Love will be in the air at the Valentine’s Day edition of Vancouver Aquarium’s After Hours event on Wednesday, February 14. The evening affair is adults-only, setting the stage for a provocative, sometimes racy, and oftentimes comical exploration of the sex lives of aquatic animals.
Singles and doubles alike can spend Valentine’s Day with a drink in hand while they explore the galleries after dark. Take in the Animal Sex Talk presented by the Aquarium’s head vet, Dr. Martin Haulena, and learn about coral sex, otter love and what positions a shark prefers.
The naughty puppet show is sure to have guests in stitches, while the Meet a Penguin program lets you get up close with the lovable birds. An intimate affair, the event will be open to guests 19 and older and cocktails, beer, and wine will be available for purchase throughout the Aquarium.
Where: Vancouver Aquarium (845 Avison Way)
When: February 14 from 6 to 10 p.m.
