2021 New Year

Ring in 2022 at the fourth annual New Year’s Eve Night Dive at the Aquarium of the Pacific. It will be a night to remember with a live band playing in the Great Hall and DJs spinning in the galleries—all curated by the team that brings you Night Dive. So, you know it’s going to be good!

Dance as much as you want and when you need a break, grab a drink from the cash bar and go see your favorite animals. You can also get your grub on with tasty bites on sale in Café Scuba.

Doors open at 8:00 p.m., countdown is at Midnight (obviously), and then the party won’t stop until 1:00 a.m. You can dress to the nines or wear whatever you want; just leave the New Year’s resolutions at home and remember to bring the fun!
