    Feb 25th, 2018
    12:15pm - 12:45pm
    Ocean Beyond the Sound Exhibit

    Would you jump into a tank of water filled with 6- and 7-foot sharks? Actually, it can be done – bloodlessly – because sharks aren't really the aggressive man-eaters of popular myth. Come see for yourself when The Maritime Aquarium's dive team spends some quality time among the sand tiger sharks, lemon shark and other creatures of the 110,000-gallon "Ocean Beyond the Sound" exhibit. Thanks to a cool communication link, you can even talk with the divers while they're in the exhibit with the sharks! They'll tell you that sharks should be respected ... but not feared.

    Free with Aquarium admission.

    Please Note:

    • Our Aquarium dive team is an all-volunteer crew. Dives may sometimes be cancelled with short or no notice due to availability. Where possible, they will substitute a "meet the diver" experience.
    • The audio system that lets you hear the divers talk also carries the sounds of the divers' SCUBA respiration. Some young children may find this loud and unnatural.

    March brings much national excitement about tossing things through hoops, and the Aquarium is in on the fun too.

    Each weekend in March, Maritime Aquarium guests can take part in “March Mania” challenges, such as a “Jaw-some Shark Toss” (a ring-toss game) and more.

    Plus, special educational stations will feature artifacts and animals, with a focus on special “talents” and adaptations.

    All “March Mania” activities will be free with Aquarium admission.

  • March Mania

    Mar 10th, 2018
    10:00am - 5:00pm
    Throughout the Aquarium

    March brings much national excitement about tossing things through hoops, and the Aquarium is in on the fun too.

    Each weekend in March, Maritime Aquarium guests can take part in “March Mania” challenges, such as a “Jaw-some Shark Toss” (a ring-toss game) and more.

    Plus, special educational stations will feature artifacts and animals, with a focus on special “talents” and adaptations.

    All “March Mania” activities will be free with Aquarium admission.

    Mar 10th, 2018
    12:15pm - 12:45pm
    Ocean Beyond the Sound Exhibit

    Would you jump into a tank of water filled with 6- and 7-foot sharks? Actually, it can be done – bloodlessly – because sharks aren't really the aggressive man-eaters of popular myth. Come see for yourself when The Maritime Aquarium's dive team spends some quality time among the sand tiger sharks, lemon shark and other creatures of the 110,000-gallon "Ocean Beyond the Sound" exhibit. Thanks to a cool communication link, you can even talk with the divers while they're in the exhibit with the sharks! They'll tell you that sharks should be respected ... but not feared.

    Free with Aquarium admission.

    Please Note:

    • Our Aquarium dive team is an all-volunteer crew. Dives may sometimes be cancelled with short or no notice due to availability. Where possible, they will substitute a "meet the diver" experience.
    • The audio system that lets you hear the divers talk also carries the sounds of the divers' SCUBA respiration. Some young children may find this loud and unnatural.

  • March Mania

    Mar 24th, 2018
    10:00am - 5:00pm
    Throughout the Aquarium

    March brings much national excitement about tossing things through hoops, and the Aquarium is in on the fun too.

    Each weekend in March, Maritime Aquarium guests can take part in “March Mania” challenges, such as a “Jaw-some Shark Toss” (a ring-toss game) and more.

    Plus, special educational stations will feature artifacts and animals, with a focus on special “talents” and adaptations.

    All “March Mania” activities will be free with Aquarium admission.

  • Shark Dives

    Mar 24th, 2018
    12:15pm - 12:45pm
    Ocean Beyond the Sound Exhibit

    Would you jump into a tank of water filled with 6- and 7-foot sharks? Actually, it can be done – bloodlessly – because sharks aren't really the aggressive man-eaters of popular myth. Come see for yourself when The Maritime Aquarium's dive team spends some quality time among the sand tiger sharks, lemon shark and other creatures of the 110,000-gallon "Ocean Beyond the Sound" exhibit. Thanks to a cool communication link, you can even talk with the divers while they're in the exhibit with the sharks! They'll tell you that sharks should be respected ... but not feared.

    Free with Aquarium admission.

    Please Note:

    • Our Aquarium dive team is an all-volunteer crew. Dives may sometimes be cancelled with short or no notice due to availability. Where possible, they will substitute a "meet the diver" experience.
    • The audio system that lets you hear the divers talk also carries the sounds of the divers' SCUBA respiration. Some young children may find this loud and unnatural.
