Beach Naturalist program

Stroll along almost any local beach during low tide and you’ll see that the shore is alive!

The Beach Naturalist program runs on low-tide days throughout the summer and on select winter evenings. The amazing people who operate it are local residents who care about Puget Sound beaches and want to help protect them. More than 200 people have volunteered to help community members learn about and enjoy our shorelines. 

Every Sunday from May 28 through September 3, 2023

Members-only early openings

Seattle Aquarium members, join us at 9am every Sunday May 28 through September 3 to beat the crowds and experience the Aquarium as it’s just waking up! Non-member friends and family are welcome to enter early with you and pay for their admission.
