Heading for the Oregon coast during December? Be sure to check out the Sea of Lights at Oregon Coast Aquarium every Friday and Saturday night from 6-9 PM starting December 1st . The Aquarium is located just 20 minutes north of the Owlhaven, in Newport. Every Friday and Saturday evening during December, you’ll have the chance to enjoy the aquarium all decked out with thousands of holiday lights, and also Scuba Santa diving into the tanks and visiting with both fish and families.
Admission on December 1 and 2nd (6-9PM) is $2 plus two cans of nonperishable food, making it a very affordable way to enjoy the aquarium. Entry is $10 per person without donation. Admission is free for Aquarium members, but they are encouraged to bring an item to donate.
The Sea of Lights is also available all of the rest of the Friday and Saturday nights in December from 5-8 PM. Admission on those dates is $10, or free with a day admission.
The Aquarium is open every day, except December 25, this winter from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. For more information visit aquarium.org or call (541) 867-3474.
