We're Open And Safe

The Seattle Aquarium is open with timed ticketing and limited attendance, which means you’ll get up close to the animals and not other visitors. We've worked closely with local health experts to provide a safe and fun experience. We can’t wait to see you!

We’ve made some changes you need to know about before visiting:

  • ONLINE TICKETS MUST BE RESERVED IN ADVANCE for all guests, whether you’re a first-time visitor or a long-time member.
  • YOUR TIMED TICKET indicates your arrival window. There is no limit to how long you can spend at the Aquarium.
  • FACE COVERINGS/MASKS ARE REQUIRED during your visit. Exemptions to this order include babies/toddlers under age 2; anyone with a disability that makes it hard for them to wear or remove a face covering; anyone who is deaf and moves their face and mouth to communicate; and anyone who has been advised by a medical professional to not wear a face covering because of personal health issues. 
  • A ONE-WAY PATHWAY with clear physical distance markers will guide you through the Aquarium and help protect everyone’s health.
