Penguin Encounter – a brand new, once-in-a-lifetime, interactive opportunity to have a close up encounter with an African Penguin and learn how our animal experts care for these playful birds.

The 45-minute program will be comprised of a few different elements – first, guests will experience the inner workings of the Penguin Pavilion exhibit, then they will learn how staff cares for the exhibit’s current residents, and finally they will meet one of the Aquarium’s newest arrivals and stars of the Encounter – one of the three penguin chicks that haven’t quite moved into the exhibit just yet!
