Seattle Aquarium
 The cold, dark waters around Seattle hide an abundance of marine life, from orca whales to giant Pacific octopus to otters and salmon. The Seattle Aquarium helps visitors access this rich underwater world without getting wet. The experience involves touch tanks, daily dive shows, and plenty of exhibits showing off the area’s sea life.
 
The Basics
Visitors to the Seattle Aquarium can view exhibits showing off animals like jellyfish, sea otters, octopus, puffins, seals, and an array of fish. You might plan your visit around a daily-occurring activity, such as octopus feeding, diver shows, children’s story time, and talks on various ocean science topics.
 
Visitors must purchase a ticket to enter, with discounts available for children, seniors, active military, and disabled visitors. A CityPASS card—a 5-attraction ticket that includes the aquarium, plus skip-the-lines entry—is also available. Or, see the aquarium along with other highlights in a short city tour.
