In this unique viewing of the Heal the Bay Aquarium, guests will be able to view various marine animals that utilize light to communicate, camouflage, or attract their next meal. From fluorescing sharks to glowing anemones, we welcome you into the dark to discover how light is used by the animals of our local Bay. We’ll begin the night's festivities with an introduction to the Aquarium and the topic of light in the ocean. Immediately after, the aquarium will go dark and guests will be sent on staff-guided tours to view specific exhibits featuring an animal and its unique adaptation to using light. Our glowing theme will extend to the realm of libations as well! Each adult guest will receive one complimentary drink ticket to choose from a selection of glow-themed cocktails (or mocktails). Additional drinks will be available to purchase at the cash bar.

Admission to the Aquarium

Heal the Bay Aquarium is a small community aquarium uniquely located beneath the Santa Monica Pier, just steps away from the Santa Monica Bay. Guests will be treated to the rare opportunity of experiencing the aquarium during after dark hours when it is typically closed to the public. As a bonus, guests may get to observe unique activity from some of our nocturnal animals waking up from their daytime naps.
