  • Shark Dives

    Feb 22nd, 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.

  • Valentine's Feeding Time for Couples

    Feb 24th, 2018
    8:00am - 10:00am
    Throughout the Aquarium

    Our Valentine's Day Feeding Time on Feb. 10 was so popular ... we added another date!

    After a warm buffet in the Cascade Café, adult couples will make the rounds with Aquarium staff as the aquarists feed an amazing assortment of hungry animals. Take a turn feeding the turtles, horseshoe crabs and rays. Get up close and personal with the harbor seals at a private feeding. Best of all, watch behind-the-scenes as the aquarists feed the big sharks in the Aquarium’s Ocean Beyond the Sound exhibit. Everyone goes home with a box of specialty chocolates.

    Tickets are $135 per couple ($125 for members)

  • Aquarium Yoga

    Feb 24th, 2018
    8:30am - 9:45am
    Ocean Beyond the Sound Exhibit

    Join us for a unique slow flow yoga class in the serene environment of the aquarium's "Ocean Beyond the Sound" exhibit, home to our sand tiger and lemon sharks.  Linda from Mantra Yoga and Aerial Arts in Stamford will be leading this all-levels class which will allow students to use nature as inspiration for getting back to their natural state.

    Beginning with centering and breath work, students will ease into their practice with some warm up stretching and movement on the breath. This class will focus on staying present and mindful and working at your own level and pace (modifications will be offered for beginners as well as for advanced practitioners.) The class will close with each student receiving a shoulder and neck massage to ease them into their final resting pose.

    Note: Please bring your own mat to class (there will be a few mats available on a first-come-first-serve basis.) Students will need to sign a waiver when they arrive to participate. Aquarium admission at 10 a.m. is not included.

    Class is $25 per person ($22 for members)
