With a beer or wine in hand, patrons got a look at the new exhibits and sea life on hand including the new Penguin Point sanctuary with our loaned South African ice birds.

How adorable is this sleeping otter just floating on top of the water? It was a bit odd wandering the aquarium without and children in sight and bars at each end of the building.

The aquarium premiered The Great Salmon Run, a “4-D Experience” short film for the senses, and a fun, visually stunning look at the life of salmon. The night was full of casual fun and sea life conversation.
