You can still be delighted by the animals in our care, be mesmerized by our exhibits, learn about the marine environment, and take action to preserve Puget Sound and Earth’s one ocean—all while we’re temporarily closed to the public to curb the spread of COVID-19 through the community.

Each day we’ll highlight a different sea animal and activity, including a special performance of Octonauts: To Your Stations on January 4 at 11am and 1pm. Included with Aquarium admission; no reservation necessary. This event runs from December 26–January 5 and each day has a different animal theme.
