Encounter Experiences:
Behind the Scenes Tour- The last time you visited the Aquarium did you ever wonder what happens behind the scenes? One of the Aquarium’s knowledgeable trainers will give you a guided half-hour where you’ll learn how our staff works with our animals, how we make sea water, how many tons of fish our animals eat each year and other fun facts. You’ll also go backstage to view one of our animals up close and when the tour concludes you’ll get reserved seating during the “Spirit of the Sea” sea lion show. The price for this tour is $10 per person or just $8 for members. Tours take place Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 12:00 PM and 2:00 PM. You must be at least 6 years old to participate.

Meet a Penguin Experience- Penguins are one of the most beloved animals at the Aquarium and this fun yet educational 20-minute session is a rare opportunity to have a beak to nose experience with one of these flightless birds. You’ll experience an entertaining interaction with a penguin and gain an understanding about their care and what makes these animals remarkable. Encounters are $65 per person or $55 for each member. (Small groups of 3-10 people pay just $50 per person/$40for members and larger groups of 11-75 people are just $150 for the group or $125 for a group if a member pays.)
