Seattle Aquarium

Filled with more than 400 species of marine life, the aquarium is home to river and sea otters, harbor seals and the largest species of octopus in the world. Be sure to visit Window on Washington Waters, a 120,000-gallon exhibit with daily diver shows. Open daily 9:30 am-5 pm.

Highlights and Tips:

  • Just inside the aquarium, see the Window on Washington Waters, a 120,000-gallon tank with more than 800 fish and invertebrates from Pacific Northwest waters—see if you can spot salmon, rockfish and wolf eels. At 10 am, 11:30 am and 12:15 pm daily, divers enter the tank and will answer questions from the audience.
  • At the Life on the Edge exhibit find touch pools, where kids and adults can feel sea cucumbers, sea stars, sea urchins and more.
  • In the marine mammals area, watch a daily feeding at 11:30 am, 2 pm and 5 pm. The area is home to sea otters, river otters, birds and other mammals.
  • At the Underwater Dome, a 400,000-gallon tank filled with Puget Sound sea life, watch fish feedings daily at 1:30 pm.
