An aquarium visit soothes the soul with visions of ambling fish and bubbling tanks that make us nostalgic for the gestation pods in which all human life begins. Come full circle with this Groupon.

Choose from Four Options

  • $25 for sea camp (half-day) or survival sea camp (a $60 value). Students help out around the aquarium, and ages 12-18 can shadow animal keepers.
  • $25 for a discovery adventure tour for two (a $100 value), which includes two to three hours spent feeding and touching a variety of animals.
  • $50 for an extreme adventure tour for two (a $200 value), which lets individuals view, feed, and interact with creatures such as scorpions, sharks, and tarantulas.
  • $185 for a three-hour school-learning program for up to 10 kids (a $750 value) that includes behind-the-scenes activities, aquarium exploration, and classroom activities, all in line with state curriculum activities

Sea camp and survival sea camp provide valuable experience for children interested in veterinary medicine or other animal-care professions. For additional information about the extended-length tours, click here. This Groupon does not include admission to City Museum.

World Aquarium

Since 1971, World Aquarium has stuck to its not-for-profit mission to protect marine life and promote the public's understanding of the aquatic world through educational programs, exhibits, and research. The aquarium unsurprisingly favors a hands-on approach; visitors often get close enough to high-five the flippers, fins, or pincers of many of its more than 10,000 animals.

Tour guides wind through exhibits on sea and freshwater animals, showcasing creatures such as sea turtles, sharks, stingrays, and fish from rivers and lakes around the globe. While peering into the faithfully reconstructed habitats, visitors absorb valuable information on how to conserve water, protect aquatic resources, and peacefully resolve conflicts between Siamese fighting fish.

Reviews

Although not well known, the Aquarium is a great place to take your children (and grandchildren) on a weekend.
