Night Dive


Enjoy an evening among the fishes as we explore all the curiosities of the sea. Spend an evening filled with art and music as the lights go down and the bubble curtain goes up in the three-story-tall Honda Blue Cavern exhibit. This event is sure to keep you busy all night with bands rocking it at Shark Lagoon and in the Great Hall. Take in the Aquarium at night during Night Dive, an event for adults ages 18 and up, enjoy bands, cocktails, food trucks, groove to some DJs, and be moved by works of art.


Join us as we learn the curious habits of the octopus from Jenny Hofmeister, a Marine Invertebrate Behavioral Ecologist in her talk titled, “O octopus, where art thou? Unraveling the mysteries of octopus movement, ecology, and behavior.”
