What to Expect

Our Virtual Tour is hosted by a live educator who will take you through the Aquarium via prerecorded footage. This footage provides our virtual guests with the most comprehensive experience, allowing you to get up close with our animals and have the chance to learn more about them from husbandry staff and marine biologists—something we would otherwise not be able to guarantee.

Your tour’s live educator, knowledgeable on every nook and cranny of the Aquarium, will be there to answer questions throughout and after your Virtual Tour—leaving no shell left unturned!
