Enjoy food, drinks, and live music in front of the outdoor Arctic Coast exhibit, home to the aquarium’s three resident beluga whales.

While enjoying hors d’oeuvres and drink specials such as the “Belugatini” provided by Ocean Blue Catering, guests can appreciate close-up views of the belugas through the twenty foot underwater viewing windows. Live music will be provided by Greg Piccolo… with sporadic accompanied backup vocals by the trio in the water.
