It would take months of sea travel, extensive scuba certifications, and fluency in several crustacean dialects to find—let alone interact with—all the creatures found in Ocean Explorium's interactive exhibits. The science center emphasizes environmental stewardship and scientific literacy through several educational habitats such as touch tanks of local aquatic wildlife—including New Bedford's world-famous scallops and schools of rays and sharks. The Living Laboratory exhibit brings visitors face to face with sea creatures such as baby sharks, shark egg cases, coral farm, and moon jellies. Beyond the up-close encounters with denizens of the deep, Ocean Explorium also enlightens patrons with a variety of non-living displays. The Explorer's Zone presents scientific experiments that reveal the workings of the natural world through hands-on exhibits themed around different weekly topics, and Discovery Bay enthralls children aged eight or younger with games, puzzles, and a sand and water table. Advanced computers construct a three-dimensional image of our home planet as it appears from outer space in the Science on a Sphere exhibit, displaying global weather patterns in real time or replaying natural phenomena from history, such as the time it rained men.

Featured prominently in Melville’s Moby Dick, the New Bedford waterfront is home to 250 years of seafaring history. During the 70-minute cruise, budding sea dogs can survey the storied harbor from aboard an intimate tour boat, absorbing salt-seasoned factoids through the knowledgeable captain's narration. Cruise past industrious fishing boats off-loading scallops and graceful yachts to reach the 9,100-foot-long New Bedford Harbor hurricane barrier, then watch the 19th-century Palmer’s Island lighthouse exchange winks with passing harbor seals. Other nearby attractions include the Revolutionary War–era Fort Phoenix and the New Bedford Whaling Museum, which tourists can visit or view through a pretend spyglass.
