Go “backstage” in The Maritime Aquarium to learn how the AZA-accredited institution cares for its varied animals. Includes stops in the “fish kitchen,” jellyfish culture lab, and above the big shark exhibit.

Tickets: $12 adults, $8 children (must be at least 42" tall to participate)

Limit: 12 guests per tour. Walk-up sales available, space permitting. Please Note: Many of our behind-the-scenes areas are narrow or have stairs, therefore, this tour is not stroller or wheelchair friendly.
