Celebrate the Holiday Season at the Aquarium


November 21, 2011

The Aquarium of the Pacific is the perfect place to visit during the holiday season, with many special events and activities planned to help make the Aquarium a festive destination for the entire family.

Enjoy extended visiting hours during our Discounted Late Nights. Visit our calendar for a full list of dates. Take in the Aquarium’s relaxing atmosphere after dark, meet the sharks under the stars in Shark Lagoon, and explore the Aquarium’s galleries to find out which animals stay up late.

Join us for Holiday Treats for the Animals, our annual festival for sharing the “sea”son with our 11,000 animal residents. Santa Diver will be delivering special treats to the seals, sea lions, sea otters, birds, and other animals. The festival also features live entertainment and holiday-themed crafts. Plus, attendees have the opportunity to meet the Aquarium’s newest residents before they go on exhibit in 2012—our penguins!

As always, the Pacific Collections gift store is stocked with a wide selection of unique gifts for all ages and interests, making it a one-stop shop for holiday shopping. In addition to apparel, toys, and educational games and books, Pacific Collections also has ocean-themed ornaments, cards, and other wintery treats to choose from.

Also if you want to go green this holiday season, consider giving the gift of Aquarium membership or adopt an animal for your friends and loved ones.

With all of these activities lined up, the Aquarium is the perfect destination during the holidays.
