In celebration of International African Penguin Awareness Day on October 14th, OdySea Aquarium will be celebrating October 7th-October 15th with specialty programs, offerings, and penguin-themed fun all week long!

Staff will be dressed to impress with black tuxedos in celebration of these feathered creatures while festive Penguin themed backdrops will be positioned for professional photo opportunities.  Guests will get the chance to see a real life Penguin Parade on the upper level of the Aquarium at 11:30 a.m. on weekdays and 11:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. on weekends.  There will be special educational and interactive talks about Penguins every hour by the Animal Care Team.  The OdySea Treasures gift shop will be Penguin themed with extra-large penguin plush stuffed animals being offered for the price of $15.00 rather than $50.00.  There will also be opportunities to purchase and decorate a “Penguin Foot” for $1.00 in support of rescue organization, SANCCOB.

The OdySea Aquarium will also be running an “early bird” special.  Anyone who purchases a general admission Aquarium ticket before 10/5 to visit Monday-Friday during Penguin Awareness Week  (10/9-10/13) will be automatically entered to win a Private Penguin Interaction Party, valued at $730!  The winner + 7 friends will receive general admission tickets to the Aquarium plus a private Penguin Interaction Program experience on a mutually agreed upon date and time. Winner must redeem prize before December 23, 2017 (Thanksgiving Weekend is excluded).
