There are many reasons to visit the Aquarium this season.
Look for new animals on display, including the flamboyant cuttlefish and Charlie the sea otter (returning to the Aquarium in April from a two-year “research sabbatical”), as well as several new birds, including the Black-Backed Magpie, a female Collared Aracari, and a Laughing Kookaburra. Our penguins have also paired up for breeding season.
Two art exhibits will be on display at the Aquarium this spring, including Sharks: Beauty of the Ocean Predator, featuring shark sculptures by Victor Douieb, and Portrait of a Coral Reef, featuring the underwater photographs of Jim Hellemn. The shark sculptures will be on view through May 5, and the photographs will be on exhibit April 23 through May 22.
Enjoy Discounted Late Nights at the Aquarium during spring break. March 25 through 29, April 1 through 3, and April 5 admission after 5:00 p.m. is $14.95 for adults, seniors, and children. The entire Aquarium, except Lorikeet Forest, will be open until 8:30 p.m.
