Winter Fishtival

Winter Fishtival

When December 26, 2018–January 6, 2019

As the holiday season nears, so does one of our largest annual special events—Winter Fishtival!

Join us for hands-on activities, special talks and opportunities to learn more about the care and feeding of the Aquarium’s fish, birds, tide pool animals and marine mammals. Each day we’ll highlight a different sea animal and activity, including a special performance of Octonauts: To Your Stations on January 5 at 11am and 1pm. Included with Aquarium admission; no reservation necessary. This event runs from December 26–January 6 and each day has a different animal theme.
