Holding over 6,000 gallons of water in a variety of aquarium exhibits, SEA Discovery Center highlights life from the waters of Liberty Bay, local lakes, and the greater Puget Sound. Amazing invertebrates and fascinating fish from a variety of nearshore ecosystems wait for curious minds to explore! 

School Groups

Beginning in Fall 2022, SEA will offer on-site marine science classes for grades 3-5. Tours and educational programs for all age groups can be prearranged based on availability. Please email us at SEA@wwu.edu to learn more or to schedule class or group. 


Volunteers play an integral part in SEA’s role as an aquarium and community science center. Volunteers give their time, experience, and curiosity and gain many benefits in return including specialized training in marine science, volunteer-only events and connections to other marine enthusiasts.

Special Events

Throughout the year SEA will host special events including exhibit openings, donor receptions, community celebrations, movie nights, educational lectures and more. Please check back for announcements about planned events.
