Blacktip Reef


The National Aquarium cordially invites you to its first-ever InstaMeet in celebration of the first anniversary of our Blacktip Reef exhibit!

Registration is now closed.

On the evening of August 19th, our doors will remain open from 6:30-8pm for 75 of our stellar Instagram followers to privately explore and photograph our Indo-Pacific reef.

Home to hundreds of animals (including fish, rays, sharks and a 500+ pound green sea turtle), Blacktip Reef is a breathtaking exhibit full of color, light and movement! As we celebrate and reflect on its first year, we’re excited to invite our Instagram community to experience the reef's beauty in-person.

Registration for this event is required. Light refreshments will be served.

*Registration for the National Aquarium's InstaMeet does not secure entry to this event. Registration will remain open through Thursday, August 14. Our final 75 InstaMeet participants will be selected and notified by Friday, August 15. Additional registrations will be placed on a wait list and notified by Monday, August 17 if a spot becomes available.*
