What You'll Get
An aquarium visit soothes the soul with visions of ambling fish and bubbling tanks that make us nostalgic for the gestation pods in which all human life begins. Come full circle with this Groupon.
Choose from Three Options
- $10 for admission for two (up to a $21.90 value)
- $18 for admission for four (up to a $43.80 value)
- $90 for a birthday party for up to 10 children (up to a $180 value)
Hosted by a sea-life-savvy educator, children's birthday parties grant attendees a behind-the-scenes tour, along with a goody bag, take-home craft, and animal feed for each child. Outside food and cakes are allowed, and each accompanying adult must pay regular admission. Customers can enhance their party for an additional fee with extra guests ($18/child), a 24-foot inflatable slide ($185/hour), and greenscreen pictures and a geode-cracking combo ($9/child).
The aquarium is not accepting visitors until its grand opening on Saturday, December 1.

About Portland Aquarium
Portland Aquarium, a December 2012 addition to Milwaukie, introduces visitors to thousands of waterborne species. Guests can slide their hands along the smooth flesh of a stingray or the knobby arms of a starfish or engage in staring contests with leopard sharks and jellyfish. Other exhibits include a cold-water tank filled with fish native to Oregon's coast and a rainforest-themed jungle gym for children. The tropical touch-tank woos visitors with its displays of vibrant-color aquatic life while amphibious wonders, including poison dart frogs, thrill visitors. Those seeking bigger thrills may visit the ball pythons and bearded dragons or get their picture taken with a lorikeet. Land-loving iguanas also lurch around in the mix.
