Seattle Aquarium - Review

Seattle Aquarium is a public aquarium  located on Pier 59 on the Elliott Bay waterfront in Seattle, Washington, USA. 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 at aquarium in Seattle .

The 120,000-gallon Seattle Aquarium  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 Seattle Aquarium memories of a day.

Seattle Aquarium, Seattle Reviews

  • It was a great day to visit the waterfront Aquarium. I enjoyed so many at the exhibits, especially the octopus and the jellyfish displays. Though this was geared in a way for the children, adults enjoyed all the informational placards on the display along with all of the wonderful creatures and viewing areas. There was an amazing fish ladder display on one wall and sea lions, otters and puffins and other areas, and they all were fascinating.

  • Love this aquarium. When you first enter there is a massive floor-to-ceiling viewing area, where there is often a diver cleaning the glass. They are very friendly divers and interact with the children. Very fun to watch and my grandchildren love it. I buy a yearly pass so we can take our grandchildren. They have daily times that they feed the seals and the fish. Fun to listen to the caretakers talk about the seals and even see them brushing the seals teeth! A diver can be seen feeding the fish in the incredible viewing dome, where you are completely surrounded by water with amazing views of the fish. Hands-On fun for the little ones, beautiful waterfront setting, lots of fun for the family. Cafe upstairs has delicious food choices. There is also outdoor seating with a great view. There is a gift shop. Enjoy 10% off at the cafe and gift shop if you have an Aquarium membership. $2.00 off discount for Seniors 65+, persons with disabilities and active military. Open daily 9:30am- 5pm.

  • This aquarium is really cool and clean! The design is different and made it quite interesting. Touching some of the sea life and learning about them was so fun! Would highly recommend. We arrived right before opening and the line wasn't too bad. It took about 15 minutes to get tickets.

  • Awesome place to spend time at. Loved the view and the aquatic species. Various kinds of fishes were there. The guides are also pretty good. They try and explain everything in detail. Super helpful. Loved the birds and the view along with Penguins. Awesome experience!

  • I enjoyed this place very much. I saw everything I wanted to see except for the smaller otters. Still worth the visit either way! Kids will enjoy too. You can touch things and see so many wonderful animals and creatures. An absolute pleasure to visit here!
