Discover Pier 60 at the Seattle Aquarium

No trip to the Seattle Aquarium would be complete without a visit to Pier 60, located just north of Pier 59 and accessible via a covered walkway. Pier 60 houses some of our most beloved habitats, including Marine Mammals, Birds & Shores and the Underwater Dome. If you’re looking for fun-loving seals and otters or a 360-degree view of familiar local fish, you’re in the right place!

Marine Mammals

Sea otters and river otters and seals, oh my!

Pier 60 features some of our most popular and action-packed habitats. Plan to stay for a while as you get to know these charming sea otters, river otters, harbor seals and fur seals—and learn how each species is unique! Sit back and enjoy harbor seals playing in their outdoor habitat—complete with haul-out space for them to bask on land. Marvel at the mighty northern fur seals as they effortlessly glide through the water. Laugh at the adorable antics of the sea otters. Catch the playful river otters romping on land and in the water. And if you time it right, you can enjoy one of our daily talks and animal feedings!

Choose your view—you can watch animals swimming and diving underwater, on the surface from a spot at the edge of the habitat or from a comfortable perch in our seating areas.

While you’re here, learn about the Seattle Aquarium’s long history with marine mammals. Our research and animal care impact not only the animals at the Aquarium, but also other zoos and aquariums and populations in the wild.
