CLEVELAND — Valentine's Day is right around the corner, and if you're still looking for a sweetheart, there are plenty of fish in the sea, and at the Greater Cleveland Aquarium, who want to help you celebrate the season of love, whether it's with a special someone or family and friends.

The weather may be cold and gray, but there’s still a chance for a little tropical getaway with that special someone, whether it's in person or online.

The aquarium is offering romance-themed challenges, photo ops and a little mood music throughout the galleries.

Guests can also cozy up on the couch and experience the virtual shark exhibit encounter, or by sending customized underwater Valentine's Day greetings.

"You can customize the conversation part with your message,” said Stephanie White, the Greater Cleveland Aquarium general manager. “Maybe you want to tell them you're awesome or fantastic. It's a really creative way to celebrate Valentine's Day."

Scuba divers will take that message for a dive in the aquarium’s tank, and you can show your valentine that love isn’t just in the air, it’s in the water too.

The divers even took the chance to let our viewers know that they are loved!

If you want to send your own Valentine’s Day message, it will cost you $35, and you will need to get it submitted by Wednesday for it to be delivered by Valentine’s Day, which — for those with a goldfish’s memory — is this Sunday.
