Celebrate Octopus Week at the Seattle Aquarium

It's the Ninth Annual Octopus Week at the Seattle Aquarium! Get out of the house during President's Day Weekend and mid-Winter break. Head on over to the Seattle Aquarium to learn about one of the coolest creatures in Puget Sound - the Octopus! Highlights include:

Ø Octopus Blind Date on Saturday, 2/14 at noon. Witness what happens when sixteen arms, six hearts (three hearts each) and two giant Pacific octopuses meet on Valentine’s Day. Aquarium biologists set the mood with decorative hearts, roses and romantic music at the Octopus Exhibit. But it’s up to the octopuses to decide whether or not love is in the water!

Ø Live octopus release on Sunday, 2/15 at noon

Ø Daily hands-on activities for kids, octopus feedings and talks

Ø Meet the Octopus Expert, Dr. Roland Anderson, on Wednesday, 2/18 at 11:00am

Ø Divers swimming with an octopus in the new Window on Washington Waters exhibit on 2/17, 2/19 & 2/21 at 11:30am

Ø Ninth annual giant Pacific octopus census 2/14-2/16. Puget Sound divers are asked to search for and report all octopus sightings to Aquarium staff over the three day weekend.

For a ceph-love like myself, this would be a very romantic Valentine's Day date spot!

Hubba, hubba, who wants some octopus lovin?
