Take a dive into the Seattle Aquarium!
August 6, 2012
Having a hard time dealing with the scorching heat the past few days?
Take shelter from the sun and come on down to the Seattle Aquarium!
There’s all sorts of awesome animals and creatures to be seen here. You can watch the divers feed Squirt, the giant Pacific octopus, or you can get up close and personal with the sea life that live in the Puget Sound tidepools!
There are also, of course, the marine mammals that live at the aquarium. Did you know that there are only 10 Northern fur seals in zoos and aquariums in the United States – and two of them live right at the Seattle Aquarium? Come check them out! They are a ton of fun to watch. If you come in at 11:30am, 2pm or 5pm, you’ll be able to enjoy one of their daily talks and animal feedings with the marine mammals.
There are also daily dive shows that take place right at the entrance to the aquarium. The exhibit is called Window on Washington Waters. It’s an exhibit that has more than 120,000 gallons of water in it and it is filled with more than 800 fish and invertebrates that are indigenous to the Pacific Northwest waters. Divers will dive into the water and answer your questions 3 times a day – 10 am, 11:30 am, and 12:15 am. Don’t miss out on the chance to see this in action!
The aquarium is open daily from 9:30 am to 5 pm. They also have special events and update their Facebook followers frequently. Follow them to stay informed! Now, come on in and enjoy the waters!
