‘Tis the season of giving. Show your loved ones you care about them as well as the blue planet with a special gift from the Aquarium. Treat a friend to an Aquarium membership or even a seal kiss, sponsor an Aquarium animal or stock up on eco-friendly goodies at the Aquarium Gift Shop.
Think outside the box this holiday season, and let your holiday shopping dollars do double duty—find thoughtful and memorable presents and help support the Aquarium’s mission.
Our Gift Shop is open every day (and available online!) with a vast array of gift ideas for all ages. Hop on in to check out the plush seals perfect for a winter cuddling. Here are some other ideas:
- Aquarium gift certificates
- Plush sharks, seals, turtles and penguins
- Penguin, turtle and shark themed gifts
- Educational games and toys
- Books for all ages
- Earth-friendly live blue™ tees and other clothing
- And much more!
How about a present that just keeps giving? A gift membership means that your friend or family member can visit as much as they want for an entire year! That means countless hours tickling the wings of stingrays in the touch tank, or watching the frisky young sea lions grow up. They’ll learn something new every visit, but you don’t have to tell them it’s educational!
A gift membership provides:
- Unlimited, express admission
- Discounts on all Aquarium programs, including the interactive seal programs!
- Invitations to exclusive members-only events.
- A gift membership is more than a present—it’s a year of family bonding, entertainment and education.
- Read about all the benefits of membership.
- Purchase now online! (Purchase a gift membership by 11:59 p.m. on December 2, 2012, to ensure delivery by Christmas! Order after December 2 and you'll be able to send your lucky recipient a personalized e-card.)
There's nothing like a little face time with the seals to delight the animal lover in your life! Learn them about harbor seals and fur seals the same way trainers do: by interacting with them up-close, through our Interactive Seal programs. Your lucky recipient may be able to give some training signals, touch a seal or even get a seal kiss!

Help protect one of the most critically endangered large whales on Earth through our North Atlantic Right Whale Sponsorship Program. There are only around 400 of these magnificent animals alive today, and our Right Whale Research Program is working to help save them. Your sponsorship, which allows you to pick a specific whale to sponsor, will directly support the yearly costs of research to protect these species.
Lucky recipients of Right Whale Sponsorship packages not only get to help save these creatures. They also receive a certificate of sponsorship, a composite drawing and sighting map of their whale, information about right whales, a one-year subscription to Right Whale Research News, the biannual newsletter, and more benefits based on sponsorship level.
