Love is in the air this Valentine’s Day
Planning to pop the question to the love of your life? Looking for a unique and heartfelt way to celebrate your relationship this Valentine’s Day? We’re offering a Romantic Get-Away package that’s certain to create lasting and loving memories!
Romance Tours are available all year long, but our Valentine’s Day package is one of a kind. For the holiday, you’ll stay in an ocean-view room at Monterey’s Spindrift Inn, ranked by TripAdvisor members among the “Best Hotels for Romance” in the United States.
We’ll pair your stay with an unforgettable private tour for two of the aquarium. You’ll learn about some of our most romantic sea creatures before you adjourn to a private ocean-view room for a champagne toast and chocolate-covered strawberries with your special someone. It’s the perfect way to profess your love this Valentine’s Day.
Our Romantic Get-Away Package is available on Thursday, February 14, with very limited availability. (Overnight stays at the Spindrift are available either February 13 or 14.) You can get all the details and book your tour through our reservation center, (866) 963-9645.
Want to come celebrate with us? Ring in the New Year with the entire family at the Aquarium!
Did you get a chance to see our Day of Discovery program, where young people with disabilities don scuba gear and encounter sea creatures in the Great Tide Pool? Here are some great photos from the weekend! Don’t forget, we also offer our popular Underwater Explorers program for kids 8-13!

You never know what cool animals will be show up in our Underwater Explorers dive program! For the benefit of the kids, our husbandry staff recently released a small (and harmless) leopard shark into the Great Tide Pool! It will swim out with the next high tide, and into the bay!
Leopard sharks are considered shy and skittish, virtually harmless to humans. They feed primarily on bottom-dwelling invertebrates like crabs, shrimp, clams and octopus, as well as some bony fishes including anchovies, smelts and even some other bottom-dwelling sharks and rays.
Our Underwater Explorers program starts June 16, 2012! We’ll introduce your kids ages 8-13 to surface scuba with Aquarium dive staff in the Great Tide Pool. Come dive with us!
