Newport Aquarium Proposals

Dive Show Proposals

We will help you turn an enjoyable visit to the Aquarium with the love of your life - into the surprise of their life. They won’t suspect a thing when you stop by the theater to take in a Dive Show and won’t even know that you’ve been seated in a special row. At the end of the show, a diver will hold up a sign that says, “Will you marry me?” The rest is up to you. We suggest you seal it with a kiss.

Dive Show Proposals are available from Thursday-Sunday during regularly scheduled dive shows. You can even customize your sign.

Option 1: "Will you marry me?" sign $199.00
Option 2: Choose your own message $274.00

For more information, please contact our Wedding Specialists at 859-815-1453.

These cute, tuxedoed groomsmen may not make it to the wedding, but they can still help you pop the question. Plan a memorable wedding proposal with the playful penguins of the Newport Aquarium. You and your mate-to-be will get an exclusive, 20-minute encounter with our nine African Penguins, who will crowd around her while you drop to one knee. Your proposal includes a 4x6 penguin art created beforehand by one of our African Black-Footed penguin. The Penguin House can accommodate up to 15 guests.
