A Behind-the-Scenes Tour is a 45-minute guided tour that will take you up on deck above our tunnel system where you can see animals that are currently off-exhibit. You will then explore our Laboratory to find out how we treat and maintain the 1.3 million gallons of water that make up the aquarium. Finally, your tour guide will take you into our Food Prep Kitchen to see what we feed our thousands of creatures in order to keep them healthy and strong.
At least 2 weeks advance reservations are required for large groups of 10 or more people. Cameras are not allowed on Behind-the-Scenes Tours.
