“A Visit to the Seattle Aquarium”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

I bet children would love to visit it, but for adults without kids it is not a good pick. The attractions are poor, except for the smiley otter, a wonderful furry swimmer we loved so much! Also, as it is at the Waterfront you can enjoy the Great Wheel (marvelous) and a visit to Pike Place Market, a very attractive and crowded place that you cannot miss!

“Seattle Aquarium”

I really enjoyed the attractions,if you have time to tour it make sure you have enough time to do it. You can also watch the ferries docking and going across the bay.

“Very Entertaining!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

You don't loose too much time into this since it is in the Waterfront, just below the Pike Place Market. It is definitely a must in Seatlle.

“Fun for kids at the waterfront.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

We took our 3 and 5 year old grandkids and they had a ball looking at sea life from the Puget Sound. Don't get me wrong, this does not compare to the fabulous aquarium at Monterey, California which is probably the world's best. But it's not expensive and is worth the money. Pretty good seafood restaurants nearby make this a fun afternoon for the family.
