Not the largest aquarium I been to. Not the flashiest. But definately one of the most unique. Where else can you listen to a quick lecture and Q&A conducted by a diver in the tank. The walk INTO the bay in a huge dome. An interesting collection of fish, sea mammals and birds. Also, you can see it in a couple of hours and leave entertained but not exhausted. Also many of hands on stuff to keep your kids (or grandkids) occupied. City Pass gives you admission and brings the price down when you include the other included admissions. Right across the street from the Pike Street Market.

Nice little aquarium right on the waterfront, close to downtown. Nice exhibitions by small. Aquarium has a lot of "cold water sea life" as well as some warm water exhibits. The lobster and the octopus was the most interesting to me.

I was wandering around Seattle and decided to pop into the aquarium. I was very glad I did. Nice displays that were very informative. I just wish I'd had more than an hour to spend here.

Great area with many attractions near by. Surrounded by shop and restaurants. Can walk from many hotels or drive w parking meters across Street. Enjoyed the sea lions

If you visited Vancouver aquarium, the Seattle one is not worth seeing. Better go to the Seattle Zoo - much more interesting.
