Santa puts seasonal prep on hold to share holiday magic at the Aquarium during Santa by the Sea. Create memories for both young and grown. Meet a live penguin (yes, a penguin)! St. Nick takes a dip with sharks and rays multiple times daily. The two-day event is free with aquarium admission Dec. 16-17.
Marvel at our decked halls throughout the holiday season. The 2017 Festival of Trees creates a dazzling display, running 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. through January 1, free with Aquarium admission.
‘Tis the season for hustle and bustle. Holiday Elf Camp keeps the kids happy — and gifts you with a little time. Campers craft gifts, meet live animals, and much more. Elf camps are Dec. 9, 16, 21, 22. Preregistration is required and space is limited.
Teachers can unwrap a new opportunity to engage students. Learn more about the Aquarium Scholars mini-grant program. Deadline for applications is Dec. 17.
The Aquarium is closed Christmas Day so staff may enjoy time with their families.
