Love is in the air or, as in our case, in the water! On 14 February, we’re opening our doors to the romantics, the in-loves, the newly in-likes and the love-you-forevers to celebrate Valentine’s Day under the watchful eye of turtles, stingrays, and shoals of shimmering fish.


Book your romantic aquatic celebration and enjoy a four-course dinner either in front of the magnificent I&J Ocean Exhibit, in our 10-m long tunnel, in the Atlantic Ocean Gallery, or (as private as it gets) in Tranquility, which has a giant window facing onto the mesmerising Ocean Basket Kelp Forest Exhibit.

This is dinner with a difference – in addition to the spectacular surroundings, you will also be treated to Venetian waltz and salsa demonstrations as well as professional dance partners for the night! (Please note: No dance demonstration, dance lesson or opportunity to use the dancefloor will be available for guests choosing the Atlantic Ocean Gallery option.) You are invited to relax, take in the scenery and the very special company while enjoying a delectable meal and participating in some graceful swanning around the dancefloor.

There are four options in the Aquarium to choose from. Each area has a varying number of two-seater tables offering different views into the spectacular exhibits.
