Waddle over to the Aquarium of Niagara for our annual Penguin Days celebration! 


Grab your friends and visit the Aquarium on March 18th and 19th for a weekend of penguin-themed fun.


This year's theme, "Adapting to Change, Protecting the Future," highlights the challenges of navigating the avian flu pandemic, the threats Humboldt penguins face in their natural environment, and the important work we are doing to safeguard the species for the future. 


Immerse yourself in the world of Humboldt penguins with exciting, interactive, and unique programming.


This year, we are excited to be offering modified public penguin encounters!*


Other Activities Include:

  • Prehistoric Penguin Display
  • Hands-on Fun at a Jr Vet Station
  • Special Penguin Presentations
  • Exciting Raffle for Penguin-painted Prizes


Reserve your admission today and swim with us towards the future for Humboldt penguins!


*In response to avian flu, group penguin encounters will be conducted in a new way this year. Registration is free but will be offered on a “first come, first served” basis with 75 tickets available per time slot. Participants will be asked to be in line for the encounters 10 minutes prior to the experience. Standby ticketing will be available pending participants not reporting for their designated slot.  


Encounters will take place at 10:30am and 12:00pm on Saturday, and at 10:30am, 12:00pm, 3:00pm, and 4:30pm on Sunday.


NOTE: this is a NON-CONTACT experience and there will be no touching of the birds.
