The aquarium offers a variety of presentations that include, but aren’t limited to, the Penguin Waddle Walk, Dolphin Celebration, Deepo’s Highway, and the Sea Lion Under the boardwalk. In addition to these exciting shows, the aquarium also hosts events throughout the year for families of all sizes and interests.
