Children of all ages, even the grown-up ones, wonder what it would be like to go beyond the aquarium glass and grab a behind-the scenes look at a world of imagination and adventure. Well, here’s your chance. Bring your family face-to flipper (or fin) with their favorite creatures and connect with them on an up-close and personal level with a Virginia Aquarium Premium Experience.
The Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center’s Harbor Seal Splash is the only program in the United States that allows visitors to interact with harbor seals.
Get out on the water! Winter Wildlife, Dolphin Watching and Ocean Collection boat trips leave our docks all year.
