Why Are The Lights Out?

After Hours is a uniquely aquatic evening experience for adults.

While you may like to stay out late, for some of our animals the lights go out early in order to reflect their natural environment and behaviour. However, the majority of our exhibits will remain well lit throughout the evening to allow for easy viewing.

To ensure animal health and well-being, the Amazon Gallery will be open from 6-8 p.m. and the outdoor Penguin Point exhibit will be open weather dependent from 6-8 p.m. Be sure to visit before closing!

Thank you for your understanding.
