About Seattle Aquarium, Seattle
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.

Very well maintained. Saw otters,octopus ,jelly fish and many more The diver talk is good too. We get to see a lot of fishes and sea organisms which we never knew existed. Can easily spend around 3 hrs A must visit
Went here for the first time during my trip to Seattle. It was a small to medium sized aquarium with a good array of different fish and sea life. The price for the ticket was a little pricey, but I still feel that I got plenty of fun out of my visit. The best part about the aquarium is, in my opinion, being able to touch the star fish, the anemone, urchins, and more. Plenty of cool photo ops as well, and the staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. I just gave it 4 stars mainly to the price of the ticket and the small size of the aquarium. I still recommend it for travelers if they have time in their itinerary.
The Seattle Aquarium has some nice features. The seals, sea lions and otters are great. The octopus is also great. It's clean, for the most part, and location, on the waterfront, is second to none. But, the aquarium just isn't very big and there's not a great many exhibits. Compared to other aquariums, particularly the one in Vancouver, BC, the Seattle Aquarium has some room for improvement. At $30 for adults, you don't get a lot for your money. If you're deciding between visiting the aquarium or the zoo, go with the zoo.
Paid $60 dollars for me and my wife to go here... For an aquarium literally sitting on the ocean it has a surprising amount of nothing... Flew here from Denver expecting to see an aquarium far better than what we have in Colorado. I left disappointed. We actually kept looking for hallways that we missed thinking that the 20 minutes we just spent meandering through 30 fish species couldn't have been all of it. We never found that extra hallway. $60 for twenty minutes of fish that you can see at any sort of exhibit that has fish was not worth it. The 3 sea lions and otters were cool but nothing to write home about. Also the exhibits had almost no educational material. If you want to learn do not come here. The gift shop was the most fun part.... Forewarning, if you're looking for a cool hoodie or t-shirt hopefully you're a woman because they don't carry apparel for men apparently.
Great place to take the kids for them to touch and feel sea urchins and star fishes. For the price you pay I was expecting more here but since I have kids and trying to think of what they see ...this is a pretty big place just for kids...as for me I would want more educational material and a lot bigger place to explore to feel that I've gotten my money's worth. Would be cool if it extend down under water into the puget Sound? Still a great place to take the kids.
