Join the Aquarium this December for the annual Sea of Lights

‘Tis the season when over half a million twinkling, colorful lights and holiday décor surround visitors with the spirit of the holidays! Come explore the aquarium during their annual after-hours Sea of Lights celebration. SCUBA Santa will dive the Aquarium exhibits, pose for photos, and take time to list your Christmas wishes every weekend this December, at the Oregon Coast Aquarium’s Sea of Lights celebration.

This family-friendly event kicks off with a special celebration on Friday, November 30 and Saturday, December 1 from 6 to 9 pm. Admission to the first weekend of Sea of Lights is $2 with 2 cans of nonperishable food for people and pets. Entry is $10 per person without donation. Admission is free for Aquarium members, but they are encouraged to bring an item to donate. You may also donate pet food or new, unwrapped children’s toys for the Newport Fire Department’s Holiday Toy Drive in place of a food donation.

Sea of Lights will continue to illuminate the Aquarium every following Friday and Saturday of December from 5 to 8 pm. Admission is $10, or free with same day paid admission.

This year’s Sea of Lights is proudly presented by Walmart.
