Breakfast Time at the Aquarium: a Private Fish Feeding Encounter
In this exclusive behind-the-scenes experience, you’ll discover what it takes to feed the tens of thousands of animals at the Aquarium. This in-depth tour begins with a private viewing of the sea otters as they enjoy their morning meal. Finally, you'll roll up your sleeves and help feed some of the finned ocean ambassadors yourself! Because you'll be helping staff with some of their usual morning activities, be prepared for the possibility that you'll get a bit wet. (Please dress accordingly.) After your tour, you’ll have the option to enjoy the Aquarium's award-winning exhibits and programs. A portion of your purchase fee supports the Aquarium's many conservation programs to protect vulnerable ocean wildlife and secure the future health of the ocean.
