Though screaming kids throng the Underwater Dome whenever scuba divers feed the reef sharks and rockfish (1:30 pm daily), this excellent aquarium on a pier overlooking Elliott Bay is a favorite with adults, too. Neither can resist the antics of the playful otters in residence, and the indoor tanks feature a dazzling menagerie of jellyfish, sponges, anemones, fluorescent sea horses, and a live Pacific coral reef. The aquarium is also strong on regional exhibits, which include Washington tide pools, a few shorebirds and diving birds, and—perhaps coolest of all—a giant Pacific octopus from Puget Sound.

Open daily 9:30 am to 6 pm (last entry at 5 pm).
