Archive: Night Dive

This event has passed and is archived.

Get your Halloween weekend started right with the fall edition of Night Dive! Come for a night full of pulsing bass lines, electric neon lights, and, of course, all of your favorite fishes and furry animals.

Night Dive is an adults-only event with local bands rockin’ out right next to the fish, DJs spinning in the Aquarium’s galleries, inspiring works of art, cocktails and drinks, and tasty bites from food trucks. Come take in the Aquarium at night, when the lights go down and the bubble curtain goes up in Honda Blue Cavern.

Costumes encouraged but not required. Please leave the toy and look-alike weapons (such as guns, swords, bow and arrow, etc.) as well as full face masks (partials are ok) as they will be confiscated at the door.
