Host a Private Event

World Aquarium Private EventThe World Aquarium is the ideal venue for corporate hospitality and private events. Guests make their relaxing descent into the tranquil depths of the World Aquarium to sip champagne with the sharks, chat alongside the piranhas and nibble amongst the stingrays. Let your guests be surrounded by the wonders of water.

The World Aquarium is superb for cocktail receptions providing a stunning setting for your special event.  It’s a perfect and unique spot for wedding ceremonies too. Couples can celebrate their union in the midst of the Stingray City observatory.

The World Aquarium is an amazing backdrop to a larger reception of up to 200 or linear seating for up to 100 guests.
