Drowning in Seattle (Aquarium)

01/18/2017

As one of the top tourist attractions in Seattle, this incredible underwater nature reserve opened it’s doors in 1977 and the sharks, clown fish, turtles and penguins are among its most-loved residents. The Seattle Aquarium is the ninth largest aquarium in the U.S by attendance and among the top five paid visit attractions in the Puget Sound region.

This was the first time I visit an aquarium and honestly, there’s something immeasurably enchanting about watching these creatures – some so unrecognizable from anything around us.


The Aquarium’s species collection is featured within six major exhibits: Window on Washington, Life on the Edge, Pacific Coral Reef, Underwater Dome, Birds & Shores and Marine Mammals.

While there, I learned about the existence of Spotted lagoon jellyfish – instead of having one mouth, like the moon jellyfish, these fish have eight.

I identified so many types of fish that I never even knew about. I loved every minute of that day, and the visit made me love the ocean more than I already did.

I found Nemo 🙂

We watched lady feed seals in front of us, while explaining what she was doing. It was fascinating to watch and very informative, making for an educational trip.

Regarding pricing, admission to the Seattle Aquarium is $24.95 for adults and $16.95 for youth (age 4-12), which isn’t too bad for a day of fun. You can pop in anytime from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and there are shows, animal feedings, and behind-the-scenes tours offered every day.
