Explore the world of sharks by getting up close with the Aquarium’s toothy friends, shopping for gifts, and enjoying bands during FREE Shark Lagoon Nights

WHAT:           Where can you touch sharks, listen to live music by local bands, and enjoy a night out with your family, friends, or date for FREE? The Aquarium of the Pacific invites you to Shark Lagoon Nights, where you can dance, shop, learn, and satiate your curiosities about sharks.


The public is invited to get up close with the ocean’s ultimate predators at the Aquarium of the Pacific for FREE during Shark Lagoon Nights. Guests will have the opportunity to touch bamboo sharks and see our larger and toothier sharks, such as sand tiger sharks, as well as stingrays in the Aquarium’s Shark Lagoon. During Friday nights through December, the Aquarium will feature bands like Ronny and the Classics playing popular rock ‘n’ roll songs.


Shark Lagoon Nights bring guests up close to these mysterious and often misunderstood predators. Guests can see, touch, and learn about sharks and shop in the Pacific Treasures gift shop. You can warm up with coffee and hot cocoa, or wind down with beer or wine. Desserts and snacks will be available if you have sweet tooth. Enjoy live music from local bands during Shark Lagoon Nights. Start your weekend by relaxing in the cool night breeze with music, ocean animals, and shopping during Shark Lagoon Nights. You may even end up bringing a shark home with you—a stuffed one, that is.

LAGOON:       The 10,000 square-foot, outdoor Shark Lagoon offers visitors the opportunity to touch and interact with bamboo, epaulette, and zebra sharks. The exhibit allows guests to get nose-to-nose with large, toothy sharks. Sand tiger, nurse, white-tip, and black-tip reef sharks and rays are featured in the exhibit. In addition to the 90,000-gallon shark touch-pools and exhibit, interactive displays, including a giant water-squirting squid, allow children of all ages to have fun while learning about defenses certain animals use to avoid shark attacks.
