These exhibits, some of our most popular and action-packed, are home to a fabulous assortment of charming and entertaining marine mammals. Plan to stay for a while as you get the chance to meet one or more of our gregarious playful sea otters who love making friends! Or perhaps you’ll find yourself bonding with adorable river otters that are always up for playtime fun? If you are lucky you might get to see an otter pup or an otter training. The harbor seals like their lazy days in the sun but don’t worry—our playful fur seals will have quickly separated themselves from any other seal at this exhibit once they see all those balls waiting for them, so grab your camera because it’s guaranteed these guys won’t disappoint.
Stroll along the shady paths and explore our exhibit to see all sorts of exciting animals. You can watch them swim underwater, on top of the water from a spot at the edge, or while sitting in one of our comfortable seats! Watch as they play around, eat, groom themselves into perfection before going for their daily talk and animal feeding show – it will be an adventure you won’t forget any time soon!
Don’t miss out on the Seattle Aquarium’s newest exhibit, where you’ll get to see three harbor seals! You can enjoy your time with a great view of these friendly creatures from their habitat. The pool is perfect for them, and they also have plenty of space inside so visitors won’t be in the way too much. They even offer seating up to 100 people, which means everyone will definitely find themselves a fabulous spot!
The researchers don’t just work with the animals at the Seattle Aquarium, but populations in the wild. They have distinguished themselves as a top facility with innovative, cutting-edge breeding programs for different animal species!
