Night Dive

Ladies and gentlemen, step right up to the most amazing circus under the sea! Circus freaks (and the normal folks too) are invited to a Night Dive for unimaginable fun with awe-inspiring feats of our animals, colorful spectacles of beauty, and the thrills of live music and art.

Take in the Aquarium at night, when the lights go down and the bubble curtain goes up in Honda Blue Cavern. In the usual Night Dive tradition, enjoy cocktails, food trucks, music from local bands, DJs spinning in the Aquarium’s galleries, and works of art. Come one, come all!
