see what most others don’t


Go behind the scenes and get a glimpse of areas that aren’t visible to the public during an aquarium tour. Hear the drone of water pumps, encounter the smell of fishy diets, and feel the salt that we use to keep our marine life healthy. Walk away with a better understanding of the complexities of caring for a variety of aquatic animals. 

On this tour, you will witness the ways our staff work hard to ensure good animal nutrition, working life support systems, and novel enrichment opportunities. The health and welfare of our animal collection is at the heart of everything we do!
