Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and love is in the air – or water we should say! If you’re still looking for a great date activity, look no further than Georgia Aquarium for a splashing good time with your significant otter.

Start off the weekend right: Take a break after the long week and enjoy a Friday night happy hour at the Aquarium. From 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. every Friday night during Winter Fest enjoy live music and bars featuring specialty cocktails. No separate ticket required! All ages welcome, must be age 21 and up to enjoy cocktails.

See a presentation: Skip your local movie theater and instead opt for an up-close and personal presentation on Valentine's Day! Watch our rescued sea lions interact with their trainers and learn more about this species in the Under the Boardwalk presentation, and celebrate beauty, grace, athleticism, and intelligence of bottlenose dolphins in the AT&T Dolphin Celebration presentation.

Sip (and sleep!) under the sea: Don't want Valentine's Day to end? Plan your next date night out with VIP tickets to our St. Patrick’s Day Sips Under the Sea on March 17. VIP admission tickets include early access to the event, two tapas tickets, and two drink tickets. Want to enjoy the Aquarium a little longer? Spend the night and experience the magic of the Aquarium after-hours at an adult sleepover!

Share an experience: Give the gift of an experience neither of you will soon forget with one of our animal encounter or animal interactive programs. Take a relaxing swim alongside whale sharks and manta rays in Ocean Voyager with our Journey with Gentle Giants interactive program, or receive a kiss from a beluga whale in our Beluga Interactive Program. With an Annual Membership, you can have a year full of dates and memorable experience!

Spread the love: Wish you could take an animal home with you? You can – an animal plush of course! Adopt an animal for your special someone. Georgia Aquarium’s African penguin and California sea lion Adopt Kits help to further research and conservation efforts of these animals. 

Plan your visit in advance and find ways to save, presentation times and more on our website at or on Georgia Aquarium’s mobile app.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

SEALed with a kiss,

Georgia Aquarium
