The harbor seals at the Seattle Aquarium have new digs.

"This summer we opened a brand new harbor seal exhibit and it's got so many cool features. Deeper water, an acrylic surround for people to see, and it seats 100 people so they can really sit and spend time with our seals," said biologist Traci Belting.

Harbor seals are the most abundant marine mammal in the Puget Sound.

Something else that lives in the Puget Sound are Sixgill sharks. The aquarium will show a live feed in its Great Hall Tuesday, July 30th at 2:30 p.m. of divers interacting with them as part of Shark Week.

The seal exhibit is open seven days a week and is included with the price of admission.

The Wild Sharks event runs July 29th - August 4th.
