It’s almost that time of the year where you dedicate one full day to chocolates, roses, and all things sweet and mushy. In order to make sure your February 14 is amazing, the Vancouver Aquarium is hosting an after-hours Valentine's Day event for adults only. The Vancouver Aquarium Valentine's Day event will be filled with wine and absolutely no kids. It's the perfect way to spend an evening with the one you love.
The Vancouver aquariums is an experience everyone needs to have. It wasn’t named one of the best aquariums in North America for nothing.
From sloths to lionfish, this place has it all and it’s both educational and adorable.
They even have otters which are basically the stars of the entire experience.
For Valentine's Day this year, the aquarium will be hosting an extra special after-hours event that is completely adult's only.
For only $38 per person, you and your significant other can wander around the romantic setting and take in all the information and cuteness you can handle.
According to the aquarium's event page, the number one highlight will be learning about how all the animals in the ocean get it on. Yes, you read that correctly.
While it may seem a little funny at first, the reproduction of sea life is totally weird, important, and super interesting. Plus, 'tis the season.
Alongside the adult learning will be live music by Melanie Dekker.
If you want to make this night the full Valentine's Day extravaganza, consider upgrading your ticket to the VIP experience. This way you will get a full-on romantic three-course dinner right at the aquarium.
How incredible is that?
When you’re done your meal, grab a drink and start wandering through the exhibits.
There will also be a 4D movie playing that will show majestic sea turtles coming to life right before your eyes.
If the mood feels right, you will even be able to have your wedding that night. The aquarium is actually offering wedding ceremonies that are about 10 minutes each.
You can even renew your vows if you’re already married.
In case you need more of an excuse to visit, there will be a sea otter feeding.
These curious and playful creatures are what the aquarium is all about and they regularly get caught on video being their cute selves.
During the after-hours event, you will get to watch the sea otters snack on some Valentine's Day treats. Not only is it adorable but it is great for their learning.
Last year, the aquarium gave their resident otters the cutest Valentine's Day gift of shrimp paste frozen in ice. Yum!
Tickets for the February 14 event are available online now through the Vancouver Aquarium website.
This event happens every year and it keeps getting more and more popular so we suggest getting tickets while you still can.
It’s not that far away, after all.
If you can make it to this after-hours event, no worries. The aquarium is constantly putting on adults-only events during closing hours especially during the summer.
