Step behind the scenes and meet a giant Pacific octopus face to face! We’ll take your party of four (4) into our cephalopod gallery, where one of our aquarists will share the secrets of caring for these amazing, intelligent invertebrates. You’ll get some hands-on time with the octopus as you learn about what they eat and the types of enrichment activities we provide to keep them healthy and happy at the Aquarium.
You’ll also take home an original piece of octopus art by Tricia Kibler, whose paintings of marine life and other subjects provide “a way for my heart to speak." The painting is titled "In the Deep" , it is 12x36 acrylic paint on gallery wrapped canvas, high gloss finish.
