Abbott Oceanarium

The Abbott Oceanarium immerses you in the vibrant coastal ecosystem of the Pacific Northwest. As you stroll along the coast, encounter beluga whales, Pacific white-sided dolphins, sea lions and sea otters. You’ll also find a host of fishes and invertebrates that make their homes where freshwater flows into the ocean or where tides turn seascapes to landscapes and back again each day.

Take a seat and catch Shedd’s aquatic show in the Rice Ampitheater, or check out Polar Play Zone, a place to learn through play for our youngest guests.
