Holiday Fun at The Aquarium of the Pacific

We were invited as a guest of the venue.

Aquarium Holidays at The Aquarium of the Pacific

This year, our family got into the holiday spirit at The Aquarium of the Pacific! During the month of December through December 23rd, the Aquarium of the Pacific is celebrating Aquarium Holidays with tons of animal fun for families to enjoy.

Visiting Santa at The Aquarium of the Pacific

With so many exciting things to visit and see, the Aquarium of the Pacific offers many treats. There is a Santa Diver that appears daily in the Honda Blue Cavern. Along with a photo of Santa with the fish, families are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to visit with Santa in front of the beautiful Honda Blue Cavern, as well as with Holiday Aquarium characters.

Snow animals and fun at The Aquarium of the Pacific

On weekends, be sure to catch the Penguin Walk on the 2nd floor at the Northern Pacific Gallery. There is a gingerbread house display in the main hall that were made by aquarium staff and one professional baker. The Millennium Falcon gingerbread house was our favorite!

During the weekend of December 17th & 18th families can attend Breakfast with Santa at the Aquarium’s Cafe Scuba. There is a tasty selection of breakfast foods that will be available to purchase.  No RSVP necessary. There is also a real snow play area on the lawn in front of the Aquarium, weather permitting.

In addition to all of the wonderful holiday fun, my daughter loves the 2 finger touch pools with the Rays.  This is an exciting way to see these beautiful creatures up close and personal.  You can get an opportunity to learn more about these amazing animals from the staff and watch feedings.
