Night Dive

Odd Couples

Find out what happens when art, music, and marine life hook up for an unforgettable evening. From gender bending fish, to other fins with benefits… we will explore fascinating relationships that form beneath the sea.

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.

In keeping with the theme of the evening, guest speaker Milena Acosta will discuss odd couples of the sea. Long Beach’s own personality Jewels will grace the Night Dive stage and bring drag performers to entertain attendees. The Museum of Latin American Art will provide an interactive art station.
