Penguin Encounters

If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind experience during your Aquarium visit, try a Penguin Encounter! Meeting our 19 Gentoo penguins up close is truly a unique and fun adventure. First, you’ll learn all about Gentoo penguins and where they’re from in one of our classrooms. Then, you and your small group will go behind the scenes to meet them up close. The penguins waddle in from their exhibit, and you’ll get the chance to feed them some fish. Enjoy some time with our penguins and get to know them and their individual personalities.
