"We've taken a few educational boat trips over the years but yours was by far the best all-around experience. The highlight had to be the breadth of sea life we pulled up and investigated, interacted with and, of course, learn about."

Sand Tiger Shark Fun Fact

Look closely at the sand tiger sharks in the "Ocean Beyond the Sound" exhibit. Their snout and jaws are covered in tiny holes. These are receptors for the sharks' "sixth sense" – their ability to detect bioelectric fields emitted by other animals (including potential prey).

Education and Marine Science Resources

Our Education Department wants to make your connection with The Maritime Aquarium as easy and as helpful as possible.

You can download Activity Sheets Sheets and a Scavenger Hunt that will engage and focus students during their Aquarium visit.
