An anemone that eats fish? What about one that lives for 100 years? We have dozens of white, orange and pink anemones in the enormous Northwest Waters habitat – see how many you can spot!

Inside Puget Sound
Deep, beautiful, cold.
Northwest Waters is a replica of the seascape you’d see underwater right here in Puget Sound – anemones, ratfish, rockfish, even barnacled pilings – all behind a massive glass wall.
Watch for divers!
(They live here too.)
Our Northwest Waters habitat is big enough that we need human divers to clean it and care for our animals. Meet and chat with our divers during our all-new Dive Talk experience.Dive Talks

Save our Sound
It takes all of us.
THE THREAT: Animals in Puget Sound face many human-caused threats, like pollution and overfishing. Chemicals and plastic wash down from our streets.
TAKE ACTION: The solution is in our hands. Reduce single-use plastic and find sustainable fish on the Seafood Watch app. And ask your favorite restaurant to commit to being ocean-friendly!
