Seattle: The Aquarium

On this trip to Seattle, I got the chance to check out the Seattle aquarium for the very first time. While it may be a bit small, it offered a beautiful and enjoyable afternoon during a very drizzly day. Here’s some pictures of all the beauty and fun:

A very cool display featured in the Aquarium is a jellyfish tunnel. Slightly more accurately described as a large wheel, it is filled with a constantly moving school of jelly fish, swimming around you. The colorful lighting and up-close design really allows you to see the jelly fish, their composition, and how they move. It’s very hypnotic!

Another big feature of the Aquarium is an underwater dome that takes you beneath the Puget Sound to see the real sea life that dwells there. The Aquarium is deeply committed to working to preserve and support the natural sea life found in the sound, and uses the exhibit to raise awareness of the many species present.

Back above the water (and by far the most active inhabitants of the Aquarium) are the seals, sea lions, and sea otters. Very hard to capture on camera, unless they are catching a nap!
