An Underwater Visit

I love the Puget Sound region. Living here we get the best of all worlds. Beautiful summers, colorful falls and lots of activities for the young and old. I haven't been to the Seattle Aquarium in years. Family from out of town was a good excuse to visit it. The Aquarium is the 9th largest in the U.S. by attendance and among the top 5 paid visitor attractions in the Puget Sound region. Opened in 1977. Expanded by 18,000 square feet in 2007 with $42 million of new exhibits, gift and food service as well as exciting meeting and event facilities.

The Aquarium's species collection is featured within six major exhibits: Window on Washington Waters, Life on the Edge, Pacific Coral Reef, Puget Sound Fish and Dome Room, Puget Sound Orcas Family Activity Center, and Marin.
