About Seattle Aquarium

Pier 59 on the waterfront of Seattle, Washington, is the perfect location for the city aquarium, which displays a variety of aquatic wildlife beside the infinite ocean of the American Pacific west coast. Seattle Aquarium is one of the most popular attractions in the state, and within the top ten largest aquariums in the country, having hosted over 22 million visitors in total. The Association of Zoos and Aquariums accredits Seattle Aquarium, for its ecological awareness, animal welfare and specific focus on the education of children, teaching them to respect natural ocean life.

There is a range of exhibits in the aquarium, including two exhibit pools, which allow visitors to see up close, and even touch the tide pool life, in the shallow waters of a reef environment native to the Seattle area. A cyclical glass container, which visitors can stand beneath, exhibits jellyfish moving in the water above, and beside it, there a display tank housing a giant Pacific octopus. Other animals in the aquarium include Northern fur seals, sea otters, tufted puffins, and native Puget Sound fish like sharks and salmon. Once inside, visitors are free to wander the aquarium at their own pace, but can also request a tour of the aquarium, or even hire the space for private events and parties.

Drivers travelling into Seattle from Interstate 5, the main highway in western Washington, can find Seattle Aquarium by following directions to Alaskan Way, or by simply heading towards the waterfront. The Metro Transit provides local buses that have stops within walking distance to the aquarium, and it is not very far to walk from downtown locations like Pike Place Market. Seattle Aquarium has parking nearby within the city, but provides a bike rack right outside its doors, to encourage environmentally aware transportation.

The aquarium opened its doors in 1977, initially owned by the Parks and Recreation department of Seattle, before becoming a non-profit organisation in 2010. The building underwent major renovations in 2007, expanding 1672 square metres to the aquarium and adding a new exhibit, a shop, café and fresh events space. Seattle Aquarium projects a single and simple message, inspiring the conservation of the marine environment, which it does through events, exhibitions, research and education.
