Tickets & Passes

In accordance with the new restrictions set forth by Governor Inslee, the Seattle Aquarium is temporarily closed to the public to help slow the spread of COVID-19 throughout our community. If you have previously purchased tickets to visit the Aquarium, please email or call (206) 386-4300.  

The Aquarium will continue prioritizing the health and safety of our staff, as well as the animals in our care throughout this closure, and look forward to welcoming visitors back through our doors as soon as it’s deemed safe to do so. 

Thank you for your support and patience during these challenging times.
