Evenings by the Bay

Join us for Evenings by the Bay! Extended summer hours until 8 p.m. on Saturdays allow you to see the Aquarium in a whole new light. Stroll our galleries with fewer people as you enjoy a glass of wine and listen to live musical performances. Plus, enjoy delicious, sustainable food featuring the freshest ingredients sourced from Monterey Bay and the Central Valley.
