Hone in on your passion for ocean conservation and gourmet food by way of a culinary journey of sustainable seafood and other delectable delights. Each piece of grub will be made by leading Southern California chefs will and served alongside DJ music, dancing and an opportunity to name a penguin chick—all at the Aquarium of the Pacific. 

All proceeds, at a $125 a head, will benefit the Aquarium’s education, conservation and animal care programs, a worthy cause for the institution’s 11,000 plus animals from the waters of Southern California, Baja and the Northern and Tropical Pacific. Unique items will be available for live and silent auctions, while guests can play the popular “Go Fish” opportunity game, where according to the Aquarium, “everyone goes home a winner.”

Our personal favorite highlight? Guests can vie to name a penguin chick during the live auction.

Attendees will be able to wander through the galleries at night, a truly rare opportunity to visit the aquarium’s animals without the normal crowds. Gourmet cuisine from more than twenty five food and beverage providers and an open bar will serve up the sustainable seafood, vegetarian dishes, gourmet desserts, beers, wines and olive oil tastings, sure to satisfy even the most ecstatic foodie’s cravings.

The 11th Annual Sea Far will take place at the Aquarium of the Pacific on October 18 at 7:00PM Cost is $125 per person and includes an open bar, food samples donated by food and beverage providers and Aquarium admission.
