Annual Holiday Social (Member-Only)

Each year, CFA Society San Francisco hosts a member-only Holiday Social to end the year in celebration, with this year being our first at Aquarium of the Bay.

Festivities include:

  • Access to the entire aquarium
  • Private access to the River Otter exhibit from 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
  • Appetizers, cocktails, and non-alcoholic beverages
  • Special event raffle

Aquarium of the Bay provides an up close and personal experience; come face to face with more than 20,000 local marine animals. 

  • Discover the Bay - This gallery introduces the ecosystem of San Francisco Bay and features seven different animal habitats showing how they form homes for the creatures who live in the Bay.
  • Go with the Flow - Mesmerizing jellies await your arrival upon entering Under the Bay. Ambient lighting sets the mood to enjoy these beautifully hypnotic invertebrates. Front and center is a 725-gallon cylinder tank displaying Moon Jellies, while a wall-mounted, 740-gallon gallon tank showcases the Pacific Sea Nettles.
  • Under the Bay - This gallery allows visitors to truly explore below the bay with a fully immersive experience as they walk through 300 feet of acrylic tunnels filled surrounded by schooling anchovies, skates, bay rays, and sharks.
  • Touch the Bay - This gallery allows visitors touch several types of animals including bat rays, skates, leopard sharks, and tide-pool animals such as sea stars and sea cucumbers. The touch pools are accompanied by the interactive Bay lab station.
  • River Otters - Adorable and playful river otters await visitors in this gallery. This gallery houses four river otters: Shasta, who was saved from the Louisiana fur trade; Ryer, Baxter, and the youngest Tahoe. Found throughout the Bay Area and its river systems, river otters are considered a watershed ambassador as they are an indicator of a healthy water system; meaning if you see a river otter in the wild, you know that waterway is healthy.


Tickets include admission, one raffle ticket, appetizers and cocktail tickets. Space is limited and no walk-ins or guests will be accepted so register today to ensure your spot at this popular annual offering.
