Yes, we’re open!

Now and always, the health and safety of our visitors and staff is our number-one priority. During the COVID-19 outbreak, we’re taking all appropriate measures and precautions in accordance with guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Public Health Seattle and King County, and the Association of Zoos & Aquariums.

Specifically, we’re providing additional hand sanitizers and disinfectant wipes throughout the Aquarium, particularly in high-traffic areas. Additionally, our custodial team is routinely disinfecting commonly touched surfaces, such as knobs and handles. You can help by following King County Public Health for the latest personal health and hygiene recommendations.

We hope this information helps you feel more informed as you make personal decisions for yourself and your family, and we thank you for your continued support of our mission of Inspiring Conservation of Our Marine Environment.
