Even though it’s spring break and the children will be flocking to local attractions, the Vancouver Aquarium is hosting an event this Friday just for the big kids. Immersion is an exclusive late-night event filled with music, entertainment, and cocktails inside one of the city’s most interesting venues.


From 8:00pm until 12:00am on March 25th attendees will get access to the shark penthouse, have their tarot cards read, listen to the music of DJ Emiko, have hands-on experiences with sea life in the ‘Wet Lab’, check out the Aquarium’s 4D shows, and enjoy complimentary canapes. A cash bar will also be open on-site. Tickets are $30 for non-members and $24 for members.

I have two tickets available for Immersion, here’s how you can enter to win:

  • Leave a comment on this post naming your favourite sea creature (1 entry)
  • Post the following on Twitter (1 entry)
  • I entered to win tickets to #Immersion @VancouverAqua from @Miss604
