Aquarium on the Seattle waterfront
Mysterious Dark Fish
Big Honking Blue Fish
The Seattle Aquarium contains many diverse types
of fish from all around the world. It is home to many
Northwest native animals such as seals, sea lions,
and otters.  Our favorite exhibits include the
underwater viewing dome, where you can watch
divers feed the sharks and rays; the touch tanks
with vigorous tidal action, where you can touch the
anemones, shrimp, and sea slugs; the glass ring
you can walk through as dozens of jellyfish
circulate around you; and the octopus tank,
occupied by the largest example of its kind in the
world out of the frigid waters of Puget Sound.

The aquarium building is set on a magnificent
location atop a pier jutting out into the bay with
views all around of the Seattle skyline, the Olympic
Mountains, and the Washington State ferries
crossing Puget Sound. Nearby is the waterfront
park and fountain, restaurants and shopping, and
the hill climb to the famous Pike Place Market.
