Underwater Dome

Be surrounded by Puget Sound's sea life!

Step through a short tunnel and into our one-of-a-kind undersea dome with a 360º view into a 400,000-gallon habitat, filled with hundreds of fascinating Puget Sound fish!

In the Underwater Dome, our largest habitat, you’ll experience a beautiful, ever-changing snapshot of life in Puget Sound. See schools of silvery, open-water salmon flash in the filtered light from above. Large lingcod lurking around underwater reefs with sharks swimming past and brightly colored deep-water rockfish hovering near crevices. Large sturgeon prowling the bottom for leftovers. Skates banking upward against the current. A live, seasonal kelp forest. And more!
