Great contribution to wildlife preservation.
Beautiful, informative displays and marine habitats. Enjoyable for all ages. Admission is expensive but you can easily spend several hours enjoying the indoor and outdoor areas. Touch tanks with staff available to answer questions about sea life is a highlight. A 15- minute walk from the ferry dock.
The aquarium was def worth the price! About $50 for 2 adults and kids under 3 are free! We loves looking at the sea lions and sea otters. They have a large touch pool where you can touch sea urchins. They have really cool underwater rooms that's makes you feel like your swimming with the fish. And they do have one shark in the big underwater fish tank, you just have to find it :)
I was very impressed with this aquarium. They had clean and well lit tanks full of various wildlife. The sea lions were little show offs! I also recommend the dive show. It is geared toward children but still entertaining.
If you're planning on coming here with any intentions to learn anything then don't waste your money. It's just a big display case. There is very little signage or educational information. If you just want to get your kids out of the house then it may keep them entertained for an hour.
