ADD A PENGUIN VISIT!

Make your party or event extra special with a visit from one of our most loved residents, our African Penguins! A staff biologist will bring one of our penguins to your event. During a 30 minute interaction, you will learn about this endangered species and have the opportunity to ask questions. Your guests will be able to see the penguin upclose and take photos to make your event even more memorable.

 $200 / 30 minute session with penguin and penguin handler

PROPOSAL PACKAGE

Pop the question in a big way! We want to help turn a day trip to the Aquarium into a day you will never forget. After one of our scheduled dive shows we will reveal a proposal sign in the water for everyone to see. After the show you will receive the proposal sign, a picture of your special moment, and a memorable Ripley’s gift to take home.
