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.

Seattle Aquarium, Seattle Reviews - Write a Review

  • This is easily one of the top aquariums I have been to. It's very interactive and educational. They have a lot of different wildlife and you could really spend hours there with how much there is to see. The set up is nice and the employees are great as well. You can tell that they love their job. A great environment for kids. This is a place the whole family can enjoy!

  • Great place for the kids, interactive touch pools, plenty of fish, and an underwater dome that my love to go in and look at all the fish swimming above them. It's not the largest aquarium I've ever been to, but it's just long enough that it's perfectly timed to my kids attention span. They do activities for kids year round and special things for the holidays like pumpkin carving in October and holiday stuff in Dec. It's on the pier so after you are done there is plenty to do. If you plan on going more than once a year, I recommend a membership as it will pay for itself after 2 visits. The best parking is right across the street in the parking garage and if you are a member of the aquarium, you get a discount to park there.

  • Great place to spend a few hours with the family. Lots to see and well kept building, tanks and exhibits. The staff is friendly, parking is a bear but it's Seattle! If you get the chance to enjoy lunch there I would recommend it. They have a good selection of food and beverages to include coffee! Amazing salmon tanks and octopus tank. Also wheelchair accessible.

  • I may be biased, as I have been to some great aquariums over the years (Atlanta, Tampa, Boston) but this is a nice little, local style aquarium. No big fish like Sharks or whales, but otters and seals were cool. All in all, its small, but well put together. Staff is warm and knowledgeable.

  • Was hesitant about going here just to see fish in tanks like always. It was actually the best aquarium that I've been to! Super fun interactive pools where you got to touch and play with starfish, sea cucumbers, and more! The staff was great and very informative about everything!
