February 14–24: Wrap your arms around Octopus Week!
Join us to learn about one of the coolest creatures in Puget Sound, the giant Pacific octopus. Each day will feature hands-on activities for kids, octopus feedings and talks. A few highlights:
Thursday, February 14 starting at 12pm: Octopus blind date
See what happens when 16 arms, six hearts (did you know octopuses have three hearts each?) and two giant Pacific octopuses meet on Valentine’s Day. Aquarium biologists will set the mood with decorative hearts, roses and romantic music at the Octopus exhibit. Will the octopuses decide that love is in the water? Join us to find out!
February 16-18 & 23-24 at 12pm: Divers swim with an octopus in the Window on Washington Waters exhibit
