The next best thing to a tropical vacation, the South Pacific Aquarium features dozens of brightly colored tropical fish swimming in the 24,000-gallon Lagoon exhibit. Dive deeper as you explore the Blue Hole, where fish peek at you from their hiding places. Come face-to-face with five species of sharks as they explore their 240,000-gallon Outer Reef environment. Here, you can watch staff biologists feed the sharks.

turtleOur new Pacific Seas Aquarium opens this summer! From the enormous Baja Bay exhibit with green sea turtles and hammerhead sharks to Northwest Waters with Puget Sound animals like the giant Pacific octopus all the way to jellies, a kelp forest and the Tidal Touch Zone, it will be a state-of-the-art aquarium unlike any in the Northwest.

THE NORTH PACIFIC AQUARIUM HAS CLOSED

After 55 years of saltwater corrosion, it was time to  close the North Pacific Aquarium. The animals inside are preparing to move to their new home in the Pacific Seas Aquarium, and the building will be used temporarily to make room for more exciting new species there.


 

NOTE: Strollers, food & drink are not allowed inside the Aquarium.
